I really like all the possibilities. A touch too long if not played reguarly, since it requires a fairly thorough refresher. I keep thinking about how to play differently next time and that's definitely a good sign. So many possible strategy paths and so many tactical decisions. Fantastic!
Just a little too dry for my tastes. Also the somewhat steep learning curve means that an unbalanced table (in terms of varying experience levels with the game) makes the game less rewarding for everyone concerned. I expect that it would be more exciting with a table full of very experienced players.
Corrupt contractors in France, 1289. Place and pay your workers to build the castle, but use extra materials to make a fortune on the side. One of the original worker placement games, still one of the best.
Caylus is an old title, but it has certainly held its own. Despite having helped birth worker placement, Caylus' implementation of the mechanic is still incredibly unique, and unlike anything else on the market. The Bailiff & Provost add a healthy dose of meta-game into this solid Euro, forcing players to constantly jostle for position and plan carefully. The game also manages to shift priorities between the early- and late-game, which encourages players to experiment with and pivot to different strategies in a single session. The complete lack of randomness makes this a must play for the luck averse.
