Thank you so much, Frediccini! I couldn't find Once Upon a Time in English anywhere. I love the art work and the idea of this game. Once again, your kindness and thoughtfulness humble me - you are beyond awesome.
This is a great worker placement with a unique worker movement mechanic. It is a lot of fun. It looks intimidating though, and I have trouble getting people to play, even when I know they love games that are even harder than this!
Not just AmeriTrash I haven't played; WOTR takes up the top two slots in the AmeriTrash rankings. Either it's very, very good, or the tie to Tolkien gives it a boost it doesn't deserve. Worth checking out - need to play.
Lightening fast game play, great mechanics, real strategy, and an awesomely integrated theme make this a favorite! There are good reasons that there have been eight editions of this game! It has definitely withstood the test of time.
