Gads Hill

and Old Town

 

 

 

 
Questo gioco č la reimplementazione di Old Town (uno dei primi giochi dell’autore, tra gli altri, anche di Schinderhannes) con materiali decisamente migliori e regole riviste e corrette. Č un deduttivo intrigante, distante dagli altri esponenti del genere (ad es. Mystery Express o altri sempre sullo stesso tema) che utilizza il motore della gestione della propria mano di carte per dare voce alle proprie deduzioni.
Il regolamento mi č sembrato un po’ contorto per la semplicitą del gioco in sé e forse qualche regoletta di troppo potrebbe inficiarne la scorrevolezza. Di certo si tratta di un gioco che consiglio principalmente agli appassionati delle sfide logiche e deduttive, potrebbe non piacere a tutti per l’astrattezza di fondo (seppur lo sforzo di ambientazione č notevole), ma credo sicuramente che valga la pena di una prova su strada in fiera!
 
 
Gads Hill 1874 to gra dosyć specyficzna. Nie wszystkim przypadnie do gustu. Nie jestem również w pełni pewien, czy do końca uchwyciłem w tym opisie to połączenie logiki i dedukcji, o którym wcześniej wspominałem. W związku z tym tytuł ten może wydawać się Wam po prostu dziwny. Niemniej ja bardzo cieszę się, że miałem okazję w niego zagrać. Muszę przyznać, że nie spotkałem się wcześniej z tego typu grą, czy też założeniem gry. Gads Hill 1874 z całą pewnością będzie ciekawym urozmaiceniem naszej kolekcji, a w niej chcemy mieć jak najbardziej różnorodne tytuły.

Old Town 2004 Reviews:
 
 

At first glance, Old Town looks like some sort of second rate Wild West theme game. It is WAY BETTER.
Whew! Sorry to have said so much detail but I played it FOUR times at Euroquest 2004, I liked it so much. One time I made an 11 point play. I wish I could have found a copy at the convention for sale! (Patrick Dignam www.boardgamegeek.com)

 

One Hit Wonders
A Game Biography by Joe Huber
Stephan Riedel first self-published Old Town in 2000, releasing a new edition in 2003. The game is not your typical game in any way - players work to prove the placement of various buildings in a ghost town, scoring points for eliminating possibilities. The new edition makes for a better game - but still one with a fair amount of luck. That said, there is a lot of room for clever play, and the game has received a very positive reception wherever I've brought it.  (www.gamenight.com)
 
A great game that's flying under the radar Final Thoughts - Old Town is a game that I definitely want to own. The game mechanism reminds me of the logic puzzles that my high school math and geometry teachers used to give me. I enjoyed solving those puzzles, and I really enjoy playing this game. There is an increase in the adrenalin when you locate a building and you watch the cascade of points roll in as other buildings emerge. The game plays quickly once you understand it, almost a bit too quickly for me. I love the game so much that I hate for it to end. A great, fun brain workout! Definitely a must-have for me! Rating - A strong 9! A 10 with improved artwork and a slightly longer play time (Ken Dozier www.boardgamegeek.com)  
The original version of Old Town was brilliant, but unfinished; the new version plays much better as a game while retaining the unique reverse-deduction element of the original (Joe Huber www.boardgamegeek.com  

Fun deduction game I found this to be a fun game. The object of the game is discover the layout of an old west ghost town. As players play cards, the location of individual buildings are identified. Players earn points by eliminating possible locations of buildings. There is a learning curve with the game. Plan on reviewing the examples and then playing a round just to get the hang of it. If you like logic games like Sudoku, clue, or code 777, you'll like this game.

There are also solotaire variants that can be played with this game. I played a few and found them to be entertaining.https://www.funagain.com/control/product/~product_id=015015
