Your collection is incomplete...
October 03, 2004
Your game collection is incomplete without a copy of this game. New England has been a favorite in my gaming group since I got my copy when it was first released in 2003. There are tough decisions to be made and no lead seems safe in this game. Most games tend to be a nail-biter to the end. Great mechanics and nice flow of play make this one a winner.
 
 
 
 
 
Best game design since Acquire, Alan +Aaron's gift to gaming
June 11, 2004

I have alway felt that Acquire was the best multi-player strategy game. I must admit that games such as Tigris & Euphrates and Settlers of Catan have given me some good gaming hours, but Mr. Sackson's boardgame I always saw as a standard to be reached. New England is a simple yet skillful game that is playable, colorful and well produced. Alan Moon has come a long way since the Avalon Hill days. When he teams up with Aaron W. the end results are some of the best in the genre at this time. I was worried that when this game received Games Magazines 'Game of the Year' it would be the kiss of death. Remember Pipeline and Trumpet? This game deserves it's kudos. It will be a mandatory play on the holidays right after a round of Acquire. (Sorry Alan and Aaron, but Sid's masterpiece came first).

 
 
 
 
 
Wonderful Game
March 03, 2004

Terrific design and nice mechanics in this abstract tile-laying game. I bought it in June 2003 without knowing much about it. Man, was I surprised! This has been my 'game of choice' ever since. Very balanced and very little luck involved. Plenty of strategy to go around. This one is well worth the investment.
