Have had a long time interest in the 1745 Jacobite rebellion from a figure gaming point of view so this game was a dream come true. Dungeoneer is better. Screwage factor is fun at first, but game wears thin after a while.

Researching still... Try using the pieces (and adding two more counters) for a game of Realm. Rules couldnt be simpler: put 4 of your pieces in a row but never have 3 of your pieces in a row. It's difficult to avoid comparisons to Realm, Sly's older brother. That's it ! Has that just-one-more-time quality that makes me play it several times in a row once it comes out.
Interesting abstract. Not sure yet. The Rebellion books have lush backgrounds to the images, rather than plain white page in the background, making them a delight to see. The board is a 3 but I suspect game will be better.
Interesting game.

Description A new and exciting cricket game that reproduces team and individual scoring as found in top level cricket. It circles around Human Rights abuses. The player represents the commandos, and the game has rules governing the reaction of the German defenders.
Comments
Want level: medium. Not quite as accessible as some others and my friends like Scattergories more.
Guess the word. Plays] (Several pre-Geek plays with family) "Describe without using the word game", in a Taboo style, to guess as many as you can each turn against the clock.
Take Pictionary, remove the drawing element, replace with verbal description. Helps if you know your playing partner very well, too.

Sounds interesting. The mechanic works well and, while it's not terribly deep, it plays very quickly.
One of my favourite quad games. An excellent Wurzburg about the red attack in Central Europe !
1 of 4 I wish to own to have 2 playsets for two people. What a Great Time!

All of the best ideas in the Runebound series are used here.

Description This Monopoly clone is themed with Canadian-based Tim Horton's "coffee and bake shops". Players buy and sell the restaurant's most popular items. Your goal is to occupy as large an area as possible on the game board using the blocks that you receive as rewards for making accurate guesses. The other side is an empty board with pictures around the crossword puzzle and the children will have to figure out where to put those words. Ace of Aces: Powerhouse Series. Other stones captured "in-between" are simply removed.
Comments
A game of who can find who ,,, first..
Would love to have the smaller boxed edition. However, I'm giving it a lower rating and will probably not raise my rating or play it again until one rule is fixed: the influence marker bidding at the end is confusing and probably wrong.

New ships being developed as well as terrain. However, multiple attacks can occur on enemy ships at the same time and you may destroy more than one ship per "move". Side one gives full instructions and an explanation of how to set up the playing pieces, how they move and why.
Comments
Feels a bit like multiplayer Battle Line. I enjoy this game (even just for two players) more than Battleline as there seems to be a bit more depth; the decisions are not as obvious.
Very slow paced game. Next time I will try it with 4 players...

Description Le Marché de Samarkand is a game of Dutch bids, a bid where the salesman leaves a maximum price and comes down then until a buyer stops the process. Players place and move stones representing various sizes of volcanoes on the board, attempting to create scoring formations.
Comments
Used toi play this version exclusively, to at least allow some choices to be made. I bought this game when I was 10 years old and I remember the jingle to this day.
I received this game at a Christmas party back in the 70s from my fathers employer. Being a child at the time, the game didn't appeal to me so I put it away and kept it all of these years. You can usually pick it up really cheap in a second hand store and it's worth it.
More decisions than original Yahtzee due to playing three separate games of Yahtzee simultaneously, with x1, x2, x3 multipliers.

Description A "Colour Mixing" Game for up to Four Players. The aim of the game is to pick up metal ball bearings from the side of the board with your 'magnet' plane, then try and fly the plane across the plastic covering (the plane on top of the plastic, the ball hanging below it) and aim to drop the bomb onto one of the targets below. If the corresponding car is at the end of another player's train, the car is removed from the opponent's train and placed on the player's track. A very fast, fun game for the whole family - up to 8 players!
Comments
Used to be fun little filler that plays to completion in 10-15 minutes and can play a fair number of people. Good to play with kids. The problems with it were: - the randomness of the scoring rounds: they score cards are shuffled into various parts of the deck (Union Pacific style) so you never know exactly when they're coming up.
Two plays, once with four and once with six.
