An evening of horses and tax collection
League of Six (Age 12+, 3-5 players 60+ minutes playing time)UK Games Expo working with Imagination Gaming playing lots of great family games with lots of lovely strangers but it was good to be home with my own group. At Gwen’s suggestion our evening group of (Crispin, Malcolm, Gwen and Natalie) went for League of Six. This is a tax collecting games set in medieval Germany where each player is trying to juggle a number of variables (guards, horses, taxes etc) to rise highest in the favour of King Sigismund.
Galaxy Trucker and Dungeon Lords) with an unusual game board, nice artwork and a game that plays without too much downtime. In the end Malcolm triumphed; Gwen tried a very different approach to points scoring in the hope that it would deliver a big score at the end of the game but League of Six does not work like her favourite – Stone Age.
An interesting game with depth but drier than our normal fair.
