Played once, the very essence of what I don't enjoy. Negotiating and backstabbery for the win.

Kids of Catan

No Review Title

by brdgamz

I understand this is a kids game, but it offers no meaningful decisions. The Hatchimals boardgame is a kids game and it offers a few. There is no remote similarity to Catan.

Maracaibo

Played solo twice. A fiddly, point-salad sandbox with a disproportionate amount of output randomness. I like maneuvering around the loop but the actions feel disconnected. Felt like work.

Railways of Nippon

No Review Title

by brdgamz

No game has as much going for it as Railways (name your flavor)! It refined what Age of Steam had into something incredible. It has the right mix of what I feel makes a great game: it necessitates an adaptive strategy, relies heavily on tactics and timing your moves against your opponents is paramount. Genius design!

by brdgamz

If your vine and order cards don't harmonize you're going to have a overcoming it. It's fun and a pleasant enough theme, but as you have no control over what you draw, it's a big ask.

I enjoy the core mechanism after more than a dozen plays. The board and components are functional, but the art and graphic design could have been better.

Chutes and Ladders

No Review Title

by brdgamz

Not worth purchasing for any price even to play with small kids. The game runs long and is painful to endure. The only opportunity provided is adding your own house rules to introduce some decision to the game.

Hungry Hungry Hippos

No Review Title

by brdgamz

Only slightly better than Chutes and Ladders. Offers a novelty for kids who will play it a few times before becoming bored with it. At least it's short.

12/12/2020

Let's Go Fishin'

No Review Title

by brdgamz

Slightly better than Hungry Hungry Hippos because where Hippos is almost totally random (just tap the button as fast as possible) there is room to improve one's dexterity in this game. There is some novelty for kids but, it will become old and forgotten quickly.

12/12/2020

by brdgamz

Good intro game for a 3yo. This game is far and away better than the likes of Chutes and Ladders, Let's Go Fishing, and Hungry Hungry Hippos. It offers the lowest level on the totem pole to play something interesting with a 3yo. Forget the other games I mention: not worth your time.

Scythe is a fun, heads-down race with marks of greatness. Although a conspicuous lack of player interaction and rote faction openings are present, it's got a spark.
