Wow. 3 playings as of this writing, and it just gets better. Definitely a steep learning curve, and each board seems to make you rethink what you learned last time anyway. Looking forward to more plays.

I liked R&B right away, but I wondered if it would become less interesting as it became more familiar. In fact, it did just the opposite. After you reach the point where conflict becomes an issue, it's amazing how intricate the possibilities and counter-possibilities become. I'm very impressed by the simple mechanisms that drive the game. The deeper you dig, the richer it gets.

An ash I know, Yggdrasil its name. With water white is the great tree wet; thence come the dews that fall in the dales. Green by Urth's well does it ever grow.

Very simply, this is the best game mechanic I have ever played. The rules are simple (though it will take a session to understand the game objective), but the gameplay is very strategic.

Only played twice, but can't wait to play more. To put it simply it's a super game of Settler's. Of course that's an oversimplification. Can't wait to play more.

A big thank you to Sterling Babcock for teaching this at BGG.CON 2010. A very satisfying civilization-building game that emphasizes economy of moves since transportation of goods proves equally important to production of resources.

Probably my least favorite of the Splotter games I've played. Antiquity kind of seems like R&B crossed with Indonesia. Talk about fiddly! Some of the movement rules are ridiculous. The main reason I want to pick this one up is its single player challenges.

One play, 2p. Had a wonderful time and lost horribly. I didn't get the Stock Market thing built. I can see my rating growing as I play it more.

I'm not very experienced with the game yet, but I have really enjoyed my introduction. The simultaneous movement/conflict resolution dynamic is pretty novel...and seems to work to minimize downtime in what might otherwise be a pretty stop-and-go affair.

When I started playing, it was a little overwhelming how many different types of chits there are. But its not so bad once you get started.

I'm looking forward to playing more. I may have to whip out a couple of these solo scenarios.

Hmmm...I have played this "Grail game" once and, while I enjoyed it, I'm not sure it's worth the huge time investment, primarily because I am concerned about diversity of strategy. I like there to be more than one way to win a game and I just didn't see how monument-building could be a viable strategy unless your opponent is asleep. No, this one is a race to the stock exchange, however with a plethora of deep and far-reaching decisions along the way, no real limit to replayability with differing maps, and direct player interaction, it's certainly worth another look.

I'm sort of torn. It's deliciously thinky in way that I sort of enjoyed, and I actually had fun with managing the logistics for the first couple of hours, but R&B is just way, way, way too long for how repetitive and dry it is. I might consider playing again with 2 or 3, but not with four. If I have five or six hours to devote to a single game, I want something with theme and depth, not a static VP-builder.

If I were rating strictly on my desire to play again, this one might be closer to a four, especially with four players. As a two player game I'd definitely give it another shot. I'm giving it a six because I admire the mechanics and theming.

Simply put, I admire the game, and acknowledge the skillful play required, but it is pretty much zero fun, especially after the second hour. Boring. It gets a bonus point or two for having a theme that matches the mechanics and has the right "feel" for a logistics game.
