My latest haul is coming home likely this week or early next week! So, which game should we play first? (There's a limit in the number of characters. Architects = #Architects of the West Kingdom)

I bet you know which game I voted for.

Supporter9 months ago

Architects first, no doubt. 

Owner9 months ago

Looks like it's leaning toward Atlantis, then Clans, and Architects last haha

Supporter9 months ago

Not any more

They are all good choices. I’ll be interested in your thoughts on all of them. 

Supporter9 months ago

I voted for clans, because I want your review.

Will have to try out the solo mode to get the mechanics down before explaining it to my wife :)

Supporter9 months ago

It's a crazy easy solo mode.

Owner9 months ago

Easy in a good or bad way? Do you prefer Viticulture for solo? :D

Supporter9 months ago

I should say it's crazy easy to run not necessarily to "win", you just get to focus on your economy.  I think I may prefer Clans solo.  But I also find Viticultures solo mode crazy easy to run.

Good deal

I voted for Atlantis, but I'd love to see either that or Architects. Who am I kidding, I want to see them all!

I asked my wife tonight and this is her order of interest: Atlantis > Clans > Architects :D

She liked Forbidden Island a lot but just wanted a bit more complexity, so it has potential to be a big hit!

I think her vote should count more than all of ours combined, haha

I am a big fan of the type of game Clans is! It would be a new type of game for her too!

#The Voyages of Marco Polo would be the closest thing for both of us since Clans' market mechanism is inspired by Marco Polo. But it's definitely a new one for us with a blend of different mechanics that I'm interested in!

That is a lot of dice mitigation ya?

Owner9 months ago

Yup, you can re-roll, change die value, and/or "hire" a new dice worker all at an expense of resources (camels).

It will be a different experience with clans for sure! No dice, just good ole strategy!  I am partial to dice manipulation though!

Supporter9 months ago

I'm really curious how clans will go down. 

9 months ago

Same!

Supporter9 months ago

I predict it will be trump viticulture for both of them. 

9 months ago

That is a bold prediction!

go big or go home

xD We'll see!! I could see that happening for me, but as for Anna, it will probably take more than one play for that to have potential (one of the reasons others haven't topped it yet is because we haven't gotten as many plays in on the newer games so she hasn't explored them fully). She also said Root may become #1 for her depending on how future plays turn out, especially with the other factions.

My fingers are crossed.
