Oktoberfest may be cancelled for 2021 but we still are celebrating here at WiscoDice. Today’s Board Game Brunch match-up is Hellertau with some traditional Oktoberfest foods.
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
