It's glad to see this Singapore designed game made it to fairplay. I've played it during the initial proto-type and found it a really fun approach to the stock maket game. This game is unique in a way that it accomodates up to 12 players !!

This is a pretty good party game, most of the time you will be scratching your head to come out with the most philosophical questions, just so that you can predict the outcome. However, do beware that the game rules are a bit complicated to understand, so it's better to have someone to teach the game. Go through it once or twice, and you'll be happy to participate in this party fun.

Wanted to play this game for a long time but due to its out-of-print status, have not got a chance. It's a really good thing that it gets reprinted. This is a wonderful bidding game, with all possible sorts of bidding that you can imagine. The more you play, the more cut throat the price will be. Highly recommended.

Wow!!! I must say that this is a wonderful game that grows slowly into you. Honestly, the box art is a bit plain but once you get into the game, it is another thing. This is a game with lots of strategy and yet simple in execution of rules. Plays very well with 2 or 4 players.

I really love this game. Compared it to the bigger cousin, Puerto Rico, it has the advantage of zero setup time. Game play is simple but to win the game, you need to make sure you have the right buildings that can help you. At this stage, I like the Library a lot but after playing more games, it is likely to change my strategy. It's now the hottest game played in the cafe.

Bean Trader   (View Game)

One thing that Bohnanza player immediately recognize is the artwork employed; The beans are as cute as before. For the gameplay, you travel from one city to another to buy beans and fulfill orders. I am expecting a lot of trading as per the card game, unfortunately, that is not the case. Chances are other players do not trade with you so you can fulfill order.

This is one of the earliest game I was introduced to when I started my boardgame hobby. I revisited it recently and still have great fun with it. The trading coupled with the card sequence aspect of the game is one of the best that I was not able to find in many other games.

Ivanhoe (reprint 2007)   (View Game)
   Lee Kok Khing - SettlersCafe.com
This game is actually very addictive once you get into it. High tension builds up progressively and will reach a climax when more than one player is one chip away from victory. You can start to see players taking side with each other, giving ideas for support and screw-the-king with the right group. I really have great fun with it.

Heave Ho!   (View Game)

I tried this out finally and it's really a light weight, fun game that appeals to non-gamers too. I really have a good laugh and some cunning-expressions exchange with my non-gamer friends while playing this. I only wish it can be played with more players but it will be a big conflict against the theme. Highly recommended as a entry level game.
