Century: Golem Edition playmat is awesome

My brother in law got us a late Christmas gift - the neoprene playmat for Century: Golem Edition! We love this game, and have played it with him on a couple of occasions as well, so this was an awesome gift. It really makes the game feel fancy! Moving cards around and picking them up is so satisfying using the playmat!

Wow I had no idea it was the same as spice road!

And dang I was going to ask you about the splendor comparison... I have Splendor but I wouldn’t him want to get to similar of a game... although it does look different enough!

FWIW from what I've seen, the majority of people who compare this and Splendor actually like this one a little better. Although yeah if I had one I don't know if I'd be too anxious to buy the other either haha.

That’s so nice! High quality playmats for games are fun.  I’ve never played CG, what’s it like?

Well it's the exact same game as Century: Spice Road, just with a different theme. A bit of an engine/combo builder that's easy to learn but still thinky enough to be fun for pretty much everyone. Basically you're turning crystals into other crystals to use them to buy points. I've seen it compared favorably to Splendor, which I've never played.

Nice, I can imagine how it would up the experience! I really need to get this out at some point at introduce it to my wife but just not sure how she'll like it haha

TBH there hasn't been a person we've introduced it to so far that hasn't liked it. It's easy to learn, and very satisfying to play. It's competitive but not cutthroat, which makes it perfect for us.

Completely agree. That is my experience as well.
