Clans of Caledonia is a mid-to-heavy economic game set in 19th-century Scotland. At this time, Scotland made the transition from an agricultural to an industrialized country that heavily relied on trade and export. In the following years, food production increased significantly to feed the population growth. Linen was increasingly substituted by the cheaper cotton and raising sheep was given high importance. More and more distilleries were founded and whisky became the premium alcoholic beverage in Europe. Players represent historic clans with unique abilities and compete to produce, trade and export agricultural goods and of course whisky! The game comes with nine different clans, a modular board with 16 configurations, nine port bonuses and nine round scoring tiles.

Had a play in tabletopia.... very good game! A lot of wood and very thematic game.
Smoothly flowing resource optimization euro that successfully borrows elements from other greats in the genre. Getting your income flow set up quickly is important, but needs to be balanced carefully with contract completion and setup for the last couple of end-of-round bonuses. One of my few complaints is that the components could be a tad bit bigger. Overall a highly satisfying game.
Was expecting to like this more, but after playing a few games, would rather play Terra Mystica or Gaia Project. It is still a very solid game I would play anytime. The solo game is less desirable.Update: I am liking it the more I play it.
A well rounded Euro. I enjoyed the experience, but I didn't feel like it really did much to stand out from every other one. The theme is compelling, but it felt loosely coupled to the mechanics. Ultimately, I think this game will blur together in my memory with every other game in this category.Update: I've played this a lot recently and am bumping it up to an 8. I still agree with most of my assessment above, but I've still been really enjoying it. I think the unique clan powers make it particularly fun - they really vary the experience greatly.
