Thurn und Taxis at BSW

I tried Thurn und Taxis at BSW recently. It’s a nice implementation, though the graphics were a bit low in quality — but that seems to be the rule in BSW. The interface works generally pretty well, once you figure out one or two things. It certainly isn’t among the more difficult or wieldy user interfaces in BSW, if not the best either.

I initially rated T&T as a solid 8 game, but I’m having second thoughts. It’s starting to feel like a 7 to me, really — a better version of Ticket to Ride, but not much more (you know, drafting cards and building connections with those cards). The key element in the game is definitely the way the offices are played; that works really well and is a good detail. However, I’m not sure the rest of it is really that impressive.

Well, I’ll keep it as an 8 for now and I’ll definitely want to play few more games at BSW to figure it out, but I know for sure I’m not getting it myself.
