First game with Carcassonne The Discovery
« on: August 09, 2015, 08:09:44 AM »
I was a little bit reluctant about the discovery...
I don't like the colours too faded of the tiles, the graphic in general and the meeples that looks like phantoms (I think they would be a sort of ship's boys)
Then I find this game in italian on eBay for only 10€ (in the box there were also the original cardboard for the tiles, so one more point from a collector like me), so I buy it!
And today I mare the first game!
Well... Simple, not really long and funny!
At the beginning it was a game where my opponent and me player totally alone, without any interaction between us, then, when the map became more big, it was more competitive and strategica!
So... Was a nice game!

I would describe Discovery as the most friendly version of Carcassonne. It is not necessary to compete with someone, as all participants will get their points and you can't trap anyone (only reduce some points). So, yes, nice spin-off :)

You may be disappointed there Halfling. Wayland says its available to order; which means they dont have it in stock an they have to order it from the supplier. As far as i know discovery/newlands hasnt been in print for a while. I did pick it up at a reasonable price afew months ago. If you have problems I'll let you know where it was :)
