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.
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...Read more ›
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!Read more ›
