Those pesky Greenskins have pillaged us for the last time! His Majesty has had it up to here with them! He's decreed that a new walled castle be built to protect our fertile valley. Thus, the king has called upon you, the greatest architects of the realm, to complete this task. The architect who constructs the most buildings and employs the most workers will win the coveted key to the castle, and gain the title of "Castellan of Belfort"!

Elves, dwarves, and gnomes, plus a whole lot of gaming goodness
May 30, 2012

Belfort is a 2011 release from Tasty Minstrel Games, and could well prove to be their most successful strategy game yet. It's a worker-placement driven euro with resource management that is primarily about area control. It's strength is that it takes familiar euro mechanics but integrates them in a new way. What's more, it adds a somewhat unusual (for a euro) fantasy theme.

The basic concept of this game for 2-5 players is that you're competing against other players in an effort to use a workforce of elves, dwarves and gnomes to build the city of Belfort. You'll need to organize your work force, gather resources, stake out building sites within the city confines - all while your competitors are doing everything they can to ensure that they succeed and you fail in your efforts to build this new and beautiful city. But the buildings you create will give you small bonuses, and can you use these to your advantage?

Belfort is a highly polished product in every respect: artwork, components, theme, mechanics, humour, rules. Everything shows evidence of careful play-testing and balance, and it's clear that this game has been a labour of love that has benefited from the hard work of designers, developers, play-testers, publisher, and artist. It sure is no ordinary worker placement game, and is set to make quite a splash over the next year. There is the potential for some downtime and a longer game with the full complement of five players (especially AP types), but aside from that this game gets pretty much everything right. Very impressive game!
