It was entertaining enough, but generally speaking this is not my kind of thing. Okay for a filler, I suppose.

Cornerstone Essential (2 plays) - _7_



Cornerstone Essential looks like a full-blooded dexterity game but that is a bit of a false conclusion. It does have a dexterity element but due to the comparatively small number of building blocks and their fairly large size it is much less pronounced than in something like Bausack or Animal upon Animal, for example. Cornerstone, in contrast, is more about spatial awareness and placing your blocks in a way that ensures your own progress and inconveniences your opponents at the same time. In that way, it is quite similar to The Climbers, although the checkerboard requirement oddly makes it feel a little less constricted. The dice, however, can easily make up that difference.


Morels (2 plays) - _6_



Fairly simple drafting and set collection game with some original ideas to keep things interesting. The primary concern of the game is getting around your hand limit in one way or another.

The game should appeal to card counters as keeping track of mushrooms that have been removed from the game is quite important. It's also a little cumbersome, requiring the card row to be shifted each and every turn.


Villa Paletti (1 play) - _6_



In Villa Paletti you remove building blocks from the bottom of the structure and move them to the top, always trying to keep the structure from collapsing (somewhat akin to Jenga, but really, that comparison doesn't do the game justice at all).

Interestingly, despite being a very simple game at its core, in some cases the rules get in the way of the game, adding bells and whistles where none are needed. For example, the four player game is vastly superiour to the more complicated three player "variant", to the extent that the latter doesn't seem worth playing at all.

For this reason, even though Villa Paletti is a nice enough game in its own right, I'd recommend a simpler, more focused game like Animal Upon Animal instead.


War & Sheep (3 plays) - _5_



War & Sheep is a light two-player game that is playable in 15 minutes. The basic framework (ie. movement and tile collection rules) are pretty standard but the over-the-top action cards turn the game into a highly unpredictable affair. Unless you're expecting a paradigm of strategy it is mildly entertaining, though.


Yedo (1 play) - _5_



In more than one way, Yedo is clearly a crossbreed between Princes of Florence and Lords of Waterdeep. That doesn't necessarily mean that is is entirely derivative, though. In fact, I might like the basic framework a little more than either of its progenitors despite it being rather plain and a little on the long side (made somewhat worse by using variable player order).

There are, however, a couple of points that severely mar that good initial impression. The most important is that for me it is pretty much unacceptable that a game of this length (expect roughly 3 hours with a table of 4 or 5) is decided by completely random and arbitrary events in the final 15 minutes. This issue is much more prominent in the Samurai setting, obviously, but even in the Geisha setting drawing the right mission cards or being targeted by some of the offensive action cards can make a huge difference towards the end.

Turns out I'd rather play Princes of Florence or Lords of Waterdeep after all.


Augustus (4 plays) - _5_



"Gamer Bingo" is quite a fitting description. It is very much like Bingo but still provides space for a few decisions and some player influence. Luck still plays an important role, of course, and the game needs to be played quickly in order not to overstay its welcome. Six players is probably also a little much since it is a good idea to keep an eye on what other players are doing, and downtimes upon completion of multiple objectives can easily become a drag.

Light filler-type family game with a pretty bad rulebook.

Another 'mistake' as I had traded this for a shrink copy of Ticket To Ride... a few years ago this was expensive but this year I saw a lot of copies from discount stands going for around 15 euros... Again if I'd know I'd have brought one at the fair.

I'm beginning to think that the Math Trade at Essen, despite being a great way to pass on games, is a bit of a lottery as you never know what you might be able to pick up anyways from the zillion stalls dotted around the halls.

One thought that only hit me too late though. This version of the game is actaully a cut down version of the original Cornerstone using only half the pieces. I really should've brought myself another copy so that I could have the full original version that I really wanted... so hoping they're equally cheap next year ?
