Hallertau – Uwe’s Latest Heavy Gaming Masterpiece

Hallertau

Uwe Rosenberg, one of the most well known designers of board games, has been at it again with his new game Hallertau. Published by Lookout Games we bought this game at the same time as we picked up another game from Uwe you may have heard of, A Feast for Odin.

What we were surprised was that the box was almost as heavy as the mighty 7 pound box that is A Feast for Odin. At nearly 6 pounds of game contents, Hallertau is no light weight game. Weight of the game boxes isn’t the only thing that makes these heavy games. There is a complexity of the rules and game interactions that are common to Uwe Rosenberg designed games.

However, is this really a masterpiece game? Let’s dig into the game and find out!

  • Players: 1-4
  • Playtime (with Setup): we find it around 90-180 minutes
  • Publisher: Lookout Games
  • Designer: Uwe Rosenberg

You Don’t Want to Let Time Slip Away in Pendulum

Pendulum

This wasn’t a game that had grabbed my attention originally. I am not sure quite what it was, but this game, like so many, was lost in the ocean of game releases.

Never fear though, my wife had flagged it and when it went on sale decided to order it. It arrived as a pleasant surprise game for us to get to the table and play.

More Monuments! More Civilizations! Tapestry: Plots and Ploys Explored

Tapestry: Plots and Ploys

Tapestry, for us, has been one of the most played games of 2020. It was a game that was heralded with a lot of hype at release, but seems to have not lived up to that hype in everyone’s minds. Yet, it’s eye catching table appearance, easy rules, and fairly scalable play at all player counts has made it easy for it to make it to the table.

Since the first expansion, Tapestry: Plots and Ploys was announced, we have been hyped up to get our hands on it. With anticipation since we ordered it we are now finally able to get it to the table and out of the box. Let’s take a look at the components and what this really adds to Tapestry.

  • Players: 1-5
  • Playtime (with Setup): We find it between 90 and 180 minutes
  • Publisher: Stonemaier Games
  • Designer: Jamey Stegmaier
