Can be a fun game. Personally I prefer playing with those who aren't always literal in their card selections. Without a bit of humor I find this one a bit dry.

Decent, light game, though some players have difficulty seeing how to fit certain pieces (something about the triangles that makes it harder than squares.) Plays well with 3 or 4. Decent with 2 players if you don't mind working with two sets of pieces.

Fun game. The variety of race abilities makes every game unique. The fact that no game has lasted more than 6-7 turns means we are probably asking for allies a bit too frequently (though at least we keep it even as to who we choose as allies.)

Depending on the cards drawn, can be better than the Library for getting coin. If used following +2 Action cards, it has potential to pull enough cards to allow further chaining.

Adds new life to the Dominion game. The cards provide more player interaction than the first game, though it might slow down new players due to the (small) increase in complexity.

We purchased this one before the first base game, so all logged plays for any Dominion are under this one.

Fun game, though I can see where some would dislike it, due to the simultaneous ship building and the random encounters then turning that ship into swiss cheese. Those without good spatial recognition will be slow building, and will therefore be stuck with less useful parts.

Similar to Pachisi or Sorry, minus the "safe" spaces near a player's home. Each of a player's pieces is a distinct animal with its own movement rules, which provides options in some instances, restrictions in others.

Decent first half of the game, but the random die rolls to move at the end often make a well-planned route completely pointless. Might be more entertaining if we tried playing to screw each other up (forcing extra stops or longer routes) instead of focusing solely on our own routes.

Adds slight variety to the game, especially when everyone holds back on spending in hopes of one of the specials coming up. Certainly not necessary.

The one card that we always ignore is the warehouse. When it comes up, there never seems to be a reason for anyone to bid on it (though that may change now that we have the China/Korea expansion.)

Early reading of the rules seemed confusing, but it really isn't too difficult once you figure it out. The key is that cards used for building are left in front of you, so the cities you build are often based on what you need for majorities, instead of simply based on what is convenient.

Definitely want to play this again.

2011 - Stickers have been placed, board has been written on, and cards have been torn up. Awesome game at the start, but I'm realizing my interest has been in opening the packs and writing on the board. Once the packs are all open, this is just another variant of Risk. This will then only see maybe one play a year (similar to how often we play Risk 2210)

2014 - It has been three years since our last plays. This was sufficient enough time to make this rather enjoyable again. I suspect it helped that we weren't concerned with opening packs. It also helped that we weren't playing some long, grand strategy and instead attacked as opportunities presented themselves, even if it left some territories open to counter-attacks.

Fun game, though you want at least 4 players to keep an early leader from running away with the game. 6 to 8 players can prove rather chaotic, with lots of kills to slow things down. So long as you balance the number of players with the number of checkpoints, this is a good game. Some players have difficulty programming their bots, so this is definitely not for everyone.

Light game that plays rather quick. Two player doesn't provide much in the way of competition, as there are too many areas to expand to (perhaps limiting the number of locations would help.)

Four player game was a bit more competitive. If all but one person passes, the last person has a chance to play all billboards and lock everyone out of a block, providing a massive amount of points (especially if done early in the game.)

Overall, I'm not too impressed. Not one we will likely play (unless there is an interesting variant...)

The game starts out calm enough, but the tension quickly grows. The last couple minutes slow down as there tend to be few objectives remaining and not enough time to attempt them, but this doesn't really detract from the game.

If it weren't for the setup time, this would see more frequent play.

Quick filler, with different strategies for 2 vs 4 players (never tried it with 3.) With two players, the trick is to run out of two types of pieces before your opponent (usually huts and temples.) With four players, you need to place as many temples as possible before the tiles run out.

The first play seemed a bit random. A couple additional plays shows there is a bit of strategy as to which tickets you take, mostly by focusing on a couple of the bonus cities. With two players, the winner seems to be the one collecting more locos (which results in fewer unfinished tickets.)

Fun, light game.

One downside is the fact that chain reactions can quickly move a winning player down in the ranks, but this is often entertaining to watch. Plus, royal islands can be used to localize chain reactions.

The other issue is that random tile draw can certainly help or hurt. Expanding in several directions is the only way to counter this.

Strategy tends to be building up your starting castle as much as possible, then attempt to gain points from the work others do on theirs. At the same time, attempt to score the King Bonus while keeping others from doing the same. In a two player game, some of the action cards are less useful, so it is a bit random as to whether drawing one will help.
