Really different idea

We've loved this Christmas present! The setting and aim of the game is so different to anything else we have - as is the game-play. It's a bit daunting to grasp the first time you play - but by halfway through the first game we sped up. Every game is different due to the large number of different challenges and tiles. The meeples of the staff are fun. The cards of the gentry are great and provide some interesting backstories. I can understand why this game sells out so fast!

Great game with an unusual theme

Obsession passed me by initially, but a friend put me onto it and I decided to give it a try. A week later, i've already played it 3 times and bought the expansion! It's surprisingly immersive and the mechanics work together extremely well. Definitely a top addition to my collection.

OVERVIEW

AWARD-WINNING THEME: Obsession is set in 1860s England, but it is a passionate tribute to much more—from Jane Austen's Regency era through the Industrial Revolution and the evocative literature of the Victorian period to early 20th century Edwardian England. The affection for this period is not for the high and mighty, but for the underdog. It is Lizzy Bennet and John Bates, Jane Eyre and Elinor Dashwood, David Copperfield and Mary Thorne.

AWARD-WINNING STRATEGY: Obsession is a strategic Victorian era Euro-style board game that requires players to carefully manage their domestic staff, household renovations, social connections, and the family’s emerging reputation in the county.

NEW IN THE 2nd PRINTING: Unique to the second printing (indicated by 2E topped by a crown in the upper right-hand corner of the box) are two new hybrid improvement tiles: The South Lawn and Green Room. Hybrid tiles refer to a room or outdoor space that is multi-purpose; as a result, the tile category changes with the activity, a power that greatly impacts courtship!

THE BUILDERS' MARKET RESERVE: New management of the Builders' Market prevents it from stagnating and increases access to service tiles.

THEMATIC STORAGE SYSTEM: An entirely unique 8-box storage system with six boxes dedicated to the Obsession families and two large internal boxes for storing major components; supports storing the game flat or on its side.
