quirky Spiele 2020 barn combo ...
« on: November 23, 2020, 03:11:55 AM »
Playing a two handed game and just taking my turn as white with the 2020 Spiele promo tile ...

It's interesting that, because of the bridge leaving the city, this is a legal barn placement - even though at first glance it doesn't appear to be. Right now it's only worth 6* points though - it'd be nice if the 3 incomplete cities were already complete. Anyway, going to play it and see what happens.

* There's a second complete city just beyond the right edge of the image.

White meeples looks interesting but they are catch a lot of attention of players. If white want to hide some placement than he failed.
Anyway barn is placed correctly and scoring is also correct due to fields are connected under bridge on Spiel '20 tile

I hadn't thought of that!

I often play white because I'm colourblind and it is easy to see for me. It hadn't occurred to me that it is also particularly easy for others to see too!

If you're playing against me your best colours to blend in are probably green, red and black - in that order. As well as blending in with the landscape it is also about blending in with each other. Having said that my family and friends always play a different colour at my request to make it easier for me to see what is happening. :)

This is also the main reason I bought 2 additional colours - orange and white - so that I could see easily which was which. Ease of visibility for me, in descending order, is - white, yellow, orange, blue, pink, black, red and green. Whenever it's just me and my wife she plays red but that's ok because I know if it's not mine it must be hers. (She still benefits from the camouflage effect that you mention though I'm sure!)

In games with large numbers of players I just request that they all choose something other than green.

If I ever play 8 players? I won't care about the score obviously so it doesn't matter. :)

Understand.
In this case green and red are for you problematic and have to be removed from game. But if your wife's favourite collie is red :)
I usually lost my plays with family but I enjoy time spent together. I can't use offensive playing but it's ok. I save it for my doomest opponent Adda from JCloisterZone :)

Hi cicerunner!

Have you tried to combine meeples different textures?

Transparent meeples can be a problem, but what about frozen ones?

One meeple in each color (available here: https://cundco.de/en/accessories/238/8-different-colored-frozen-meeple?c=36)



And complete sets in each color available here:

Cheers!

Not at all... I'm just offering you options  ;D

I was reluctant but finally ordered them...

The last frontier for me, the transparent ones... They are nice, but I think they will be difficult to spot when placed in the playing area... Guys, any experiences in this regard?

Great photo cicerunner.  Seems like that Spiel20 tile may become my new favourite glomming tile.
