This is based on a "popular" German board game and is a port of a XBLA version.
Looks like homebrew.
Ooh, I can't wait to try this out.
Fucking yes. I love this game, along with Catan. I was dying for a DS release.
If anyone was wondering, it's basically a game in which you make your own board while you play. You then have to get points by owning areas of it, like farmland, roads, castles, and monasteries. If you like Catan you'll like this game as well.
Whoever makes these games for the DS needs to keep going.
Fuck yes! I am so angry that I won't have my DS this weekend ugh I was so excited for this.
The box art is hilarious.
Even so, if it plays well (eg. Catan), looks matter little.
is there a tutorial, or can some one post a how-to as I never got how to play this one
the game looks more like a construction game... reminded me of railroad tycoon though i dont know if this is the concept of the game. I wonder if there ever be a caesar-like game on the DS... (anno came come)
oh and am gonna try this game if any is wondering
So Download Play? That's awesome, although online play would've been cool.
And I was actually thinking this would've been awesome homebrew. And I didn't expect it to look all fancy; I'm surprised they made Catan look as good as they did, with a 3-D engine and zooming in and stuff.
Yes, the game includes a tutorial.
And the graphics are better than they look from screenshots. It has some nice little things like tiny birds flying overhead, really smooth scrolling / zooming, etc that make it all look a bit more professional than it appears in static images.
and the game is not only based on skill...but luck aswell
(i can know that since i got defeated on each map once before i won)
Looks like a game im not gonna bother trying
Board game, download play multiplayer, and only a few mb? I'm gonna put this on my Puzzle&Misc. MicroSD.
The luck element averages out over the course of a game though - its like poker, a good player will still generally beat a poor player, despite the randomness of the cards. Victory can come down to whether or not you get a piece that will fit somewhere (usually a monastery - those 3 or 4 grass sides are lethal for farm joining), but even in those cases its arguably your fault for not making more chances.
okay once again this is a stupid question but how do you score farms?
If it's the same as the board game then you'll have to wait until the end of the game.
Once the game ends you get one point for every piece of farm you have.
The Rivers Expansion adds Rivers to the board game so you might wanna keep that one in your head and learn things about that
