Review: Explorers of the North Sea
Explorers is my favourite game of the trilogy and made even better if you get the expansion. Really easy to learn/teach, we’ve even introduced it to non-gamers with everyone enjoying it. It’s got plenty of depth and strategy with just enough luck in the tiles that you draw.
You always feel like you’re doing something and between turns you’re busy thinking about your next few moves. You can interfere with your opponents or keep out of each other’s way, depending on your groups play style. Fantastic game. I always recommend it.
