  1. Just picked it up at games expo for £10. What a surprise when I started to learn the game properly and realized how good it actually is!!

  2. So, not a Ticket to Ride killer? (Never sure if that phrase ____killer means "for us" or with the masses.) Two years later & I've heard of this game once. It's ok, I think you're great anyway.

  3. I played it a year ago and I don't understand that it hasn't won in popularity that hole year. Maybe will it win now in popularity, because of your review rahdo.

  4. Mangrovia has become one of my favorite 3-player games. It is good with 4 or 5 players where you only get to use one action per turn but it can run a bit too long. With 2 and 3 players you get 2 actions per turn and that makes it more stategic and a lot faster.

  5. The thing that really makes this a good 2P area majority game is the fact that the dummy players not only block spots (as they often do in 2P games) but they actually count toward scoring the area majorities themselves. Rahdo, I know several really good games have lost a space on your shelf for this very reason (Terra Mystica comes to mind).

  6. I enjoyed watching Amazon's remaining copies dwindle shortly after this video was posted. Looks like I might not have been the only one to jump on this as an alternative to Ticket to Ride and New York 1901, or just as a new find.

    Though I haven't played it, New York 1901 seems like it comes down to the bonus cards since everyone has the same set of buildings, and in Ticket to Ride, getting lucky with overlapping ticket routes can give you free points for virtually no effort. Of course, I wouldn't say either are bad games by any means, but the scoring in Mangrovia feels more varied somehow, with those area majorities and amulet trade-offs. I'm looking forward to giving it a try.

    Thanks for the coverage. I had never heard of this one, so it was a pleasant surprise (:

  7. Looks good. Thanks as always for the great runthroughs and thoughts! Not sure it would make me get rid of Ticket, though, bc I still use that as sort of a pure gateway. Like you said, the better comparison might be some of the more complex versions of Ticket, like Nordic Countries or Europe.
