Notre Dame   (View Game)
   A.J. Sansom

Well, I finally played this game (and have done so many more times!) and it is fantastic! Mix in some card drafting, a little long-term planning, a whole bunch of tactical choices (particularly in whom to hire at the end of each round), and a little dash of the Black Plague, and you have a wonderful experience! The best part about this game is, even with all of the choices and depth, the game still clocks in at a very reasonable 40ish minutes for us when we play!

Notre Dame actually reminds me of another great game - Yspahan. Although the games have a very different feel to them, they share the race to maximise your actions in terms of victory points and making the most of very limited ressources. What makes Notre Dame stand out, however, are the inclusion of person cards, that each have a large impact on your options. These appear semi-randomly which adds a nice element of variability without making the game feel as luck dependent as Yspahan. Notre Dame is a very refined game with a nice flow and great components - a must for fans of Euro style games.

Quirky idea -running around Paris all the while having to avoid being overrun by a plague of rats. The French might not appreciate the joke but it's a very clever game with some innovative card draughting mechanism to mix up your possible actions. This game works at all levels from family beginners to cut throat human calculators.

This is my favorite strategy game by far. I love the challenge of balancing money, influence markers, and fending off the plague-spreading rats. It kills me to pass some of my good cards to my opponent but I enjoy trying to make the best choice to maximize my game. And you never know what your neighbor will pass you. This card-drafting mechanism makes it a lot of fun. Once you get the rules down, you can play a serious game in under an hour. Check out the Rio Grande Treasure Chest for a good expansion.
