🇺🇸🇬🇧: CHALLENGE TIME: #letsreducethepos - 51 games on the POS in the beginning of 2022 - that needs to be changed!
Third & Fourth game down - 47 to go!
Here it was quite easy to reduce the POS by two games at once as the basic rules for Railroad Ink. Deep Blue & Blazing Red from @horribleguild are the same - each box just contains different expansion dice.
Do you like roll&write games❓
First some facts:
Players: 🏂-🏂🏂🏂🏂🏂🏂 (or even 12 when you have both boxes)
Time: 20-30 minutes
Weight: 🏂(🏂) (out of 5)
Designer: Hjalmar Hach, Lorenzo Silva
Artist: Marta Tranquilli
FIRST IMPRESSION: 👍 (range from 👎👎👎 to 👍👍👍)
The game is quite nice - the material is really cool, boxes with magnetic lids, nice boards & dice. The game itself is quite simple nevertheless tricky to master and with the huuuge amount of expansions available you have a lot of variety here.
But why only one 👍? I think this is a great game that you can easily play even with a huge amount of players. The rules are very simple and you can more or less start right away. And for that I think it is an amazing game. That is just not the way I will use it very regularly - just because I do not have many occasions like that. I prefer to play roll&writes as solo games - and for that from my perspective Railroad Ink. is quite boring - there I would always prefer to play games like Hadrian's Wall that are far more challenging.

Tapestry: Arts & Architecture is a brilliant expansion.
I like it with expansions, when the original games core essence remains, but I do want something significant to change, not just more stuff.
This expansion has more stuff, but it also adds a fifth track to advance along which not only offers new benefits, but an entirely different strategy and feel to the game which I really enjoyed.
This needs a few more plays before I review this, and with different player counts, but today in a two it was great fun, despite my 15 point defeat to Jacob(8)!
He worked out at the end that I had advanced a lot more on the tracks than him, but he had been a lot more efficient with point making options as he had used just 42 resources to advance on the tracks and I had used 59. Interesting to see that dispite advancing more and generating more resources he still won by a long way.
We both completed one track and got to stage four on Exploration and stage three on Technology, but I was two ahead on Military and five ahead on the track he completed compared to his position on the one I completed.
How do you play Tapestry?
Have you tried either of the two expansions yet?
