Just deep enough; excellent 'screw your neighbor' factor
December 25, 2002

Too many games these days are just too deep or complicated for play at the end of a workday. This is just the right mix. The Chieftain who walks around assessing penalties provides a great screw factor. The tension between building as the play develops and trying to position your pieces for a favorable endgame (one last walk around EVERY space) requires short and long term planning. Could the game bog down without a time limit per move? Perhaps, but actually most times there aren't too many choices to slow the game down. Excellent scoring system overall; the endgame allows tension to remain until the last penalty is assessed. Deserving of best abstract game!

Simple to learn and yet surprisingly deep play
October 06, 2002

I have always enjoyed games with building blocks based on polyominoes like quintillions by Kadon. This one is very straightforward to learn and yet provides solid depth for strategy.

So far, I have only tried the game with two players. Planning ahead is critical. Sometimes it is better to take a penalty or two so that you can avoid having to play a piece on a higher level. Also, moving the chieftan so that you have a better advantage two plays down the road, adds to the planning. I am looking forward to the extra complexity three or four players will add to the game.

If you like games that require spatial skills, prefer faster paced over slow and methodical, then Pueblo is the game for you!

 
 
 
 
 
If you like Torres...
August 29, 2002

this one is sure to please. Kiesling and Kramer prove again that complex strategies can be built on a foundation a few simple rules. Large pieces, evocative artwork and the clever mechanics of where to move the chieftain and how best to hide your pieces in a 3-D environment make for a rewarding game that clocks in at under an hour. Enjoy.
