5.0 out of 5 stars One of my all time favourite worker placement games, 24 May 2012

This is a great game. I love the theme, the artwork on the board is lovely. And it is just such an addictive game. I have had this game for around 3 years and have played it many many times. As well as online.

As with all worker placement games, on your turn you will have to make a decision where to go, from all the options available. You need to balance what you do. You need to feed all the workers you have. So best not to make too many new workers early on, you can make a new worker (the hut! takes two meeples ;) lol), you chose to go up on the food production line (so you need less food each turn, gain wood, stone, clay or gold, make a tool, buy a card, or build a building, or go hunting for food. It's a simple game, but there are many tactics you can use. I for example like the cards, they give you something immediately and help with the scoring at the end, and to get up the food production quickly and then get some workers.

It's a fun Euro medium weight game. Easy to learn but takes a bit longer to master. I have enjoyed it as a two player game, but think it is better as a three player game.

5.0 out of 5 stars "It's a grown-up game", 14 Mar 2010

I like playing boardgames, of all sorts, so when forced to participate in a game of Catopoly (a mongrel offspring of Monopoly and the Observer guide to cat breeds) I looked for a better alternative and eagerly waited for the upcoming tenth birthday.

The game has been a great success, playing both with mother and daughter. The game has a lot of options and victory points, but the indivdual mechanisms are all very simple. Certainly it's no worst that Monopoly to teach to play, though it helps that I play such games, so can identify the familiar individual elements and explain them one-by-one. The 'theme' is beautifully illustrated, though slightly abstract, but it is the need for continual (easy) calculations that is the educational side. The 'mating hut' is the source of occasional amusement, but for a ten year old is just part of learning about the birds and bees (one plus one equals three).

The ten year is hooked, it's fun to play, but she recognises that, for all the pretty game components that this has some extra layers of complexity, so she proudly explained to her mother that she wouldn't play it with her younger cousin because "it's a grown-up game". And so it is, suitable to all ages of children from nine to ninety!

Absolutely love this game... Have played it before with friends, and had to have my own copy. On a par with ticket to ride and power grid, which are firm family favourites. The board and playing pieces Are beautiful. The whole thing oozes class. Love it!
