This one is begging for a re-release
December 11, 2003

There is no doubt about it - out of my collection of nearly 100 board games, this one is among my all-time favorites. Unfortunately the basic game is only for 4 players, but the expansions take care of that problem.

Borderlands is somewhat like the Settlers of Catan, with the territories, resource development and so on, but when you add the cutthroat element, the negotiations and the inevitable backstabbing, you get an absolutely wonderful game...provided of course that the players are not put off by a little bit of backstabbing.

Go and buy this one...or wait and hope that someone, somewhere will re-release it.

Long Lost Treasure
July 31, 2003

This was a great game. Too bad I only played the 'origanal' tabletop version once. But for over 15 years I have been playing the computer version, 'Lords of Conquest' on my old tired, but still working, Commodore 64. The computer versions incorperates the expansions (ships, etc.) and also has a nice map generator and editor so you can make unlimited maps to enjoy. Though, the computer gets really old to play against after awhile. (You can only play against one computer player, or up to 4 total human players.) I would love to once again play this on the tabletop.

Much Better Than Settlers of Catan
November 18, 2002

True to form that Eon games were before their time, this came out over 10 years before Settlers of Catan. SoC is a watered down version of Borderlands, lacking the cutthroat nature and negotiations involved. Borderlands is also 100% pure strategy. All the possibilities are before your eyes and it's up to you to trade and conquor your way to victory. It also fits other criteria of an excellent game ... easy to learn, fits on a regular table, and plays in about 2-3 hours.
