Samurai by Reiner Knizia.|

Simple rules and mechanisms so its easy to teach but still big choices to be made.
Scales well from 2-4 players.
Other than smaller card games and Carcassonne, it is definitely my most played game.
Made in 1998 but doesn't feel old to me. A classic for sure.

It's recent reprints are out of print again. Hoping it gets picked up for another run.

Great idea. And I'd never really thought about re-purposing expansions with other base games.
But now that I think of it I'm sure there's a few that would work just fine!

I like the UI and the way it plays.
I have only tried single player at this point.

The little touches like colored flags going up to represent who's city it was.
The v2.0 graphics however are a quite cluttered in 2D mode on a small device. Might be better on a tablet.

It's worth the $2 at least =)

Well, I went ahead and grabbed a copy on Amazon US for $43. It's about $10 more than I originally was going to pay for the game (or would likely pay if I waited), but I realized it was worth $10 to me to enjoy the game now rather than wait for up to 18 months for it. So excited to play this in May when my parents-in-law bring it.

I've got my eye on the Golden Fleece too, pending Clank! Sunken Treasures' exact release date (since I've got them on a combined order to save shipping).

As for Thailand, buying designer games here is usually very expensive. There's almost never a localized version, since Thais aren't really into designer board games (yet), so you're pretty much always paying a premium for importing. FLGS are few and far between. Having people bring stuff from the US is by far the best option I've thought of, unless dealing with game stuff that can fit in small packages (like ArtsCow decks or small orders from Cundco).

Also confusing is that some of the localized versions have been priced higher than the imported versions :/

I do enjoy it. I've probably played my copy about 6 times now, but almost every time has been with 1st timers, so I got soundly beat when I tried online the other day.

Might be time to start talks with the AlphaGo crew.

I own only Tsuro... But I'd buy Tsuro of the Seas should this copy ever get worn out (pretty close now actually)
