|What a great game! A gorgeous boardgame, art design, board and elephant & palace miniatures. Also has a fantastic box insert storage bin for all the tokens, elephants and palace pieces.The rules booklet could be written a little more clearly though once I wrapped my head around it the game play was smooth and easy. It's not that the rules are difficult, just a number of little item specific rules.
Kids and I had a lot of fun with Bombay last night and they're look forward to playing it again tonight. Great game!
Nitpicker: What wass the point of making the 2 hills areas cost two action points to cross? It just creates 2 board areas everybody avoids for the entire game w/out adding any strategic significance.
|Bombay is a pick-up-and-deliver game which plays really fast while providing lots of tactical and strategic choices. The components (especially the Elephants) are great but what really makes the game shine is the fact that it has just the right amount of player interaction - you can always do something if a player seems to be getting ahead, but you never feel that you are crushed by other players. A great light gateway game.
