ⓢ ⓗ ⓔ ⓛ ⓕ 2️⃣1️⃣ is one with a lot of potential greatness. 4 out of the 4 titles are about exploring and utilising the land & resources. of course a common setting in our beloved board game hobby.
any potentials here or not? ✅ or ❌ ▪︎ montana from @whitegoblingames is a fun and light exploring and resource conversion game where you race to be the best at using your workers, building and grow your settlement. 🐮
▪︎ raccoon tycoon by @forbiddengms is a anamorphic representation of some real work tycoon stuff! make the best out of your own resources, turn them into more valuable resources and turn those in valuable tracks, grounds or just more money! the auction is a fun one here and one worth exploring. and the art is 🤩
▪︎ auztralia is just such a weird experience. a train game with a chtulhu sauce on top it. excellent euro meets thematic game by @strongholdgames
▪︎ railroad revolution by admittedly one our favorite publisher's @whatsyourgame is a great game simulation of the 19th century train rush! i do own the @pegasusspiele 🔄

2p clans of caledonia with my bf tonight 🐄🐑 what we thought would be a 1.5h game turned into a 3h ap fest 😅 he won as usual, 202-176 (we made an error in the contract scoring in the photo)
since i always seem to be short on money in resource management games, i employed lots of workers to build up my cash reserve, which i then used to buy much-needed goods to fulfil orders. my boyfriend was more strapped for cash than i was (a shocking first 🙈), especially since he went for more resources early on to fulfil the extra orders that clan buchanan gave him.
i love the economic aspects of the game, especially the buy/sell market—it adds lots of tactical play in a very strategic game. the tobacco/cotton/sugarcane scoring was also thematic and meant that i was constantly looking at what goods my bf had so that i could lower their end-game value. these features really added to the ap though because of the constant maths calculations i was redoing, on top of every other way to score points—there are sooo many options on your turn!
it’s a good 2p game—the map felt tight and still had lots of interaction. like all multiplayer games though, the game loses some of its potential at 2p e.g neither of us built much grain or whisky, and the market was quite static for certain goods, which detracts from the interesting tactical gameplay.
other than that, i think the only flaw imo is that the game felt more like maths homework at times than entertainment 😂 i can see this game becoming an 8.5-9 for me but i’ll have to play it more to see if it becomes less overwhelming over time.

Clans of caledonia:
so awesome! i’ve played two games so far[spoiler: i lost both] 2p and 4p, i lost by 2 points on my birthday 😢. i think it played really well with both counts with no noticeable downtime between turns. going to add in the clans in future games, as we wanted to get the mechanics down first.
it’s got a nice engine building which ramps up and money is critical, but we loved the market and fluctuating prices. this hit all the right notes for me and i can’t wait to play again and recommend checking it out if you haven’t.
