About this deal

On a later turn, place another worker in the Quarry – so now you have two workers there – you earn two stone. At a Black Market Reset, every player with a worker at the Profiteer’s location receives a penalty based the Contribution/Consequence card and all their workers are moved to the Prison, while the player with the most workers at the Princess’s location gets a bonus. This deluxe Collector's Box is designed to fit Architects, Works of Wonder, Age of Artisans, and all additional content, such as promos and metal coins. The North Sea Trilogy is well loved by many with Raiders of the North Sea being highly rated and recently turned into an app.

Pushing your luck to grab three or four of a particular resource isn’t unheard of, and if nobody feels the need to capture your workers you can often press the advantage enough to not need that spot for the rest of the game. Organizer insert designed for Architects of the West Kingdom and the expansions: Age of Artisans and Works of Wonder. Or do you push your luck and keep squeezing more wood and stone out at the risk of making things even harder as the game drags on? The bot doesn’t gather resources, except for marble, which is used for scoring, so something like money from the Tax Stand is instead placed back in the bank.Do you spend a turn capturing your Artisan back or leave it on the board knowing your opponent may do the same?

It’s very easy to learn the new actions and features, and if you don’t feel confident using them, you can still compete just using the base game actions. If you already knew ‘the smithy’ was a gain resources card you could probably work out the rest from context. While the game is the lightest of the West Kingdom trilogy, it does offer a decent challenge (more on that later).It’s easy, in all the glorious gluttony, to lose sight of the fact that the benefit may not actually align with the cards you have in hand.

Workers freed from one place can go on to work somewhere else later, and there’s direct impetus to capture other players’ workers, as you can make a lot of coin by doing it. Guildhall – In the upper right hand corner of the board, there are a bunch of meeple outlines in a grid – place your meeple on the next available space (based on player count).

It is nice to have another color option (orange), but I do not play this game with more than four players. Do you want to take shortcuts by visiting the Black Market, stealing from the Tax Stand, and building valuable but ill-reputed buildings like the Dungeon? Town Centre – This is a weird location where you may spend 1 coin per worker you have in the Town Centre to then collect all the workers of one color from a single board location mentioned thus far.

As with a lot of worker placement games though, the theme doesn’t make a whole lot of sense, but it does a decent job. If however, you’re like me and you sometimes like messing with your opponents and don’t mind if they mess with you, then the solo mode is definitely going to be up your street.

You drop your guy, claim your stuff/perform your action and that’s it, your turn is over and the game moves on. I might be in the market for Tapestry plus the expansion, but then again, that’s a hefty investment for solo only. There are parts of the game where you might feel like a dog chewing on an expensive but delicious pair of shoes.
