El Grande for the Germanically-challenged!
January 12, 1999

This is just a set of cards (not a complete game), but what a wonderful set! El Grande is one of the best examples of board gaming, and has stayed strong with two excellent expansions. These cards are used in place of the German cards for those who have the German edition of the game but prefer to play in English.

The cards are smaller than their German equivalents, which makes them a little harder to read from across the table. If you play El Grande like we do, though, and read each of the cards aloud before the round begins then this doesn't matter much. The artwork from the original game is kept, making the cards look perfectly natural next to the board. If you own the German version of El Grande, these cards are a great asset. Now we can only hope that Rio Grande will publish the expansions in English-language format as well.
