Settlers of Catan: 3D Edition by Wolfgang Kramer
I've never been a Settlers fan, but having an iPad and having some time on my hands, I thought, why not try out Settlers of Catan. If it can't be anything more than a board game, why not try out one on the iPad! It wasn't just a game, but a real 3D version of the classic board game. Settlers of Catan 3D is played on the iPad using the standard app that allows you to place your pieces, dice, start the game, etc. This is the first time I've ever played a 3D board game. The iPad screen is split into thirds. At the bottom are all your cards, including your resources and victory points. In the middle are the dice, and at the top is a representation of your cities and the map. I've never played Settlers, so I'm sure a few things in the game are wrong. The board is supposed to be a game board with a city, a river, roads and a town. In the game, you are supposed to play with your five cities, and you gain new cities as you gain new cards. I can't tell if you can lose cities, because in the beginning, my cities have only one resource. I'm not sure how the river works, but my cities are built in such a way that they will eventually have access to it. Also, it appears that a river is built with cities.
When you start the game, you will be greeted with a title screen, which basically tells you everything you need to know. You start with a game board, a map of the world, a city and two resources.
Now, what's missing? The map is all white with no visible tiles, so it's not really anything you can play with. It's just a visual trick. I was told by the host that there is actually a map of the world underneath it, and that when you move your pieces around, the board changes, but I don't see that, so I don't know. In the game, if you win a city, you get an additional turn, but I can't tell if there is any benefit to winning a city, other than adding to the score.
There are eight players. You can't be more than five. The host tells us that the game is intended to be played by two to five people, and even though we played with five, we all kind of did our own thing.
The game takes four rounds. Each round has three phases. The first phase is to claim cities. I really don't understand how this happens. Your opponent does not have a choice, and in my first game, I just grabbed the three cities right away. I suppose that this is where the points are awarded. In my game, I had three cities when it was over. I couldn't figure out how to win and didn't bother looking it up online.
In the second phase, the cards are drawn. Again, I have no idea how this happens. I drew two cards, and one of them was a river card. The problem is that the river card is the last card drawn, and so I had to wait. The river card is drawn first. Then the player to your left plays their river card. If you get the next river card, then you get a free turn, if you get the end of the river, you get the last city. If you get a city, you get an additional turn.
My fourth city was the one I needed, so I didn't get a turn and lost. That's pretty much how I would like to play the game.
After the second round, the third phase begins. The phase involves making trade offers to the person with the most points. In my game, I never made any trade offers because I have never played the game before and I didn't know how it worked. I didn't know if there was a minimum number of cards you had to have or not.
The game ends when you are out of cities, or if you have offered the most amount of trade to your opponent.
I didn't really like the game. We played it for a while, and everyone was pretty active. We played with five people, which was more people than I thought you would need for a game of this size, and we all had a good time. The game has a fairly active social network, so if you have any friends who play, you could probably find something to play. I'm sure that you can find people on the internet who play it. I played two rounds of the demo, so maybe I'm not an expert player, but I don't think that I'm going to play it again.
It's a nice card game, and I think that you should try it out. If you like it, you can buy the game online.

With the last day of 2016 upon us, and my birthday looming, I've decided to spend my time doing something fun, and that's to play the board game I've been wanting to try for quite some time now. I have actually played the game before, but it was on the 4th of July, the day that my parents celebrated their 50th wedding anniversary. In my family, we love the holidays, and that makes the time between Thanksgiving and Christmas the best time to buy presents and celebrate, and my family did that for the first time in a long time. The game that I purchased was The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, and the review of that game will come later in this article. I bought a few games on my trip, but most of them didn't get opened at the time, but will make an appearance later in the year. This time I bought the game with the intention of playing it, and I'll be keeping that intention, and playing the game regularly. Now that I have more time and space to work with, I'm going to review The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game, in detail.
The Lord of the Rings: The Card Game is a cooperative board game that you can play against a computer or against human opponents. Each player controls an individual member of a fellowship, and must take part in various events to help defeat the forces of evil. The core set for the game provides the players with three new adventure paths, three locations of Rohan, the Rohirrim, and the Shire, and twenty-three card types, the most of any collectible card game. The set also contains ten player cards, that can represent characters that will join the quest, including Frodo, Sam, Merry, Pippin, Aragorn, Legolas, Gimli, Gandalf, and Saruman. There are forty-six victory point cards that come with the game, and there are three copies of each of those cards. There are also seven neutral cards, and six neutral victory point cards. The game has eight hero cards, that can also function as victory point cards, and seven of the hero cards are from The Lord of the Rings.
For the purposes of this review, I played with a small group of
