Printed out the components for this game on plain paper just to see what 18XX was about. Have set it up and started a few games. It looks interesting, but I want to find some time to make a nicer print and look into it more when I have more time.

I got this game mainly because I liked the election theme (introduced with Die Macher) and wanted a more accessible election themed game. It seems to be more luck based than I would like, but I need a few more plays to see what strategies can be developed.

I see the reason Agricola is so well regarded, especially after grasping the idea that this is a game of maximizing efficiency. I love the aspect of increasing complexity by starting out a beginner player with the family game then progressing to the cards at the various levels. It also seems to be a different experience with each additional player. I anticipated the solo version, but so far, have been a little disappointed that it is more of a puzzle to see how you can preselect the cards and get the most points.

I have to rate this game higher than I might objectively would at this stage of my gaming hobby due to the special place it has in my memories of being my first serious and complex board game. I spent many Friday nights into Saturday mornings playing this game with my best friend from high school. I never seemed to be a good dice roller, so I never liked that aspect of battle, but I love mulling over the various strategies and seeing how they play out.

The revised edition did not live up to my expectations, but I still rate it high because of the series and the special place it holds in my memories. It is still a good game and makes me revisit strategies from the original edition. The Caucasus industrial complex and Sahara desert provide interesting challenges.

I missed out on this one as I was not staying on top of board game news when this came out. When I did regain interest in the series, it had already become rare and too expensive. I would still love to obtain and/or play this version given the opportunity. But, I am looking forward to the new Pacific and Europe versions that are coming out that can be combined. Hopefully these versions will surpass the Anniversary edition.

I got this mainly to pair with Europe 1940 so that I could play Global 1940. The rules are horrible with so much errata. The components are also inferior compared with Europe 1940.

This was my first experience into "Euro gaming". I liked the tile laying mechanic, but there was not enough meat here for me. I have enjoyed the times I have played it so far, but I foresee it becoming one that I want to hold onto, but probably will not bring to the table that often.

Does not scale well across number of players. Two player should only be for learning the game. So far, I have only had opportunities to play with two players, which we play as four logical players (each physical player plays two logical players) -- much more fun that way.

I really enjoy playing this game, but it has to be with the right crowd. I do not like it when it turns into a "let's make the most inventive answers we can and try to convince you it's acceptable." The timer is also very annoying.

I received this as a gift when it initially came out and was the craze. I enjoyed the first couple of plays and interacting with the DVD, but I quickly got tired of it. The interactive questions had less to do with movie trivia and more to do with observation, which is not what I was hoping for.
