I like my games to be fast moving with as little downtime as possible, so I love simultanious action mechanisms. Chinatown employs a very simple but efficient mechanism, where all players negotiate with each other at the same time. It sounds chaotic, and it can be - but it is also great fun, and it pretty much eliminates downtime!
If you like making trades and deal then have I got a deal for you! Chinatown! Z-Man Games has done it again, an out of print classic brought back to life. Set collection combined with tile placement with a healthy dose of deal making means a fun time for everyone. Keep them coming Z-Man.
