Got Elasund and Farlander from Tactic. Both are interesting games in their own way.
Elasund is, of course, the latest game in the Catan franchise. The Catan basics are there (die roll for resource production, building to ten victory points), but outside that it’s something fairly new compared to other Catan games. There’s one aspect I have doubts about, and that’s the ability to remove points from your opponents: based on the comments from people, there’s potential to drag. I prefer games, where the game can only progress.
Farlander will be covered in the next entry.
