Merchants and Marauders

Post by Hurricane on Sun Jan 09, 2011 2:47 pm

I got this game for Christmas. Now, I am partial to pirates games. However, this game is great! I've played it 4 times and I highly recommend it! If anyone is interested they can find some in depth reviews here

Actually, I wasn't keen.

Maybe it was the group I played with, but down time between turns was huge.

One of my buddies got it for the holidays and it is a great game. It might have been your group limey, even on our first game (between two players) the turns where around 2 minutes with slightly longer turns for combat. The rules are fairly straight forward, but I can see if you have a couple of slow pokes in the group how frustrating it can be.

We were playing with 4 players, and it really was a problem.

I've only played with 3 people and it went really smooth. Even better after a couple of games.

I will give this one a look if it has combat. One person in our gaming group
is eager to play any game that has some violence in it.

Lately I have been playing Dominion. That is a great game.

I played this game twice now, the first time with people who played already and the second time with newbies.

I must say I really enjoyed both times and would love to be able to have a game with several players who already know all the rules and have a few games under their belt already.
