Dorf Romantik

The most chill game in all of board gaming.

This cooperative tile laying game of up to six players is meant to be one of the most relaxing activities around. On your turn you simply open a tile, or a "quest" tile if there are less than three quests on the board and simply put it next to any other tile with the exception that rivers and railroads must makes sense with their adjacent tiles. Quest tiles let you place a request token which is a number between 4 and 6 on the tile, and if you put exactly that number of that terrain connected to the quest tile, you take the token for your points scoring at the end.

Run out of tiles and the game is over - you always win BUT you might not always UNLOCK stuff! Yes, this is a campaign game that sees you trying to score your best and while we were nice and relaxed on our first game which gave us 78 points, we tried harder on the next game for 140! What's the highest rating on the score track? 400. Holy sh*t. The escalating unlocks give you more challenges to gain more points and is the main draw for this game - so if you are the type that just opens everything right away OR just doesn't like replaying the same thing over and over this one isn't for you.
