Awesome Birthday present - South Seas!!
« on: February 10, 2014, 06:20:11 PM »
Guess what I got for my Birthday yesterday - yep, you guessed it Haha - Carcassonne South Seas! And we got to play our first game which I won of course :o (let the Birthday boy win!)

I have to say that this game is the most refreshing spin-off of Carcassonne that I have seen or played. I like the resource collecting mechanic. The mechanic of buying the ships and the Markets. I think the Fish collecting mechanic is very cool (and it actually reminds me a lot of my Farmer In The Dell the way it scores).

The South Sea have nice graphics and great wood pieces.
When we play South Sea - I still miss my score board...

I hope you had a nice day with friends and family...

Happy (belated) Birthday
I got South Seas for Christmas but I have still not tried South Seas together with my own fan-made expansions to it.
Gotta get around to do that

I seem to get positive reviews from all over about this game and more and more I get intrigued to get a copy myself! I bought Discovery last year, which was my first non Carcassonne main game.

My last name is, literally translated, South Village. Maybe they'll have an expansion for South Sea named after me.  :meeple:

HAHAHAHA thanks Guesclin.  I have to agree though, South Seas is definitely my favorite spin off thus far. Happy belated bday Carcking!!

The mini "Freitag"  (Friday) is great...
I think it makes the game more complete.

But I don't have it yet... - As always - I have the rules...  ;D
