Pros: the game mechanic of getting cards to upgrade your spices is fun. Lots of strategy. The components are superb! Metal coins! Plastic cups! Good size cards, but I am a little concerned about durability since I play it all the time. I may pick up sleeves.
Cons: the durability of the cards. The names of the spices. I can only remember cinnamon. Some players can suffer from analysis paralysis. There are many ways to score. Do you go for the upgrade card that'll allow you to he the point card you want in two rounds (hopefully before another player snags it!)? Should you get that point card now or wait until it hopefully moves down to the gold coin slot?
Get this game!
Note: the trade cards allow you to do th trade any number of times, as long as you have enough cubes. For example: if you have a card that allows you to trade in 1 brown spice (cube) for 2 green and 1 yellow cubes then if you have 2 brown cubes you can get 4 green and 2 yellow cubes, as long a you have spots available. This rule is always missed.
The game has an easy flow and I can see this becoming my new gateway game for new gamers. They are going to release three games in the Century series that will be stand alone expansions. I can't wait to see what the other games will be!
Easy play, on your turn you can take one action:
1: Play a card from your hand.
2: Aquire a trader card.
3: Rest (take all your played cards back into your hand)
4: Score (claim a score card by paying the spice cost.)
The game ends when a player gets his/her fifth score card (sixth in a 2 or 3 player game). When a player gets that last needed score card, the play continues to the last player so everyone gets the same amount of turns.
The main game is the card play. (What else would it be?) The trader cards let you get spices, upgrade spices or exchange spices for other spices. You have no hand limit but you can only have ten spices on your caravan at the end of your turn.
It is very much like Splendor but I have space for both games.
I'm very excited for the next two Century games in this series.
