Scandinavia is pretty unbalanced with the Ferry action and Korea is too chaotic for a strategy game.

A neat little map if you 2-player AoS. I certainly don't - not worth it, no auction.
Print and play.

Don't be fooled by the horrific rule book and long playtime; this game is all about the metagame. And it's fun!

Good, light, quick, role-playing game. Especially good with 2-players.

Runaway leader problem, but fun nonetheless. If one player gets 5+ points in the lead, call it; no need to prolong the agony. The other guy can't catch up.

Checkers is relegated to a kid's game in my books. OK fun once in a while.

I like the elements C&K introduces but it makes Catan's balance issues even worse. Way worse.

Escape is a pretty fun dicefest but still a dicefest. You're playing against yourself for than anything. Pressure of clock (a lot of tension due to the clock) but push your luck; few decisions. Somewhat acceptable at 10 minutes playtime.

Coop action-point tile-flip but with a moving board. Coop + a lot of card draws and this game gets a little long for what you get.

A nifty area-control game with a lot of options for scoring. Fun and simple enough to break out for casual gamers.

Big, bland, luck of the draw. Play Age of Steam instead.

The mighty Settlers. Rekindled my love for gaming. A little boring anymore and I hate leaving my fate to the roll of the dice...

The art is garish and distracting, the gameplay clunky and long. I'll take any 18xx over this if I have this amount of time to game. AH's Civilization or Through the Ages are so elegant compared to this mess.

The winner of this game will not be the great strategist; the winner will be the one who remembers a bunch of tedious, fiddly steps and bonuses and takes forever on their turn to do so.

The Base game is ok as a casual game but I would take Age of Steam over the Standard game any time.

A very light but fun game, great for families with young children. Vexation is a must!
