Putting any Rio Grande game up for sale is hard for me to believe, but this one has been a struggle to get back to the table. I think I just need the right group and enough time to play it.

I snapped up this game at a convention a couple weeks ago, and I've been anxious to get it played. After reading through the rules, I decided to set it up for a two player game, Brown vs. White.

I had a hard time visualizing how this game would play out just from the rules, but working through it actually went more smoothly than I expected. The trickiest part was selecting the card and cubes at the beginning of each round. Once that was done, the actual turns went quickly. Brown began with a focus on cards that would give end game points, while White went with a strategy of collecting in-game bonuses, such as reduced costs for building or extra gold.



Brown was ahead throughout most of the game. However, Brown soon ran out of gold and had difficulty buying points. White's bonus gold helped a lot in that regard, and it allowed White to catch up in later rounds. Brown's end game bonuses helped, but White had purchased more city tiles in sequence, a difference that gave White the lead. The final score was White 79 - Brown 75.

I found that this game played very well solitaire. There was very little interaction between the two colors. Brown would occasionally take a card purely to deny it to White, but other than that, they could mostly ignore each other. There could have been competition for the goods tiles in the city, but there were so many options available, it rarely became an issue. Perhaps the biggest impact of competition was from which color was able to get the high value shipping rewards first.

The game provides a nice thinky puzzle without being as brain-burny as I had expected. It seemed rather like Trajan-lite. There was moderate opportunity for strategic planning with selecting the cards and cubes, but I found it didn't have nearly the layers of complexity when it came to the actions. I never generated a chain of combo actions the way I did during my one (multiplayer) game of Trajan.

thumbsup Plays decently solitaire, even without official solo rules.

thumbsdown Spinning wheels as in Glass Road would have made this easier to manage. I had a little trouble spinning the cardboard windroses without jostling the cubes.

thumbsdown I found it cumbersome to have both a player board tableau AND an activated card tableau. I felt it took up excessive space, on top of the extra space required by the windroses and cubes.

However Stefan won me over at our second meeting even if I was still unaware of his name. I loved the process of setting yourself up for that big turn where everything clicks. Immediately after my first game I had to have it.
I do not get Macao to the table often now days, it is a bit heavier than the local gamers will tolerate, but I would happily play it anytime.

This has occasionally made appearances over time, with one famous occasion where one of the players managed to more or less break the game on his first play by never bothering to leave port. The May play was more traditional, I believe.

Acquired: 19 November, 2014

The second Alea game I receieved from the BGGCon 2014 Virtual Flea Market.

Confession time: When I arrived at BGGCon, my wife called me (sadly, she wasn't able to come with me this year) and told me to not get any games. Instead, I should make a list for Christmas. I said that I would do so. I did make the list, but I had already been contracted to purchase a few games.

Anyway, this game is fun to look at. It is a game that I might be able to get out once in a while, but I don't think my wife is going to enjoy it.

A great game that both my wife and I enjoy. I received it for a birthday present a few years ago before it went out of print! Even though my wife almost always wins I'm always eager to get it to the table. Very happy to see its 'value' at 100%.
