Ora et Labora
Staycation day without the kid means food, foolin around and a long board game with the missus. Was there ever a finer economy game? So good. So challenging. She’s deadly when the economies get elaborate enough: kicked my butt 394-375.
It’s like Agricola + migraine – the guilt of letting your family go hungry. Fun! For certain values of fun.

I don’t have this, but I like it a lot. I feel Caverna and le Havre and fields of arle got rid of the starvation dread, but OeL is just really neat and smart. Have you tried glass road?
I haven’t played this for two years. Miss it!
Paolo Greco I feel like I have enough Uwe games! Between this and Ag I’m not sure how many other ways I need to play this type of game.
Mischa Krilov right? It’s been a year for us. When I opened the box I saw that we had carefully tackle-boxed everything. I nearly wept.
Paul Beakley I’ll make you weep: I haven’t cracked the shrink on mine.
Glass road is completely unlike other Rosenbergs.
I do like Le Havre. But it fired Agricola for me.
Glass Road: well huh! Might have a look at it. My collection trends confrontational and thematically my wife doesn’t love that. I was trying to cajole her into Empires: Age of Discovery last night with “but it’s worker placement!” She wasn’t having any of it.
Mischa Krilov you monster.
It’s not even a worker placement game. 🙂
The designer says otherwise in the rulebook. :-\
I can’t imagine why. :7
I was under the wrong impression that you were discussing the manual of glass road. Sorry. I’m answering on topic on the correct thread.
