Title: Re: Spirit Games Wednesday Night - 2012
Post by: Zarniwoop

30th May 2012
Tonight we played The Castles of Burgundy, this was my first play of this, with Richard providing the rules explanation. This components for this game are nice, there being plenty of tiles and double sided playing boards with a few extras so there is plenty of options for varied play in future. The suggestion for the first game is every player should use one of the boards sides with a number 1 on it. The boards are a little thin and the colour difference between tiles can be hard in poor light but overall the quality is not that bad. The game plays over five rounds with players rolling 2 dice, the first player rolls an extra white dice which determines where the good for that turn will go. In their turn players can use their dice in the following ways:
  • use the number to collect a tile from the corresponding depot into one of the holding spaces on the board
  • Add a tile from their holding area onto their building area (has to match the die number, be adjacent to another tile and be the only building of that type in that region
  • Sell goods matching the die number gaining vp
  • Or spending a die to gain Workers (used to modify die results +/-1)
Placing certain tiles in your build area allows for additional actions or bonuses. Once per turn players can elect to buy special tiles from the centre market. This is a really nice game, whilst it uses dice there are ways to mitigate the randomness of them and there is plenty of choices along the way. A lot of fun to play and will certainly get some more outings in the future.
Final scores were: Andy:147, Caz:174, Paul:179 and Richard:239
