Product Description

The Cinque Terre is a rugged, coastal section on the Italian Riviera and is composed of five villages. The villages are known for their beauty, culture, food, and proximity to one another. Produce carts are commonly found in each village marketplace. In this game of strategy, players compete to sell the most valuable produce in the five villages. Players act as farmers and operate carts in which they will harvest produce and deliver them to the five villages to sell. Additionally, players will compete for Produce Order cards, which reward Lire for selling desirable produce in specific villages. Players track sold produce in each village using their Fulfillment Cards. The winner is the player who gains the most Lire by selling valuable produce, gaining popularity in the villages and fulfilling Produce Orders.

It has the feel of a very high-end game because of the little wooden pieces and the beautiful artwork.
Ed Anderson
Game play is a little deeper than Ticket to Ride but it is not difficult to pick up if you are familiar with other 'gateway' games (Catan, TTR, Carcassonne).
Russell Kerstetter
This game is easy to learn and play almost immediately so it makes it a great choice as a gateway game for first time gamers not used to a euro-style game.

Cinque Terre: The Five Villages
Designed by Chris Handy

Introduction
Multiple games are named after famous or significant places throughout the world. One of my favorite games is actually designed and named after a famous fortified French town, Carcassonne. Other really fun games named after famous locals include but are not limited to: Puerto Rico, San Juan, Hawaii, Pantheon, Jamaica, Alhambra, and Jaipur. Cinque Terre for those who don't know is a rugged portion of coast along the Italian Riviera. "The Five Lands" consists of 5 cities which are close in proximity one to another. If you check out the pictures online, it definitely looks like a nice place to visit. I have visited Italy once seeing Rome, Florence, and Venice. I definitely would like to visit Cinque Terre if there is another trip to Italy. Also, I would like to mention that it is kind of crazy that while reading Dan Brown's newest book Inferno that is based on Dante's The Divine Comedy and which takes place in Italy - I have reviewed both Little Devils and Cinque Terre.

Overview
The goal of this game is to harvest produce to sell in the varying markets completing as many orders as possible. The game is for 2 to 5 players and takes approximately an hour to play. The game's concepts are easy to understand and I would think that children 8+ could play it fairly well (manufacturer recommendation is 13+). When thinking about the complexity of the game, I would compare it to Ticket to Ride. The competitiveness of the game however may relate better to Thurn and Taxis. You can't physically block paths like in Ticket to Ride, but you can claim available points before someone else. I and the wife really enjoyed this game. Let's take a look at what's in the box...

In this new game from Rio Grande Games, you are harvesting goods, and delivering them to the five coastal villages of Cinque Terre.

The game is quite straight-forward to learn, and features a simple pickup-and-deliver mechanism around which the game revolves. First you'll collect cards for various goods - there are eight types in the game: tomatoes, oranges, lemons, zucchini, grapes, mushrooms, olives, and garlic. Then you'll use these cards to harvest produce (represented by cubes), which you'll put into your player cart. From there you'll transport your produce to the villages where you'll sell them at different prices, trying to earn as much money as you can. In the process, you'll try to earn bonus points by filling out "orders" for specific goods that need to be delivered to specific villages, and for being the player that is the most popular supplier for a particular village.

The components are colourful and attractive, and the game itself features a great deal of strategy. It's easy to learn, yet fun and challenging to play. You can get lucky with the cards from time to time, but for the most part it's all about strategy, clever decisions, and making the right choices. Interaction with other players primarily comes in the form of competing to be the first to fill out a produce order or to be the most popular vendor for a village, so you will definitely need to keep an eye on what your opponent is doing, and sometimes the competition will be tight!

This is a very simplified pickup and deliver game. There are 7 spaces on the board, 3 where you can pick up goods by discarding matching cards sort of Ticket to Ride style and 4 spaces where you can sell those goods for differing values. Also like Ticket to Ride while selling those goods gives you immediate points you are also trying to fulfill orders that give large point bonuses for selling specific goods in specific areas.

There is just so little to this game though, each round you can do 3 actions, either draw a new good card from 4 face up and a face-down deck (also very reminiscent of TtR), pick up goods, move, or sell goods.

This is too breezy for me, even for a game that teaches pickup and deliver pretty easily and plays in an hour or less. Also, the luck of the draw with the goods in this game can be way more brutal than something like TtR for example and you can find yourself getting screwed by chance.

It is a very pretty game though and very pleasing to look at. A grown man I played this game with kept exclaiming uncontrollably "this is so cute!" But you gotta have substance behind a pretty face and this one is pretty vapid.

Verified Purchase
I absolutely love this game. I had read reviews on Board Game Geek about Cinque Terre and many said that it was a cross between Days of Wonder Ticket to Ride and Finca. With that being said, I have never played either of those games (yet) so I can't compare it that way. Cinque Terre is an excellent gateway game for people new to board games. I personally really enjoy the theme and the design of the game components.
The basic premise is to imagine that you are an Italian Vegetable/Fruit farmer who has to pick vegetables and sell them to five surrounding villages, but they have to make sure that the right towns get the right vegetables. Meanwhile, your fellow vegetable/fruit farmers are all trying to fill their own vegetable orders or they may unknowingly be trying to do the same order. The game ends when either two fields run out of produce or when 5 orders have been filled by any one player. The game instructions are very clear and it is very easy to teach someone else the game

This is a great game worth the price. On top of that, my family normally doesn't play board games at all, yet they have been begging to play this game again.
