Some very clever attraction mechanics make for a solid strategic tile placement game. Nice components round off the title nicely. Recommended.

I really like this game. Not a carcasonne ripoff as I have heard however it does have tile laying. Be cleaver when to use your tokens. Player 1 is certainly at a disadvantage on this game. but it rotates so everyone gets a chance. I did Play this wrong as Garbage tiles replace tiles we did not play that way. But that changes the dynamic of the game. I wish the rules had bigger font. Very tough to read the rule book. Also Players aids on bonus tiles would have worked as well. It's great I highly recommend it.

I like the game, but find the crows (though excellently designed/produced) to be a little too fiddly. Depending on my mood, that can be enough for me to pass on the game.

Love the production of this game (and the crow meeples). Is a bit fidgety, especially when you have to disperse the murder. My husband compared it to Fearsome Floors (I guess it is the whole 'line of sight' thing) but I would say I liked Crows a lot better. Not sure how much love it will get around here; might take it to a Meet-up and see how it is with more than 2p. Having said that, my first impression is that it seems to lack some depth, in what way it's hard to say but it just feels like it should have something more strategic to it for and abstract.

All reality is a game. Physics at its most fundamental, the very fabric of our universe, results directly from the interaction of certain fairly simple rules, and chance... (Iain Banks)

Players place tiles and then position their "shiny objects" to attract the most crows. After everyone has had a go, points are calculated each turn for the number of crows which are attracted (because attracting Crows is a good thing..?).
Crows move according to simple rules.
There is not much to do when it isn't your turn, and hopefully players move quickly. It is one of those games where if one player is less acute than the others, the person playing immediately after will be at a significant advantage.
It is OK, plays in about 40 minutes. The crow meeples are small and stand-up only with reluctance.

This is actually a pretty enjoyable, dressed up abstract!

LIKES:

* The little wooden crow-eeples are a nice touch, particularly when they flock together around shiny objects.
* The theme is actually quite fitting and humorous in some ways.
* The variance of the tiles make for a different game each time as the board will be different every game. I also appreciate that there is a bonus associated with placing your shiny item on an empty tree tile and that there are a couple other types of tiles which change up play a bit (shiny trinket breaks ties & cemeteries score you double points).
* A murder of crows occurs if 6 or more crows end up on a spot meaning two fly off as a happy couple and the others are distributed in a spiral pattern so they unflock/uncluster to create more choice in placement of your shiny object.

DISLIKE:

* While the box says 4 can play, I think this is one of those games that play best with 2 or 3...like I feel so many tile placement games tend to do.

Stefan Feld games are balanced and mathematically elegant while being obtuse, emotionally detached, and mechically inelegant. The most overrated designer of modern games. The King of JASE.

A fine tile-laying game, but a bit too simple. It feels like luck is the biggest factor here. I just don't see a way to play well unless you get lucky.

I like how the crows gather and then separate. That's a great way to keep the crow piles from getting too large.

Received in the WBC math trade August 5th.

Given to my buddy as a gift.

A nice looking little abstract game. I wish it played a bit quicker than it does, but it's a keeper.

Sweetgotham wouldn't trade me this for'The Boardgame Geek Game' I enjoyed this at BGG.con. I played it with Bryan and my wife and others. Anyway. The crows are neat.

This is an excellent little game. It has great component quality, plays in about 1/2 hour, offers challenging decisions, while containing a small footprint and remaining easily accessible. If you are looking for a light family game to introduce to new gamers, take a look at crows. An underrated game.

P.S. Also plays great with 2!

Great competitive tile placement game. Very underrated. I just wish the crows were bigger so they would be easier to pick up and move.
