Though I have a spot for this that works nicely...it's a pretty big box.

Roads and Boats is great as a low-conflict couples game? Who knew! (Thankfully, JohnRayJr did.)

The variable map setups can change things up (and we like using a 3p map in a 2p game).

One of the Splotter titles I hadn't had a chance to try yet, a very kind person named Ken (I believe?) agreed to do a 2p teaching game with me. We played a friendly game, which was an excellent way to learn the ropes here and see how the tech trees pan out.

Since it was just the two of us and we weren't antagonizing one another, the game took only 2.5-3 hours with teaching. I can easily see it being considerably longer - but even more interesting - when you have 3 or 4 and are getting in each others way.

I love the strategic-scale logistics going on here. It has a very unique feel to it and I see why it's highly regarded today.

Condition: Used condition. Played twice. Box and components show little to no wear. Includes a few plastic organizers to help keep the components sorted.

Edition: 4th Edition. Note: this edition notably had a misprint for the coin tokens, as they were printed too dark. I never bothered to correct these or get replacements from the publisher.

Shipping: Free to the USA. No international shipping.

It's been quite a while since I played this, but I remember that there are different set up configurations - I'm sure some, or even most, of them would play in under 3 hours.

There is tech to develop and a definite advancement in the stuff you have and the stuff you can do.

Got a three-player game in this weekend. It was a rather boring, non-confrontational scenario, as I was teaching two new players. Well, it was a bit boring for me, anyway, as we didn't have any conflict.

The upside is that both other players enjoyed it, and want to play again on a tighter, more confrontational map.

I consider that a success!

I bought R&B in April, and have played it four times so far - once with my wife, and three times solo. I work at home and find it enjoyable to have a solo game set up and play a few rounds when I have lunch or take a break.

Lately, I've been obsessing over how to make the game less fiddly, and easier to set up and break down, which will translate into more plays of this great game. On Monday, I scanned all of the different map tile types and edited them into a Powerpoint document so that I can easily create printable digital maps. I have created several, including the mesopotamia map below that I had printed at the UPS Store on laminated 11 x 17" cardstock. It came out really well, fits in the box, and now I don't need to overlay a plastic sheet.



Mesopotamia is really challenging because the rivers make it hard to range over the map. Stone becomes critical to generate early so that you can build bridges. There aren't enough map tiles to do anything fancy with researched technology, and only two pastures means you have to balance goose and donkey breeding vs putting buildings down there. After two previous bad games, I abandoned most research, except specialized (gold) mines and used carts to move things around once I had my road network built.

For this third try at mesopotamia, I managed to generate 2 nuggets and 3 coins for a measly score of 140. If I'd only had just one more round I'd have been able to convert the nuggets into one coin and two of the coins into stock certificates for a score of 200. Grrr!

I still kind of suck at this game, but it's absolutely addictive and engrossing, particularly in solo play. Also, with only 20 rounds, the solo game doesn't take too long to play.

I'm really loving this game!
