Why It's On The List
  • A clever puzzle of a game that incorporates deck-building, dice placement, and a nicely thought-out series of mini-expansions in the base game box.
Tips & Tricks:
  • Sequencing your card purchases is an important skill... working so that you group nobles together, for example, makes it much easier to spin through your deck.
  • It isn't necessary to throw in every mini-expansion on your first play to prove your "gamer cred" - the base game is enjoyable on its own merits.
  • There is an expansion coming (Open Doors)... and I'm ready for it to show up already!
  • My younger son refers to Taverns as "gamer Quacks"... not sure I completely agree, but I see where he's coming from.
  • This is the first of two games designed by Wolfgang Warsch on the countdown. (I don't think you'll have a difficult time figuring out the other one.)
