I'm trying out the new Zoch zum Spielen game Salamanca. This is a tile laying game that feels a bit like New England to me. Players take control of buildings attached to various landscapes that can produce points. Tiles are placed in an 8x8 grid and the producing tiles grow out orthogonally from buildings. The goal is to end rounds with a 7 point or higher farm under your control, which scores 2 gold. You also have opportunities to sell your farm, allowing you to move your worker (control marker) to another building. There are some turn-order building cards that give some special abilities like plagues and building destroyers. If it sounds pretty dry, it is. Nothing really grabbed me about the game and I think I'll pass. Very much a thinking game and it might be a good fit for some folks - just not for me.
