Go West

Quick look by Moritz Eggert

The basic mechanics look interesting when reading the rules, but sadly the game play didn't work as well for me. In essence this is a game where ¾ (in a 4 player game) of the VP's you make are decided by the other players. They might score when you have quite a few VP's waiting, or they might score when you have none. No strategic planning can ever give you better chances, but part of the fun in gaming is finding or contemplating ways to raise your chances of winning. Therefore this game has a serious basic problem for me. Having said that it's far from being a bad game, and if one is a fan of Colovini (like some other geeks on the rating list) you might enjoy it.
