Adel verpflichtet

Quick look by Moritz Eggert

One of the forerunners of the "German wave", still a good game after all these years, although the theme feels slapped on. The "where am I" card mechanic is interesting but also involves a lot of luck, because your fellow gamers can never really be read fully, and there is always the odd play that benefits a particular player immensely without really being his achievement. The race around the board has some interesting twists, as some spaces advance you less than others, and people falling behind always have a good chance of catching up. Apart of the name that is unpronounceable for every non-German this is really a gem that still has some shine left and is worth checking out not only for nostalgia value.
