Fun Dice Drafting

We love this game and have enjoyed it at all player counts. It's easy enough to explain to casual gamers, although I'd recommend playing without any of the modules first, but for seasoned gamers, add all the modules in after your first play. Yes, it's more to think about, but it gives you more options to be able to strategise. However, we've yet to play with the Open Doors expansion. Personally, myself and my husband, prefer this to Quacks of Quedlinburg, but that's just our opinion! We love the combination of dice drafting and deck building. Although there are random elements in the game, we feel that bad luck can be somewhat mitigated by the different options available, unlike Quacks which feels very much luck of the draw. Everyone we've introduced it to has ended up getting a copy themselves, so we'd thoroughly recommend it!

Huge variety in one game

I’ve enjoyed this game massively on the two play through I’ve had - the modular design to the board and the various included expansions make this something unique and very variable. There is very little down time as in most of the turn elements everyone plays at the same time, and the only real slowdown is the dice drafting. I’m very excited to try this again!

THE TAVERNS OF TIEFENTHAL

So this is just such a great game, the fact that you can go through your whole deck and that you aren't just randomly pulling out of a bag the same bad luck over and over like it's predecessor. I'd always play with all the 'modules' but you can take them out to make this a game for the whole family. It looks great through out the art and components, it plays in just the right time and I think it's got a good chance at keeping the designers streak of awards coming next year.

OVERVIEW

In the village of Tiefenthal lies "The Tavern of the Deep Valley". There, all citizens from the area gather, but it's important to attract new, wealthy guests for only then is there enough money to expand the tavern, which will then lure nobles into the tavern as well. But which tavern expansion is best? Should you focus on money? Or rather ensure that the beer will keep flowing?

In The Taverns of Tiefenthal the challenge is to skilfully choose the dice and develop your personal deck of cards as profitably as possible. The game is structured with five modules so that your group can add extra levels of complexity as you become more familiar with the game.

English-language edition.
