Great new thread Decar!

I went through my old reviews to see if anything changed and for the most part the answer is no.  I do like Imhotep a bit more, but that is about it.  Also, my early reviews only contained pros and cons and weren't very good :-[.  Maybe I will rewrite them. 

Jungleboy and/or I should pull our info out of the "Other tile laying games" thread and properly review KingDomino, Cacao, and Isle of Skye.

Sounds like a great idea. If you want to post separate reviews I can add a link here.  It's also a good way for people to follow foe new reviews people post, if they're interested!

Very good idea, Decar!

I think, I will post something about The Great Zimbabwe soon. A great thinky game, considered "heavy", but with a very simple ruleset. Played it 3 times so far and really love it! Also, it got a reprint last autumn, which is already out of print at the publisher's site, but for now not terrible hard to find online for reasonable prices, so I should hurry up with this one, because it gets pointless, once it's not easy available any more.

Thanks both, we've got a wealth of boardgaming experience here at Carcassonne Central.  I hope by collating some of our reviews others joining the site can see what we're all about  :(y) :(y)

I say go for it. If I only posted stuff that anyone was interested in reading my post count would be much much lower! :D

Further to this, I'd just like to point out that I've just posted my review of Tsuro. Enjoy!
