California   (View Game)

California is a tile-laying game that reminds me a bit of Alhambra, but with a less steep learning curve and a very "friendly" theme - interior decorating. It is a great way of introducing people to tile-laying games as it is relatively simple and plays fast - but it is also quite a satisfying experience. I particularly like the objectives that you can try to accomplish for points, since they add different motivations for players.

I was given this game as a gift and knew nothing about it beforehand. It has become one of my favorite games now. It plays well with two and four (haven't tried 3 or 5 yet). You have to decide when to get points from remodeling, furnishing, or guests. There is actually quite a bit of influence you have on your opponents. Do you take a coin to help build your cash flow - but lowers prices for the others? Do you store the one piece of furniture your opponent has been waiting for in your attic? Who will be the first one to claim that bonus tile? There are a few mini expansions that can be printed from online too! Great game!

This is a fun family game of decorating a house in the California hills. This game combines set collection with tile placement to create great game time. Nice components and an approachable theme make this a great game for you family collection.
