Our group really liked this as a quick abstract that pretty much everyone can play. The randomness of the tiles allows more experienced players to have fun with less. It’s not terribly deep, but delivers exactly the game experience that the box describes. Its harder to find (for me anyway) than Tsuro, but well worth it.

The components are good, but not amazingly over the top. The rules are very clear and well written, always a nice bonus. The hex board adds a new level of play compared to similar games in this category.

Yes, this game is pretty simple, and there are a lot of tile games out there. However, this one really gets it right in a fun, approachable way. The action icons fix the problem of only having the edges matter that is found in most tile games. The theme is fun and allows for quick and easy visual reference to the play area. It’s a great gateway game and has a middle ground that gamers and non-gamers alike will appreciate!

When I was first introduced to this game by my in-laws, I really didn’t think that I would like it. It seemed that it would be WAY too long for the amount of player interaction that it boasted. A dozen or more games later and I am glad I was wrong. I can’t quite say what it is that makes me want to play yet another round. The scoring is unique, and I love building my city. The expansions in the big box certainly offer different styles of play, though some are rarely used (love using encampments). It definitely has that ‘Euro’ feel and is well worth the time invested.

My wife and I find ourselves playing this often whenever we have 20 minutes to kill. The setup is a breeze and the gameplay simple. It’s certainly not a deep game, and does not try to be, but the theme is fun and I find it a wonderful game that we can play while discussing the events of the day.

The basic goal is to fund archeological expeditions and acquire enough points both to beat your opponent but also to satisfy any investors you may have on a particular expedition. The greater the risk, the greater the reward.
