This is the 9th installment of my video review of board games.

Hope you find it useful. A very attractive and fun game.

Excellent review as always.

Currently this is our favorite game. My wife actually plays it and enjoys it. A tip to anyone out there. If you have a wife that will play Carcassone....this is game #2 after that. Im just trying to figure out what game #3 is while I have her playing.

Excellent review. Regarding the -1 on the otherwise-excellent components because of the box not closing properly, I agree. I followed the easy instructions in this thread to resolve this.

Nice concise review. Especially like how each piece was explained efficiently up front.

A clear and concise review, thanks very much!

You've probably tipped me from "not sure" to "buying as soon as christmas is over"

I have actually already done that! It's a very useful post. It did mean having to crush the dice cup a bit though.

Thebes? (Although I'm not that keen on it as a 2-player game.)

Great review.

On the side note I wanted to comment that the reviewer looks exactly the same as the Sniper from TF2, and he's Aussie to boot :D

Thanks for the review! Very nicely done! Great viewpoints, great close-ups, nice overview of the components and gameplay.

*Enter teacher mode*
Although I would like to add that - as constructive critisism - I like Tom Vasels' presentation better, he sounds more enthousiastic and uses a lot more intonation. Since that's not really difficult, you might make your reviews even better by paying attention to this.
*exit teacher mode*

Despite that you just pushed me over the edge about buying the game!

Nice and short review.
This video made me realize that I like work placement games after all!

eh, I disagree - Tom always comes across as too "manic" in his reviews. Plus it seems that Tim has a script and sticks with it, resulting in far fewer verbal stumbles and "ahs" and "uhs". I like these reviews and the toned-down delivery. Thumbs up!
