Ducosim organizes a game fair in Amersfoort, the Netherlands three times a year. This is for board games, miniature games, and heavy wargames.
This time I went with my son to the Summer edition with an extra festivity namely the
nomination of the Dutch Games Prize for Family and Expert to be made known to all relevant jury members.
One of the conditions for the prize is that the Dutch game rules are present in the game box. Since the Netherlands
being a relatively small country does not translate all titles, but in the meantime, enough beautiful titles are published.




The Dutch Games Prize, the quality award for Dutch-style board games. This game prize was created in 2001 by the national games association Ducosim, to offer the playing consumer an independent value judgment.

The Dutch Games Prize is divided into two categories: the Dutch Games Prize - Family and the Dutch Games Prize - experts. A family game is suitable for a large audience, including children from 8 years.
An expert game requires a little more playing experience.


For the best family play in the Netherlands nominated:


Luxor - Forgotten Treasures - Queen Games


Azul - Asmodee Netherlands / Hot games


The Mind - White Goblin Games


For the best expert game in the Netherlands nominated:


Chimera Station - The Game Brewer


Gaia Project - White Goblin Games


Paco Ŝako - Hot Games

The fair is meant for the members and also for the public, which plays a board game less often.
In the halls, the new titles are often demonstrated by publishers so you can always sit and play
is explained enthusiastically.

There are often beginning or smaller Dutch publishers at the fair that can be found with a prototype or a starting Kickstarter.

When I read a few months ago that Brass got a reissue with new colorful and slightly dramatic images, my interest was aroused.
Brass one of my favorite games of the past decades.
The beautifully streamlined mechanism with the action cards always gives beautiful sometimes difficult decisions.
The new Birmingham card plays well and offers, among other things, the beer and pottery new ways in which you as a player can put your creativity.



In the game, I always taste the historic romanticism of the industrial revolution, although the reality was really different.
The dark pewter also gives me the burden that the heavy work entailed for the ordinary workers.

For the passion of Martin Wallace, I am indebted to him how he wonderfully interweaves history and open game techniques for us
play fun at the table.



During one of the play evenings in Hilversum, I could try the game because one of the members
brought with it. But the box will also be nice in my game box.
Designers Gavan Brown, Matt Tolman, and Martin Wallace have created a beautifully refined product with Artists Lina Cossette, David Forest, and Damien Mammoliti.
brought on the market! They can do this more often!

During the evening I took some photo's during our gameplay.

Forgive me for my average grammatical English .. some know it as a trademark of me .. but it keeps me
not to support the image with a bit more story.

Once upon a time in the west ..... a new card game was seen in the Saloon



Xavier Georges from a big box to a smart card game





In Carson City: The Card Game, each player is in charge of developing a city. You and your opponents try to choose the most lucrative parcels of land and buildings, then place these parcels and buildings wisely so as to make your city as prosperous as possible.






You can also win the support and gain the help of the most influential people in the city.


Players have their own symbol on their desk of cards


Influential people

Do not ignore your opponents as they will try to make the best moves in your stead, with a trick-taking mechanism determining who goes first in each round.




Playing for more influence..

The Sunny Valley of Carson City

A nice card game with a cunning bidding system with an interactive structure for the cities that are being built
The different buildings give you as a player the possibility to creatively build your own western city.
The different character offers the possibility to put things more to your hand and influence the bids.
Beforehand it is good to know which cards are invading.
Do not let your opponents take it too easily because certain cards can give a lot of bonus points.
It can be played smoothly miss you well anticipates the cards that you want to grab from the offer.
The symbols work clearly and artwork fits nicely into the atmosphere of the western theme.

Altiplano, a bag-building game along the lines of Orléans set in the South American highlands of the Andes — the Altiplano — is not a simple game, presenting players with new challenges time and again.

There are various ways to reach the goal, so the game remains appealing to try out new options and strategies, but success or failure also depends on whether your opponents let you do as you like or thwart the strategy you are pursuing.


Altiplano

The competition for the individual types of goods is considerable — as is the fun in snatching a coveted extension card from under another player's nose!



At the start of the game, players have access only to certain resources and goods, due to the different role tiles that each player receives that provide them. At the market, however, a player can acquire additional production sites that give new options. The numerous goods — such as fish, alpaca, cacao, silver, or corn — all have their own characteristics and places where they can be used. Whereas silver makes you rich, fish can be exchanged for other goods, and alpaca give you wool that you can then make into cloth.

Aside from building up an effective production, you must deliver the right goods at the right time, develop the road in good time, and store your goods cleverly enough to fill the most valuable rows with them. Often, a good warehouseperson is more relevant in the end than the best producer.

A Small visual overview of a lovely family game




Escape from the island of Captain Goldfish !!

To play the match-and-memory game Memoarrr!, 2 to 4 players need the power of recollection and the luck of pirates. Only then can they make their escape from the island of Captain Goldfish, their pockets lined with rubies, before the lava swallows them up.


Memoarrr - Overview



In turn order, players reveal locations that are connected via the animal or the landscape to the most recently revealed location. If someone reveals a location without any connection, that player is out of the round. The last remaining pirate grabs one of the valuable treasures. Then, all revealed locations are turned face down before the search can start afresh.



As the cards do not change position during a game, players collect more and more information each round, enabling them to reveal new connections — but sometimes a little bit of luck is all it takes to get that treasure.



For advanced players, each animal comes with an additional special action that is triggered when a connected location is revealed — and they make Memoarrr! even more exciting and fun to play.
