Carthago was an Origins pickup for me last year. I enjoy the game, but it doesn't do anything that's really new. It's a good package of mechanisms, but won't blow you a way. I gave it 4 pegs.

It clearly didn't make the splash they wanted, since they were selling copies for $10 with any purchase at Origins this year.

Carthago was an Origins pick up for me last year. It's a great game that comes in. a small package. Quick play time, solid interaction and just enough a veneer of theme that I am drawn in. Every time I have played it, I want to make it part of the regular rotation.

I gave it a 4 last year, a good game that isn't a GREAT one. It's essentially a multi use card game with since action selection that is engaging for its tightness of gameplay. It doesn't really stand out among the rules of last year or even among Capstone's best. But it is still better than average and worth the value I paid for it.

I demoed Carthago at Origins last year. I was distinctly disappointed in it... I love multi-use cards and I was expecting to like the game more than I did. I can't explain exactly what it was about the game that I found off-putting, but after the demo I had no desire to play a full game.

I had to look up Carthago to find out what it even looked like, and immediately thought Carthago looks like it's a game for people who wonder what the woman on the cover of Concordia's brother is up to. Multi-use cards, being a merchant on the mediterranean for the six thousandth time, seems very "meh". At least the woman on Concordia has wine. I'm sure it's a fine game, but it makes me feel like we are just making games for the sake of making games when I see titles like this.

I don't usually read these until after our episode releases, but I agree the exclusion of this comment from the show is a TRAVESTY!
