So as many of you know I don't own a lot of games and I try to vary my Mechanics, so I'm going to talk about/ask about two (or more if you think) together. I do this because I love games that have Management Mechanics (hand, resource, etc).
The reason I love Hand and Resource Management is because you have to really think about and be smart about how you use everything you have.
Hand Management is really fun because you often have to choose which of the best cards to keep. I also like that it sometimes gives you the option to dump everything you have because it's terrible. #Root shines with hand management with the Riverfolk and Lizard Cult. I love having to decide if I should keep a card, or discard it to affect the Lizard Cult. Like which is more to my benefit.
I also love to manage my resources. To try and look ahead and see what it is I need to really help my game flow and function well. That choice of which do I get now, and which do I hold off on.
For me #Scythe and #Clans of Caledonia sticks out. I love having to think about how to spend my money and get more money in Clans to maximize what I'm doing. And sometimes you have that hard choice at the end of a round on what's going to work out best for me next round, where do I spend my last pounds?
The other thing I like about resource management is it forces me to think a bit ahead.
Ultimately with management in games there is always something to adjust to even if you don't love what you have right now. It really opens it up (for me) to be able to still play, even if it means adjusting my strartegy throughout.
What are you favorite games with management mechanics?
