Ticket to Ride Heart of Africa Map Collection Volume 3 Board Game

3.0 out of 5 stars Not the Best Ticket To Ride Map, But Still Fun., 2 July 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I own all the Ticket to Ride maps and this is probably my least favourite. It's not bad, but the terrain cards (which when played with trains being laid, boost points scored) often don't really have any crucial effect (and also require that you keep score constantly - though we get past this by laying trains on their side to show that a terrain card was played with it).

The way the map is laid out, with the routes being correctly in the right terrain (coast and mountains, desert, and jungles) is nice though and it's still fun, but it's the least played of all the maps we own.

5.0 out of 5 stars The Perfect Filler., 2 July 2014
This review is from: Love Letter Card Game (Toy)
A great little fun game. Yes, there's luck involved, but it's not supposed to be a game of strategic plotting, it's supposed to be fast, light filler fodder and on those counts it covers all bases. You can take it anywhere, play it anywhere and it doesn't take long.

The idea is that you try to end the round holding the highest value card. You only have 2 cards at any one time and must always discard one, playing the effect listed on the card. That might be to protect your remaining card, swap with someone else, see someone else's card, challenge another player or it might have no effect at all. There's a bit of strategy in weighing the odds of what another player is holding by what has already been played and you need a good pokerface (as well as the draw of the cards) to win.

At less than a tenner, you can't go wrong!

5.0 out of 5 stars My Favourite Mini-expansion, 27 May 2014

GOLD! ALWAYS BELIEVE IN YOUR SOUUUUUL!

*Ahem*

8 tiles (and one crop circle tile) drop gold (little gold bars!) around your game of Caracassonne, making for a new way to score points and new mechanics for acquiring them. If you're getting a mini-expansion, get this one first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Now boarding at..., 27 May 2014
This review is from: Carcassonne: The Flier (Toy)
A hill just outside huge city you just can't seem to get a knight into. Nice little mechanic that lets you go where you might not any other way. Lay down a flier tile, orientate it in the direction you want to fly your flier (there's an arrow), roll a 6-sided dice with 2 x 1-3 dots on it and move your follower/meeple 1-3 spaces in that direction. Sometimes it works great, sometimes not so much - but that's the risk, right?

A nice little expansion that adds a different tactic, but it's not worth paying too much for (at the end of the day, it's just 9 tiles and a dice). If you want to expand your Carcasonne, this is one of the better mini expansions.

Nice little pouch that my ZTE Blade fits into perfectly. Hold's it snug and save, plus tab allows the phone to be quickly pulled out. At the price, what's not to love?

5.0 out of 5 stars Dominion: Prosperity - Ups The Stakes, 21 April 2014
Nice addition to the game and stops those goes when you have 7 coins or more than 8 coins without a 2nd buy becoming frustrating. The game can move along swiftly, but with the right combinations of cards (which is always the secret of Dominion) you can get some really fun games with big hits and big setbacks. If you're expanding your base set of Dominion, then this has to be a first or second addition to the game.
