About this deal

It’s simply not a big deal in those games for a player to try the tile in several locations before choosing. At the end of the game, each player receives victory points for each tile in their clan territory containing a scroll icon. I’ve played most of my games over lunch breaks at work, and Isle of Skye is ideally suited for this. Of course, that’s only in theory – the tiles have whatever value the group places upon them, and if denial of opportunity has an economic value then you just increased the worth of the tiles for everyone.

It’s the economy as defined by the collaboratively constructed scoring that is the heart of the game. This review is primarily meant to be about the value of the Big Box, but I can’t really do that without talking briefly about the original game.

In step two, each player draws tree tiles from a communal bag and sets them in front of their screen. The lack of available expansions which really add to the base game is also a shame but hopefully something that can be rectified in the future. However, if the tile does not get bought by another player then you get to keep the tile but lose the money you put on it. Please include what you were doing when this page came up and the Cloudflare Ray ID found at the bottom of this page. I have taken the time above to explain these key mechanics because they are in my opinion what makes this game really impressive.

And I wouldn’t be surprised if, with continued plays, it becomes enthroned in my top ten games of all time. I’m Scottish (you may have noticed) and this misty eyed romanticism of my homeland is not new to me. It uses the Isle of Skye as its setting, with players representing clan chieftains each vying to build a kingdom.I love playing it at two players, it really works nicely when you are duelling it out for supremacy. Everyone shares a scoring context, and then supplements it with the tiles that best suit their strategy. Nevertheless, players need more time to play the game with this expansion, since it immensely increases the game length.
