But in those games my wife and I always felt like we didnt get to experience the whole game with just the two of us playing. As well as the game would be over, just when you felt you were getting started. This game solved both of those issues for us.
It is almost a 2 hour game for 2!
It's nearly the size of Caverna, but designed for just two. So no components get left out!
My wife loves this game and so do I. But do keep in mind, it is not fast paced. It is more of a farming simulator this time. Rather than a farming arcade game.
My nephew enjoyed the animal breeding and management aspect of the game. We played this two weeks ago, and he is still talking about the animals.
This game has a lot of pieces and requires some setup time.
For me, this is an interesting and challenging game but doesn't have the same fun factor as Le Havre. We will probably play Le Havre more but plan to come back to this often. We've hardly scratched the surface of this one.
Update May 2016: My nephew and I have played this several more times, and it gets better each time. One thing I enjoy is that I can ship stuff each turn, unlike in LeHavre. I enjoy sending my goods to get upgraded. I can get a decent number of points by using the woolen mills and fleshing beams to get a pile of goods to improve. Whatever strategy you choose, it's another Uwe game that requires you to do a little bit of everything.
My nephew enjoys the solo play, too. I liked the solo play but far prefer a head-to-head matchup.
I love this game.
Win or loss, you feel like you've built something in the way you wanted. Want to raise a bunch of cattle? Better clear off a lot of fields and build stables for them. Want to make and deliver goods to market? Better fill your barn with the right vehicles.
The first few plays it felt like there wasn't much more than to pick a strategy and hope it works, but there is a fair amount of nuance your choices and management of all the resources can make some of your decisions rather brain burning. Player interaction is limited, but a big part of winning involves paying attention to your opponent's resources and making worker choices to slow down their engine just enough to foil their plans. Those subtle decision points are what makes this so brilliant.

I could leave it there for the review. Just... wow. I'm more than a little bit of a fan of worker placement games, and those like me know that there's no name...Read more
