I'd like to see this one come back. With all the reprints that have been announced I don't think it's impossible to hope it might be included later

#13 Macao is a solid Feld that I can teach and has some clever mechanics that make it enjoyable. It's also a little hard to find so this definitely makes it a keeper.

Zooloretto:TDG 2p x1

Tons of ostriches we have,
for little kids to peep
Oh shit, we got another one
just toss it on the heap

They may not tell you when in school
what zookeepers must do
but heaps of deadish animals
are keeping up a zoo

But I still won, despite my heaps
by getting enough coin
to make osha and peta blink
corruption is my quoin

Galaxy Rebellion 3p x1

The least thematic game I've played
in this life or the next
Knizia doesn't give a hoot
'bout flavouring with text
A decent game, but nothing great
Dice chucking can't ameliorate
how bland it was to federate
I won, and was perplexed

Round House 3p ww x1

A rondel made by Taiwanese
it plays with gentle, subtle ease
and has a nifty worship board
where breadcrumb placement's neatly scored

But Megan was not quite enthused
she deemed it good but then abused
the loosey goosey rondel state
"not tight enough!" she said, irate

My biggest issue with the game,
and you might find the very same,
Is that, though named the house of round
Is Patrick Swayze can't be found

Lost Legends 3p x1

Me and Sharon melee'd demons
biceps bulging like a seaman's
slashing wildly, smooshing skulls
None could match our monster culls

But Emily with dainty arrows
aimed from safe behind the barrows
picked off monsters one by one
and prudently, quite safely, won

Energy Empire 4p x1

Oh custom dice, my panacea
Help me power up poor Gaea
with this oil I've amassed
No don't cover her with sludge!
Through the muck I failed to trudge
Thus I came in 2nd last

Dadaocheng 4p x1

First time I played event cards in a non-sequential order
and even though I played the game a yellow cubic hoarder
and shipped a million goods,
I lost to those who mansion built,
I cried all over milk tea spilt
for this was all their first time in the Taiwan neighborhoods

Mission Red Planet 6p ww x1

Inoffensive steampunk dross
who won? I couldn't really give a toss

Macao 3p ww x1

I was a golden god that night
drafting like a man possessed
I kept the wall race nice and tight
and synergies I coalesced
But when we totted up the score
Past my nose, did Megan soar
Macao is harsh, and not quite fair
but always, always, debonair

Isle of Sky 3p x1

the score cards were a fun array
wit many boats
and tiny moats
I slaughtered all, that famous day

We just gave Macao our first try on Sunday. It played very smoothly. The dice and wind rose for action selection is very clever. We enjoyed the game and my wife edged me out(she is on a winning streak of late).

Played four times but it was very dark in the basement while renovations were going on upstairs. I don't think I have the right feel for it yet. Cool windrose.

You have to plan ahead with this one and there's a definite push your luck aspect to the game. Shipping is more valuable than expected. Collecting and blocking in the town is more difficult than it seems. In other words, I think it has a good balance. Tense game, though, especially near the end.

#33 MACAO - One of Stefan Feld's earlier and more punishing unforgiving games when you fail to plan well. Players will use two dice from a community pool to take action cubes of the dice colors, to play cards into their tableau, move their ship to trade goods, and take territory on the board. This game contains over 300 tiny cubes in various colors and has hobbit sized cards. Not reccommended for players who have sausage fingers. Right BrawlingBrothers?

Game #10

Times on list: 5
Prev: 6
Highest: 5
Total Plays: 29
2016 Plays: 1
Year published: 2009

What I said in previous years:
I have made my love of Macao no secret on the forums and geeklists of BGG, loudly declaring my fondness as often as possible.

There are higher rated Feld games but I hold Macao above them because:

1: I love super turns. I mentioned this in Castles of Burgundy, which also features super turns, but the super turn you can pull off in Macao make any from CoB pale in comparison.

2: Many complain about the luck in Macao. I think most people who lodge this complaint play it once or twice and don't fare well with the dice. However, familiarity with the game will uncover the many ways you can speculate the dice colors in your game. You can look ahead to office cards as well as play common colors together. You can also see what city quarters you will want to buy. It just feels great when your color speculations pay off in this game and again familiarity pays off here, so the replay value you get from playing well due to this familiarity keeps this one coming back to the table.

#3: Engine building. Once you get a head of steam in Macao, you can do some really amazing things combining your card affects. The sheer variety of these cards and the combinations you can make with them again contribute to an already over the top replay value.

#4: Final scoring is always close making Macao tense to the very last moment.

In 2013 I finally stepped up and wrote a full review of Macao.

I will let that review stand as my thoughts on the game if anyone is interested.

Macao continues to draw steady play on my table with 4 plays in 2014. If I recall, I lost all 4 as I have found that Macao is more fun if you press your luck to the breaking point and take a bunch of hard to complete cards. So far, it hasn't quite clicked, but I am hopeful my next game the stars will align and I will have a break out game.

What I say now:
Only 2 plays in 2015 and 1 play in 2016. A crying shame for Feld's best design. Will look to get this to the table more in 2016, possibly as a 2er with my wife.

#3

Picked this game up on a whim in a trade knowing little about it, except that it was Stefan Feld. However, fell in love halfway through my first play and it shot to a '10' shortly thereafter. The long-term planning and then short-term tactics to deal with it are amazing. It's painful in all the right ways. When I first rated this game, I said it was my favorite Feld (even after having played The Castles of Burgundy). However, after more plays of The Castles of Burgundy, I'm giving that the edge, but its VERY close.
