Game Profile: Antiquity Quest

Publisher:  Grandpa Becks Games, 2019
Players:  2 – 8
Time:  30 – 90 Min.

 


The theme of Antiquity Quest is that
players are archeologists searching for the most valuable sets of antiquities
and treasures.
  This is a set collection
and hand management card game that features six different suits of antiquities
numbered from 1 to 5.
  Each set has 5 of
each number plus three wilds.
  Additionally,
there is a suit of five different treasure type cards which are more valuable
than the antiquities.
  And lastly, there
are two types of special ability character cards (Tess and Nigel).
 The objective is to get rid of your cards while
creating as many specific sets worth victory points as you can.
  The player with the most points at the end of
three rounds is the winner.

 
The mechanics of the game are straight forward. Players begin the game
with two hands of cards, ten as their starting hand, and ten face down in front
of them that won’t be picked up until their first hand is completely gone.
  On a player’s turn they either draw two cards
from the face down draw deck or they take the entire discard pile.
  That player can then lay down new sets in front
of them and/or add to any existing sets, theirs or their opponents as well as
play any Tess or Nigel cards that they have.
 
The round ends when a player has gotten rid of both hands of cards and
will receive a significant scoring bonus for doing so.
 The other players get one last turn to lay down
whatever cards from their hand that they can.

 
At the end of each round tally your points on the score pad. There is a
500-point bonus awarded to the player who ended the round.
 Complete sets will score ranging from 250 points
to 1,000 points depending on its type.
 A
completed set is 5 cards – no more no less.
 
  A complete set made up of a mix
of same numbers of a suit and treasures is not worth as much as a complete perfect
set that is made up of one of each number for that suit, i.e. a straight.
  The same goes for treasures, a complete set with
duplicate treasures of the same type is not worth as many points as a complete set
made up of one of each of the different treasures. Additionally, each card in
your complete and incomplete sets scores points based on it’s type.
  Points are also scored for played Tess and
Nigel cards.
  Lastly, point deductions for each unplayed card remaining in your hand. 
 
Antiquity Quest is quick and smooth with scores that reach tens of
thousands.  The cards are typical of
Grandpa Beck’s Games high quality.  This
one is fun with the opportunity for some serious I gotcha moments.

Game Profile: Century Spice Road and Golem Edition

Publisher:  Plan B Games, 2018

Players:  2 – 5

Time:  30 – 45 Min.


Century
Spice Road
is a game about trading spices on the way to
providing spices in the right mix to satisfy customers and gain points for
doing it.

Century
Golem
is a re-themed version of Century
Spice Road
, only you are traveling the golem road for
crystals to deliver and gain points from those deliveries.


The game mechanics are quick to learn and easy to teach.  Spices come in four flavors represented in
color cubes.  They start with yellow
(turmeric) and become progressively more valuable as they are traded up to
green (cardamom), to red (saffron), and finally brown (cinnamon). In the
central play area there will be a row of five face-up customer cards with spice
requirements and a stated victory point value. 
These will be replaced as they are claimed.  Next, there is a row of six face-up merchant
cards – also replenished as they are taken. 
Merchant cards are played to either upgrade or trade spices.  On a turn, you may take one of four possible
actions: You can play a card from your hand to take its action (upgrade or
trade).  It then goes in your own discard
pile.  You can take a new merchant card
from the central row of six face-up merchant cards currently available and add
it to your hand.  You can claim a claim a
customer/point card by discarding the required spice cubes.  Satisfying a customer from the first or
second slot can yield a gold or silver coin worth end game points.  Or, you can pick up your previously played
merchant cards that make up your discard pile and add them back into your
hand.  Play continues in this manner to
the end of the game.  The game ends when
a player has gained 5 or 6 customer/point cards depending on player count.  Add up the points from customer cards (they
range from 6 points up to 20 points). 
Add in points for any gold coins and silver coins gained.  Then add a point for each non-yellow spice
cube left in your inventory.  The player
with the most points is the winner.

Century
Golem
features exactly the same game play with fantasy
artwork and crystals rather than spice cubes.
 
The crystal colors are slightly different, moving upward from yellow to
green to blue to pink.

The secret to success in both Century Spice Road and Century Golem is building the right set of merchant cards that work in unison to accumulate spices/crystals faster and more efficiently than your opponents.  Even though this game requires good decision making, it flows smoothly and quickly.  This game works well for both gamers and non-gamers alike.

Game Profile: Architects Of The West Kingdom

 

Publisher:  Renegade Games, 2018

Players:  1 – 5

Time:  60 – 80 Min.

 
Architects
Of The West Kingdom
is all about becoming the best builder of them
all!
  During the game players will construct
individual buildings and work to help construct the cathedral.
  This will be accomplished by placing workers
to gather resources, hire apprentices, select buildings, or even visit the
black market, the town center, and the guardhouse.
  Managing money is a challenge.  Things can be expensive in the West
Kingdom.
  Some ways to get money are not
on the up and up.
  Use those methods and
you lose virtue which can cost you points at the end of the game.
  It can also prevent you from working on the
cathedral.
  On the other hand, bring
being virtuous can score positive points at game end, however, it can keep you
from visiting the black market.

 
Architects
Of The West Kingdom
presents players with lots of choices.  Each player starts with 20 workers and eleven
different places on the game board to place them to initiate actions.
  Each turn consists of playing one worker and
taking the corresponding action.
  Workers
can be used to double up or enhance previous actions.
  For example, place a worker in the quarry and
collect a stone.
  Later place another
worker in the quarry along side your first worker to collect 2 stones.
  A third worker later will yield 3
stones.
  But wait!  Now you are too strong at the quarry.  One of your opponents places a worker in the
Town Center which allows them to capture all of your workers in the quarry and
place them on their player board.
  Later,
they can sell them to the guardhouse for much needed money.
  It is expensive to release workers from
another players’ board, or you can wait until they are sold to the guardhouse
where you can get them back with a worker placement action.

 
One of the most critical actions is go to the workshop.  There players can recruit apprentices and
acquire buildings to be built on a later turn. 
Some buildings require certain types of apprentices to be hired before
they can be constructed.  Players will go
to the workshop many times.  Yes, workers
can be captured from the workshop too, as well as from most locations.  The game flows back and forth with players
gathering, building, and capturing throughout. 
Game ends is triggered when a certain number of construction actions
have been taken.  These include both the
construction of players’ buildings and contributions to the cathedral
construction.  Points are awarded for
buildings, steps on cathedral construction, and either plus or minus points
depending on a players’ positive or negative position on the virtue track.  The player with the most points wins.
 
Architects
Of The West Kingdom
is a stand out when it comes to player
interaction.
  Your workers are going to
get captured multiple times.
  You will
also do your fair share of capturing others.
 
It is a way to gain much needed money. 
In this game, the capturing does not feel all that negative.  Having 20 workers and many places to go and
multiple ways to gain points provides plenty of replay value.
  The board and components are well done.  The game really shines at 3, 4, and 5
players.

Game Profile: Carpe Diem

Publisher:  Ravensburger, 2018

Players:  2 – 4

Time:  45 – 75 Min.


Carpe
Diem
is a game about building the best district in ancient
Rome.  Players will use their patrician
to move across the main game board to acquire the building tiles to construct their
district.  Each player will have their
own district player board to fill.

The mechanics of the game are straight forward. There are three rounds.  On a turn, each player in turn order will move
their patrician along one or two lines to a different location on the main
board and collect one building tile from that new location.  They will place the selected tile on their
district board adjacent to an already existing building.  The starting spot is printed on each district
board.  Along the way, they will displace
banderole chits on their boards which moves them up on a central banderole track
that influences both turn order during the round, and points at end game
scoring.  Players districts can be
constructed with villas, four types of landscapes, four types of dwellings, plus
markets, bakeries, and fountains.  Each
of these different types, when completed, will give a player specific resource(s)
or an immediate use ability.  Villas are
an exception; in that they score points at the end of the game.  The round continues until all tiles have been
taken from the main board.

The genius in Carpe Diem is the way
points are scored.  Villas score based on
their completed size.  The banderole
track is scored based on how far a player has progressed.  There are frame achievements set up randomly during
the game set up phase.  Each player’s
district board will have a locking frame on each of the four sides.  Each frame piece has two achievements with
their VP value indicated on it.  In order
to score these achievements, a player must build the prescribed building straddling
the row or column where the achievement lies. 
Fountain cards gained when placing a fountain tile provide additional
scoring opportunities.

 Separate from game end scoring, there are three mid game scoring phases that
take place at the end of each round.  Scoring
cards are randomly selected from four different decks and randomly placed on
the main board in a grid.  In player
order, based on position on the banderole track, each player must place one of
their scoring discs between two of these round scoring cards.  Each card has different requirements, i.e. completed
buildings or resources to pay.  The
player will score both cards.  The disc
will remain there for the remainder of the game and that spot cannot score
again.  For each card where a player
cannot meet its requirements, they will receive negative 4 points.  It is not uncommon to receive negative
points, especially in the first mid-scoring after Round 1.

Carpe
Diem
is a true point salad kind of game.  There are multiple ways to score points and multiple
ways to win.  It plays well with 2, 3. And
4 players.
