We put Bruxelles on the table, a locally made eurogames about fin-de-siècle architects in Brussel.
“Bruxelles 1893 is a worker placement game with elements of bidding and majority control. Each player is an architect of the late 19th century and is trying to achieve through various actions, an architectural work in the Art Nouveau style. The most successful building yield the most points. Each player can also create works of art to increase his score.”
It was a bit of a dry Euro and it seems to hold together fairly well. Usually the first playthrough of a Euro is enough to get a sense of what you should be (or should have been) doing, but at the end of this game I still didn’t have a clear idea. I wasn’t super excited about it, but would like to try it again to grok it!
