More than meets the eyes. Light enough for the family, but subtle enough for the gamer after 2/3 plays. 2-5 players is a plus for me...

A játék komponensei nem olyan szépek mint az a képekről gondolná az ember. Olcsó műanyag helyett esetleg jó lett volna pótolni műgyantával vagy valami kellemesebb tapintású bármivel. A többi komponens tökéletes, egyedűl a színhelyesség zavaró néha. A játék nekem felhőtlen szórakozást hozott. A 3 akciópont körönként bőven jó arra, hogy az ember ne kombinálja túl magát, ezért hamar lelépi a körét. Első játékok bőven 1 óra alatt lementek a szabály magyarázattal együtt. Ha valamihez hasonlítanom kéne, akkor a Himalayat mondanám elsőnek. Ahogy változik a termények értéke az eladásnál, ahogy kikerülnek a piacra a termények mind-mind erős párhuzamot adnak. Családi játék, mert könnyű a szabályrendszere, viszont nem ajánlott vérkomoly gémereknek.

Good looking light pickup and deliver game. Use your actions good because you don't have a lot and one wrong move can ruin everything.
Plays very fast and is very enjoyable. Some people think this is a stupid game, but that is because they didn't understand the subtilities of the game. Every detail matters.

What a nice new release; the best I've played in a while! Love how short it is, how simple the rules are, how fast the decisions come, and that you get to do pick-up-and-deliver and not take all night with it! The pieces are super awesome; Ystari has done it again.

This is a good quick game. that is easy to learn once you go through a round. Much simpler than other Ystari games but very good non-the -less. mechanics seem to keep it close unless you make terribly bad decisions. Nice resource game with a feeling that 'you may not have done enough to win' ending but you might still win.

Az Ystari eddigi legszebb játéka. A grafika csodaszép. Élmény ránézni. Két dolog miatt vesztett pontot nálam. Az egyik visszakanyarodik a grafikához. Nem lehet könnyedén a különböző színeket megtalálni. A másik pedig, hogy sokat kell tökölődni az előkészületeknél. Viszont kötelező plusz pont: a játékos segédlet a paraván hátsó oldalán. Kevés az olyan játék, ami ennyire segítené a szabályok elsajátítását.
update: Az első tesztek után sem kellett visszavonnom a pontszámot. Üdítő a játékban, hogy gyors, viszonylag egyszerű, és mégis van benne mit gondolkodni.

Quick, quick game of agonizing decisions. Like Yspahan, you have far fewer actions than you want, and the game is over so fast that you're ready for more!

Könnyedebb játék, mint Ystaritól megszokott, igazi családi játék. De jó ötletek, szép kivetelezés -csak ne lenne olyan büdös az új műanyag-. Ugyanakkor az h tényleg az elefántokkal visszük a bálákat, aranyos és jó. És ami figyelemre méltó: tényleg vásárolni-eladni kell jó haszonnal, nem elég csak a pluszok gyűjtése: azzal a taktikával csúnyán utolsó lettem...

A visually beautiful offering that plays surprisingly fast given the depth there is. Analysis paralysis shouldn't be a problem as it is quite easy to optimize in really short term, but way too difficult to break it mathetically in long term. Another nice game with India theme.

I would argue that the game is quite deep. You have a very limited amount of actions and limited and ever changing resources on the board. You have to constantly adjust your strategy to do well and also keep in mind what the other players will do, so that you don't waste any of your own actions (like going to a cheap silk station, only to find that someone else has bought the last one!). Granted, you don't have to calculate the water consumption of the Italian army, based on Pasta use, but it's got a lot of depth.

Not only is the game deep and interesting, but it plays in under an hour, has great bits, and the theme is one that makes it attractive to people who otherwise wouldn't want to play an action management, pick-up-and-deliver game.

I think this game would be a perfect next step that would also be interesting for "gamers." I know I'm certainly interested in it and enjoy playing it.

Fast moving and simple, but it feels like a 'light' brain burner; lots of choices and options for short term and long term gain. The complaint that a player can score points by passing is silly; even our losing scores have been much higher than that.

Fantastic game. Not so simple as it is described. Yes, rules may be easier than any other Ystary's, but decisions are constant, and it is not obvious what to do to win. May play quite differently depending on the number of players.
Beautiful components for a really nice, not too long, game.

Light pickup & deliver. Plenty of little timing issues to consider here: a question of how much you can achieve with limited actions, but also identifying what you must do quickly or you'll miss out.

Good game. The mechanics are just clever enough to keep you interested and the game is pretty short. In fact, the length is just right so that the game does not overstay its welcome but you enjoyed what you did play.

Bombay is everything that a light, family-friendly pick-up and deliver game should be. The board and pieces are really nice to look at which pulls you in. The rules are easy to teach, yet offer some tough decisions. The game length is short enough for short attention spans.

This is a great game and I'm really glad I purchased it. My wife loves it so I think it will see a lot of action in our house.

Purchased from CSI March 17, 2011.

Great little pick up and deliver game. I like Tom Vasel - love the Dice Tower. But he did a great disservice to this game with the ridiculous claim that you could end with a competitive score if you passed every turn and took a coin. Just factually untrue.

Clueless as to why this rates/is valued so low.. some pieces do smell like solvent.. game play is pretty good, as a family/gateway game... if you like adding a little more meat. It's light and fast playing, but "thinky" at the same time. The board and bits are beautiful. I can think of a few of the more "popular" game titles, I'd rather NOT play, than this one. We love it.
