I didn't know what to do with my UberBadge, so I left it as a GeekBadge.

Thanks for the information. I've enjoyed all of Stefan Feld's recent games, including Macao, so I'm quite looking forward to this one.

Yeah, it appears G K is in the minority about that opinion of Macao. That's fine: I'm just making a statistical statement. meeple

Thanks for the overview! Looks like I'll have to save up....

I am so glad to hear someone else was disappointed by Macao. A nearly great game marred by some horrendous design choices that can only come from too little playtesting. The flaws pretty much ruin it for our group. Awful, contradictory statements on the cards and writing so small I want to cry.

This game sounds a bity easier to follow...

I'm interested in which design choices you refer to when you say "horrendous." I'm curious, is all.

I would also be curious to know what design choices Eric found horrendous in Macao. (A curious critique for someone who apparently rejects intelligent design ).

Personally, I love Macao- for me its a perfect blend of Euro boardgaming goodness with a dab of CCG-combo goodness sprinkled on. My one critique would be the spelling of "exersize" on one of the cards. Would you like your McDonald's value meal "exersized?"- purged of transfats I guess.

Anyhow, I think Feld is one of the most underrated designers around. His last three Alea games have all been a hit with me and this Burgandy game looks super exersized awesome to me.
