#7

This game warms my heart. I love love love building up to mega-turns. Some of the cards are a real dice roll to select, especially the end-game scoring ones that only end up being worth it if you acquire sets of the same card type, which is no guarantee when you don't even come close to playing the whole deck in any one game. I also think newer players overestimate the pain from punishment tokens. Sure, several would suck, but getting one in turn 3 for not having any cubes isn't THAT big of a deal, in my opinion.

Though it's from one of the very popular designers, it's not the game that immediately comes to mind when gamers rave about Stefan Feld's best games. I've read more comments about The Castles of Burgundy than about any other of his games. Yet I think that a love for Macao signifies someone who would agree with me on other games I've given high ratings to and so that new neighbor would be my friend.

For that matter, any Euro game appearing at the top of a box I was carrying into my neighbor's house would make me want to get to know that person better. A gamer right next door! Wow!

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.
