If you're playing well, the game is about getting the other players to all screw each other.


This! It’s all about misdirection and negotiation.

Also, I don’t know how anyone could possibly play this game on BGA. So much of the game is played “above the table.” You need to be able to see your opponents’ tells, what they give away with a glance or the flutter of their fingers.

It's kinda awful on BGA. You need to be there in person, need to be actively working your opponents. The game isn't good without play-by-play commentary.

In my defense, I do open every game I buy...it might just take a few years for them to get played! That's all. :whistle:

I will give you all a report on my experience with it once I return like the good lad I am. I honestly might tell my friends that El Grande is a priority or Ubarose will hurt me.

Please do note that El Grande is a 5p game that stretches to 4p, if you want to see it in it's best light :)
