Board Game Quest reviews Imperial Settlers

Board Game Quest takes a look at Imperial Settlers in their latest review article.


From the post:This past August I was fortunate enough to be able to attend my very first Gen Con. Although I only went for one day, that day was jam-packed with gaming goodness. For any true modern board gamer, one day is definitely not enough time to see and do everything you’d want at America’s largest board gaming convention. As much fun as I had at the convention, however, the highlight of Gen Con week for me personally, was having the opportunity to meet one of today’s premier board game designers: Ignacy Trzewiczek (Neuroshima Hex!, 51st State, and Robinson Crusoe). He and his wife Merry were visiting the Chicago area the weekend before Gen Con, and we were treated to a learning session with Ignacy’s latest game creation: Imperial Settlers. The game made its worldwide debut at Gen Con this year and sold out in just 26 minutes due to the buzz about the game. Now that I’ve been able to play it several times since then, I wanted to explain how the game plays, and give my thoughts about it.

Imperial Settlers is a card drafting/hand management game, designed by Ignacy Trzewiczek. It plays 1 to 4 players and plays in about 45-90 minutes.
