In the end, the player with the best kingdom — and not the richest player — becomes the sovereign of the island. The land purchase system, more than the tile laying, is where the really interesting parts of the game come to life. This was the second successive year the design team of Andreas Pelikan and Alexander Pfister won the Kennerspiel, following the 2015 Kennerspiel des Jahres won for the game Broom Service. The technical storage or access is strictly necessary for the legitimate purpose of enabling the use of a specific service explicitly requested by the subscriber or user, or for the sole purpose of carrying out the transmission of a communication over an electronic communications network. Presentation wise Isle of Skye has the standard Digidiced menu systems and look which we are accustomed to, this means that everything is clear and easy to manage on even a smaller touch screen.

This is a game I recommend to new board gamers as a step up from Carcassonne; it builds on the mechanic of tile laying which they will have learnt and adds into it a simple auction phase in which players will assign money from their own stash to up to 2 out of 3 random tiles they draw. The winner in Isle of Skye (designed by Andreas Pelikan and Alexander Pfister) is the player with the most victory points at the end of the game.Having the game shuffle player odder, or provide preference to other players helps but it is best when players can catch up through their own choices. Isle of Skye is a game that takes the tile laying and terrain matching aspects of Carcasonne and fuses it with a clever auction system to create an elegant, relaxed and and fun little number for two to five players.

You lay them in such a way as to score victory points from the 4 randomly selected victory point criteria. The compensation here is money, which, while worth some points at the end of the game, isn’t worth much.If you like something a bit heavier, meatier, with direct conflict or less luck dependent then Isle of Skye is probably not for you. Luckily, Isle of Skye does all it can to remain speedy: most of the difficult decisions (like pricing and placing tiles) are handled simultaneously. The box alread includes the family friendly Druid expansion, the Tunnel tiles mini expansion, as well as the brand new Boderlands Module mini expansion and offers hours and hours of gameplay. Nonetheless, while the whole is exactly the value of the sum of its parts, it manages to be an extremely likeable game.

The game is played over five rounds: after each round you are scored according to one, two or three of the victory tiles drawn at the start of the game.Secretly and simultaneously, behind their screens, players assign their ax token to one tile (which will be discarded) and assign a value of at least 1 coin to the other two tiles.

Isle of Skye, in comparison, is a very likeable game but not exactly genre shaking in the same way as its competitors. They say that it offers a surprising amount of satisfying strategic depth, and provides opportunities for much strategic thinking and planning.
