Perplexing
August 02, 1999

Colorado County borrows elements from Euphrat & Tigris, in gaining influence on a board, and Ra, in its peculiar scoring. However, it doesn't seem to share the excitement of either of those two games.

The mechanics of the game are simple enough. You place tokens onto the map grid based on patterns on cards, which the players bid for. How this relates to the supposed theme of cowboys settling a piece of virgin land I never could work out.

Players get points for having control of the edges of the map, for controlling lakes (moveable, so you can have a new layout each time) and for having blobs of contiguous tokens.

Although the game is very pretty to look at and the rules seem to hold together (with a few ambiguities), I always had the feeling that I wasn't at all in control of the game. My opinion of Colorado County is that it is eye candy, not brain candy.
