Fascinating game with high replay value. You'll spend sleepless nights thinking up new strategies. New edition has nice but smallish wooden counters and textures on the hexes. Expensive but worth it.

First impression..I give it a 10. Alot of setup... long play... alot of cleanup might keep some away, but I don't mind it at all. VERY enjoyable game play! (I also love a game with 1000+ pieces!

Always ready for a game of this, providing I have the time to spare. The supreme resource management game, with geese and donkeys.

Can be a savage game if played that way.

One of the best games ever !
The emphasis is on logistics, especially on transport. Each player starts the game with three donkeys, a heap of wooden boards,some stones and two geese.

The possibilities to play different scenaries make the players choose from playing peaceful or more tight maps with lot of confrontation.

I've played a few solo games and one two-player on an easy map. Some people might find this game fiddly but it's easy to get into the swing of things and it moves along nicely.

It's slow, and a real brain-burner to play (though the rules aren't terribly complicated). But I love this kind of game! Ran play-by-email version for a while.

Fascinating game. Winning is almost secondary - I'd rather get my stock than defeat my opponent. Takes a while though - I tend to play over two sittings.

I had R&B rated a 9 for years. After playing again for the first time in a couple years I bumped it to a 10. What a great game. So much room to modify the game to your tastes. If you want a cut throat game, you can configure the board for that. If you want to develop your own empire in your own corner of the board you can. You can configure a board that will give you any degree of conflict between those two extremes.

I really really like empire building games where you start with little and build up. Even if you lose you have a sense of accomplishment at the end of the game. R&B is the best of the best if you agree with the two previous sentences.

Pure gaming joy!!! I've had an idea like this in my head for a while. But Splotter beat me to it. It's process engineering the game.

now this is a fun game, and one just up my alley. it has tons of things to do, and many ways to win. like Antiquity, it has some many components and build cycles, that you'll probably never get tired of it. yay! after several more plays, i've upped this to a 10. it just has the best game play, and i always feel like playing it. if it were a shorter game, i'm sure it would be on the table all the time.

I seem to like fiddly games (yes it is fiddly). This is the ultimate game of logistics! Your moves have a long lasting impact and the game has a steep learning curve. There is almost no luck involved and like all Splotter designs it features some very clever mechanisms. The incredible depth of this game and the huge number of different possible strategies make me come back to this again and again.

Yes, it takes a long time to play. But while you're playing, you have no idea that much time has passed. Hardly any downtime, great mechanics, and a TON of bits. Rating gets higher the more it's played.

Finally played this one and I love it! I agree with the comment that it's fiddly (it has LOTS of components) but very much disagree with the comments on too much downtime. Turns usually are all done simultaneously and I found the downtime to be fairly low (though never played with 4 ). It's definitely an epic game, but there is so much variety that it makes it more of a gaming toolkit than a singular game. Quite frankly, if I see another lame "filler" or "beer & pretzel" game I'm going to be ill. Sometimes I'm in the mood for something evolving, deep, and intricate. In conclusion, this game does not make me ill.

UPDATE: Given the nature of this game, it doesn't come out often, but every time it does I really enjoy it. Even though it's not something I would play frequently, it is in a short list of games that I really don't want to part with.

Played several times solo, and in both 2- and 4-player games.

A masterfully designed procedural game that is extremely engaging and a great deal of fun. Lengthy without being long, it is not just an expensive grail, it is a game that deserves play, and a lot of it.

Cannot play this game enough. Make your little area the most efficient possible in order to achieve your goals, but on a tight map, you've got to protect against neighbors stealing your geese!

Fun brain-burner, and solitaire variant is enjoyable, too. Gets a bit too long if players seek conflicts.

I've only played this solo so far but I can tell already that this is my kind of game. It's just grabs me to have all these resources that I have to use to transform into different items and factories which can then be used for other things, etc.

In a way, it reminds me of a toy I had as a kid where a dumptruck would pick up black balls, travel down a road, dump them for the next truck, and then the next truck would then pick up the balls, dump them back into the dumptruck, who would then go up the hill and dump them into a container for the original dumptruck to pick up again! That toy was amazing and that's what this game reminds me of and it gets me very, very excited.

I also like the control it requires in your transportation networks.

Terrific game. I find the low-tech ambiance of the game (geese, donkeys, rafts and wagons) to be very charming. Have only played solo. The one-player puzzles at Splotter's site are VERY challenging. My first attempts were abysmal but now I'm starting to get the hang of things. (Studying the solution to "Sea for One" really helped me understand how the game works.) Also own the Planes & Trains expansion but haven't tried it yet. [20 plays]
