I enjoyed Lowenherz sufficiently to buy this remake without playing it first (something I try to avoid). Mike, Vitas, Sara and I played it on the day I bought it, and enjoyed it thoroughly. In fact, three of us played it again a few nights later at SOG. Everyone that I've played it with so far has asked to play it again, which is a good sign.
It doesn't have the bidding mechanic of the original, but there are still plenty of choices to make. It does still have the wild scoring swings, but scoring is less fiddly (no more chart lookups) and easier to validate mid-game.
I look forward to playing this game, and will enjoy introducing it to others.
Computer Games played: Zax
PS2 Games played: Ratchet and Clank II: Going commando. Finished it the first time after 30 hours, finished it again in 15 hours. There's still some interesting gameplay left.
Wow! Lots of gaming time this month. Unity games contributed as well as playing games at home with my sister almost every night (this also explains the recent jump in Switch playing). Despite her insistence that she's no good at strategy games, she holds her own, beating 4 of us at Oasis just last night.
