Game of the Month
June 2009
This game has created something we call the 'Saint Petersburg' effect. The first reaction was not negative, but a little 'doh?'... but in a strange way we became addicted to try out this game again and again to work out new tactics. Because of this 'Wind River' quickly belonged to our most currently played games, and that can't be bad! 'Wind River' is a perfect merge of fitting theme and functioning mechanics. It is quickly explained and not too long. Good planning and second-guessing the other players moves are crucial to winning this game, with a bit of group dynamics added into the mix. We have not been so taken with Argentum games so far, but this game is fully convincing and can be enjoyed as a 'gamer's game' as well as a family game with friends. Bravo!
