4p castles of burgundy 🏰 cob was my first non-gateway game and i remember being overwhelmed by all the choices i had from the die modifiers, so it was good to revisit it after 9 months.
one player had an insane combo where she grabbed all 6 sheep tiles and got 96 points from it 😂 2 of us already had filled up most of our animal spaces and couldn’t stop her lol. needless to say, she won and i came 3rd, 274-215-208-201.
i like it a lot more than before. it’s not my favourite feld probably because it’s a lot more tactical than i expected, but that might be because we had 4 players (wouldn’t recommend this player count, it took us 3 hours 😬). i also like my midweight euros to be more tense and stressful than this.
that being said, it was still a really fun game (dice and point salad, what more do you need in a game 😂). it also seems very balanced other than animals seeming a little stronger than the rest, but the runaway leader in this game was the players’ faults and not the game imo.
i’ll probably buy an old copy once everyone starts selling it when the deluxe version comes out 😁
Our current collection! our shelf was getting a bit out of control so we decided to tidy it up a bit!
