I am going to once again bring a deliciously devious game to CC this week. I will pre-book the previous players as they asked for a repeat play. I ask that they confirm by October 10th. Unclaimed seats at that time can go to general signup...

GAME: Neue Heimat
TEACHER: Matt R
START TIME: 6:30
DURATION: 60-90 Minutes (with Teach)
# OF PLAYERS:5
1. Matt R (Confirmed)
2. Petra (Please Confirm Your Spot)
3. Elaine (Please Confirm Your Spot)
4. Mick (Please Confirm Your Spot)
5. Marc B (Please Confirm Your Spot)

URL: BGG Link

DESCRIPTION:
Tactical bidding game about building the highest scoring houses in three building rows. Simple rules, deep & devious strategy.

The levels are different coloured cubes with numbers from 1 to 6 on it, that are dealt via auction in each round. The first one of a new colour you purchase fixes this colour as yours for the rest of the game and the final scoring. Players also bid for additional pieces to shorten (or lengthen) the lanes and rooftops to finish the houses.
You pay with cheques, each of 1 million euros and can establish an "illegal cashbox", counting at the final scoring, too.
The game ends, when there are two rows completed. The houses on these score positive points, regarding the numbers on the levels and the rooftops, the ones in the third row are scored negative.

Tough bidding game, unforgiving and rather deep for the way it looks.

After playing it a few times recently, to update a previous description, it's a co-op game about farming and friendship where the only thing contrasting the original "chill" sandbox nature of the indie game of the same name is that you must complete a series of goals within a limited time. To accomplish this, you'll have to work together with everyone to plan out your turns and work around the luck-based challenges to the best of your abilities.

All that to say again, that this is game is absolutely charming; the board and all the components are absolutely beautiful, in my opinion. While the overall strategy can be a little bit difficult, precise, and luck-based, overall the game itself is very straightforward and easy to understand.

Thank you for reading another episode of Tyler's mini-reviews.
Got a request for a game, check out this link right here: http://www.boardgamegeek.com/collection/user/t_shak I'd be more than glad to bring any of these out to play.
