Hi,

I'm a fan of Surprised Stare Games Ltd, liked Confucius really much and preordered Snowdonia in a minute after hearing/reading of it. It looks really great and the demo video from the UK Games expo was promising, but a suggested age of 8 and a game weight of 2.6 makes me a little bit nervous...

I see what you mean...I would suggest 10+ is probably more realistic BUT the rules ARE simple - seven actions to choose from with only 2 (possibly 3) workers plus some round administration. There are only 5 resources and 30 cards in the 'deck'...the typical Euro-gaming family should have no trouble with it.

However...in the hands of gamers it can become something much more malicious

Played the game a few times now and it's a 12/14 plus , complexity 3. Great game - taught it to 3 tables at my hotel in Essen and I am fairly sure everyone who has not bought it I going to- it's a wonderful game.
