Episode 119 — Opaque Glasses and Muddled Microphones

If you like to convert resources into goods and then use those goods to build structures and make technological advances while saving your money for conversion to other currencies (phew!), then you have come to the right place.

  1. Thanks for the For-Ex discussion, the game is on my radar even though there are a few things that concern me. This seems to be one of those releases that demand repeated play, so the issue is are people willing to commit to repeated plays given the obscurity and time length?

    Anyway, Hollandspiele never fails to entertain…

    1. Glad you enjoyed the discussion. I would say as long as you know people who enjoy economic games you should have folks willing to play. I think the game offers repeated plays. I know I want at least a few more cracks at it. And even though Joe has a copy, I’m considering getting one myself.
