My wife and I have played a few games now, actually started with the variant "The Birds". haha Big scores for sure. Each game we play gets better and more strategic. Absolutely a keeper and we'll be playing this one for years to come.

Great game! Great design and we love the artwork. The cool Poe setting, the graveyards, really awesome job. Very cool gameplay video you guys created too, so cool!

Found this game just by surfing here on the Geek. My wife says to me "Hey wait a minute, scroll back up!" Sure enough she spotted the ad for Crows running at the top of the page. Found it on ebay immediately and won the bid that night. Been enjoying the game ever since.

Cheers!

Man, i must have missed something. Maybe I got the rules wrong. It seemed rather random and meaningless to me and I really wanted to like it. Glad you're enjoying it!

The only random elements I can think of would be the initial play field setup, pulling a tile at random, and drawing a random power token when choosing to put your shiny object on a crowless tree tile (the ones with no pictured crows).

The rest is entirely up to you. Trying to draw as many crows to you as you can while trying to keep your opponent from getting any at all involves some thought and can get tricky from my time with it.. Placement of your shiny object is anything but random. Same as deciding when to use the trash tile, when to use a power, where to place your tile, etc.

Give it another chance if you can, maybe you'll like it better the next go round.

That's what we do it for.

Don't know if you are into such things, but you might consider writing a short review of Crows. The game has very few actual reviews, and I know that people on the Geek really hunger for Reviews above all else, as that helps them judge whether a game is worth buying.

Regardless, have fun!

I love this game and Tyler was kind enough to reply with the one rules question we had.
