Almost. But there was a nice A3 poster of the single goal of the game cards in the package, outside the box.

Btw: I simply love the smell of fresh LudoFact-made boardgame. After being absent a while this sucks me right into that old fever again.. *sigh*

I also received my copy today and it looks so wonderful, especially the tiles. Those are so much bigger than I expected.

It is really a very beautiful game!

I have to second that. Just punching out the nine(!) sheets of cardboard. The components are top notch and really, really stunning as the colors are even more beautiful as they appeared to be in the the preview renderings.

To speak of production quality: There have been no compromises taken. The wood pieces are the "good German" ones as you know them from mass productions like Carcassonne, the cutting of the tiles is most accurate and the printing is simply great. The only thing I could have wished for would be linen finish of the cards. But that may be a matter of personal taste.

To put things short: I am very satisfied with the production value!

Got my copy today as well.

Impressive! No delay, not one single day.

There are a lot of publishers out there who could learn from that!!!!


Congrats Ludically!

Hi,

the most important thing is how it plays. Is it good? Is it fun? Is it challenging?

Come on guys, get it on the table, play it and then tell us if it is worth the 60€...

I plan to do a game of Archipelago tomorrow, i am really looking forward on reporting.

I found 2 little things that i am not 100% happy with (and please dont misunderstand this as german critizising)
The two starting tiles (sea/land) are on different tiles, seams to be a mistake in print.
The plastic inlay carrying the tiles is a little bit thinner than the tiles at the bottom, but they seem to fit everything perfectly. This may just be the case in my box although.

The rest of the game is just: WHOA! wow
Really beautiful and amazing. Many thanks to Ludically.

Think I never had so much high expectations for a game...

Yep, the desert tile ended up not being on the back of the open sea title. Mea culpa. But fortunately, it doesn't hurt game play.

The plastic tray to hold the tiles is indeed a tight fit at the bottom. It's designed that way to make sure the tiles stay neatly piled up and secret. It'll work itself out like a good leather shoe after a while

Best regards,
Jean-Charles

You are not alone, cause I am here with you (Michael Jackson).

I also thought that I could have been the only one getting crazy over this smell.... But it seems that I'm not the only one
Maybe we chose Ludofact just because of the smell, who knows....

What would be a translation for "Nörgler"? whistle

The game is marvellous, a real beauty. I LOVE the inlay. kiss

BUT on small thing bothers me - the poster for the preorders would have needed to be like 2-4 mm shorter, and it would have fit into the box...
