Board Game Quest takes a look at the Deadwood game from Fantasy Flight Games and lets you know their thoughts on the subject.
From the post:
I love worker placement games, but I hate when I have a plan and a player places a worker, always randomly, at least in my mind, on the space I want. I would love to just flick his worker like I was playing Pitch Car…or better yet, assassinate the worker.
If you have ever had a train of thought similar to that while playing a worker placement game, then Deadwood just might be the game for you…
Deadwood is a “wild west” themed worker placement game for two (really three, but more on that later…) to five players that plays in between 30 to 60 minutes. Deadwood plays best with 4-5 players.
