A great family game. The playing time is reasonable, the turns go quickly, and there is variety because of the route changes. Can be won by children as young as seven!

The most fun thing about this game is that you play together to beat the board instead of competing against each other. This is good for overly competitive players (they can be mad at the board instead of at you). The game changes every time because of the cards drawn, and the different roles available. It's also really interesting because the players have to think out loud to explain their strategies to the other players, and you get a real sense of who's the "thinker" or the "doer", or the "cautionary" one. A good personality test!

This is a fun game! One of the reasons it's fun is because you interact with the game (or take a turn) almost every minute - there's no long wait time in between turns. There are a lot of different strategies for winning also, so you can try different ways to get the most victory points. It most reminds me of Settlers of Catan and Agricola. My eight and ten year old children play the game, although there is a steep learning curve to the game.

Our family really enjoys playing this game. There are a lot of different strategies for winning, and the Occupation and Improvement cards add a ton of variety to the game. In other words, you rarely play the same game twice, because the cards you get dictate your strategy. The games it most reminds us of is Settlers of Catan and Puerto Rico. The game is basically taken from life a hundred years ago, when farming was the norm, and increasing your family was important. This game is extremely true-to-life! We like our children to play it to remind them how important it is to get the right advantages at the beginning of your "life". In the game, as in life, if you don't get the right advantages at the beginning, you wind up spending all your time trying to feed your family, instead of making improvements and progressing. Sound familiar? This game has an intense learning curve, but even our eight and ten year old children play it. We've really enjoyed it!
