Three games in one box with one set of components? Big win!

Of the three games in the box I've only played the first two. he first one is a decent little game, that will require a few more plays before I grok all the strategy.

I really like the way the board builds out.

Scoring is fiddly, but a good math exorcise for younger kids.


The Second game =- putting out fires caused by a volcano I find very enjoyable.

Graphics are weak, and there were some poor layout choices made when creating the rulebook.

Not your father's Arkham Horror, and a very long game

Though dubious at first, I had fun with this game. Worked very well with two players, but it would probably get a little slow with many more.

After a couple plays, it seems the chance to win or lose is not just dependent on the players. Sure, bad players can lose the game when it is winnable, but there are times when perfect play will not win the day.

Other than that, very fun.

I still like the original Settlers, and I like this addition to the series as well. If you are looking for a more complex experience than the base Settlers of Catan game, this is a great upgrade.
The addition of rails (and a goods delivery mechanism) seems out of place at first, but by the end of the game I stopped comparing this game to the original and I really liked the whole package. The addition of gold and the extraordinary building phase are strong additions as well.

After one play: This is a neat game with some cool mechanisms; well balanced but it is very random.

The set making out of dice rolls is interesting, but not terribly deep. In all fun, but not compelling. Playing additional scenarios will give a much better perspective.

I've managed to play this, and it is fun, however it's a rough start because the terminology is awkward the rules book needs work, and it feels more like a prototype than a completed game. (A prototype I'd gladly play again!)

Also, you really need a good idea about what cards you have in your deck or you are likely to feel lost or useless at some points during the game.

Game play is smooth and works for a streamlined dungeon crawl game. The one failing is the art and production quality is so bland Castle Ravenloft fails to evoke the rich fantasy theme that Descent does through rich illustrations, textures, and strong design.

I suspect my rating of this game will change but right now it's a 7 on game play, and cool use of components. And of course I dominated the first game I played of it.

It's all about the numbers. Three kinds of numbers in fact - the number of people you get, the number of victory points you have, and the ascending order of votes to join the EU.

Get an early lead so you can be the one to propose deals first, and have the most units.
Remember, VPs are different than people.
If possible, set up your influence so you can roll from one successful election to the next. (If two countries next to each other cost the same, and one will come to election first, make sure you can take the one that will come to election first then take the next one after moving one of your bits to it when winning the first vote.)

Players reduce the game board as they score points based on the position they move from. Interaction revolves around blocking access to prime scoring tiles and trapping opponents on isolated tiles.

Movement reminds me of Ricochet Robots but with more control. Very engaging.

Box is way too big, but it might be fun to combine two sets or create special effect tiles.

Not a bad game, but it requires a great deal of micromanagement - the kind of micromanagement that makes you wonder what exactly you were doing when it was all over. Perhaps with more plays it's secrets will be revealed. The big key seems to be when to spend your money, encourage the others to spend loads of theirs and make sure you have a big handfull of cash for the last three auctions - you want to be able to prevent anyone from getting two out of those final three auctions.

I'm still not exactly sure how I won the one game I played.

Requires quick thought and perception. Simultaneous play, with fastest correct deduction getting the highest points.

An interesting fantasy poker game, like a cross between blackjack and Colossal Arena.

Between thieving from the pot, or building up your hand for successive rounds, it can sometimes benefit you to lose a hand, and that's a great element. Each hand plays quickly, and it'd be possible to keep a running tab of points/chips so games could be held over for multiple game sessions, or used as the ultimate filler.

Tzolkin, a worker placement where the value of the work your workers do evolves over time. As the game proceeds players advance/rotate the gears moving the workers to different action spots. Actions located "later" on the gears are more valuable, so waiting can be good, but being able to pay your workers in corn is more important.

On their turn players can either place 1(+) workers claim the work from 1(+) workers. The game ends after a revolution of the central gear. To allow for many paths to victory, and variable starting setup for each player, the game has to be a bit fiddly. There is a lot on the board, but it comes together pretty well.

I like the way this game plays out, but it is not as exciting as the theme promises. Even though the base mechanics would be applicable to other themes, this is a good fit, for an age of sale game, and does not feel pasted on. It feels a little like a cross between Pirate's Cove (crew, cannon, and goods management) and Niagara (wind direction/river speed). The one thing this game lacks is the ability to actually pirate - apparently there are only as many ships in the new world as there are players, and on retrospect that seems ... odd.

If you are looking for a light Cthulhu Mythos related co-op game that can be played in an overall evening of gaming, this fits the bill. I had fun playing this game.

This is not a meaty game, and it feels over produced for the content, but because I love the Cthulhu Mythos, the great production values are a great thing for me.

It really feels like this game needs expansions to provide game elements that are lacking such as diversity of resources, and special character powers.

Witch of Salem suffers from the most common co-op failure: communications prohibitions. This could be fixed.

The first time I played W&W I didn't really care for it that much, it seemed to lack... substance. However, we've played it several times and it really steps up to the plate for replay ability something I find most trivia games lack. Most likely it's due to the same thing I thought was a problem the first time. Games are short, bite-sized for trivia games, that still satisfy. Lending themselves to doing four or five games in a row to try and find an ultimate winner. In all, a unique play experience for trivia games.

Zoon is a fun two player game. The factions are entertaining and different enough that it affects the way the game plays. It could easily be adapted into a three or four player game, but if I were doing that I’d include spaces that would allow the player to change the orientation of cards for movement purposes. I think I have all the factions released in the USA, at some point I’ll trot them out and make sure they are listed here.
