#74: Keltis: Der Weg der Steine Mitbringspiel (Mark's 100 - 2014)

Keltis: Der Weg der Steine

Mark's Ranking
  • 2014: 74th
  • 2012: 56th
  • 2010: 60th
  • 2005: prior to publication
  • rank: 1620
  • rating: 6.47
Print Status
  • in print - easiest to get through (6 Euros!)
Why It's On The List
  • The most straightforward of the Lost Cities/Keltis family - and incredibly portable.
Tips & Tricks:
    • When playing with 3 or 4 players, don't start lines in all five colors.
    • It's easy to forget about blarney stones in your first game - don't. The penalty for going short on them is steep.
    • In German, the name means "the way of the stones." The "Mitbringspiel" is a rough equivalent of our "travel games" - it literally means "bring with game".
    • It's not that I dislike Keltis or Lost Cities: The Board Game... it's just that I like this one so much better.
