Mesopotamia Review

by Susan Rozmiarek

I've posted a long overdue review of Mesopotamia, a game by Klaus-Jürgen Wrede and published by Mayafair and Phalanx Games.

"Players control nomadic tribes in ancient Mesopotamia, exploring, settling and building holy places. The game is essentially a race to fulfill certain victory conditions that uses exploration, resource management and pick-up and delivery mechanisms. "

For some reason, I thought this was going to be a heavier game than it turned out to be. Phalanx "big box" games give me that impression even though I haven't actually played many of them. I'd classify Mesopotamia as on the lighter side of middleweight making it a good choice for both my game group and my family. I liked it a lot although some gamers are going to gripe about the luck elements.

Thanks for the review, Susan. One of my game group just got this but we haven't played yet so this was a good, quick way to know what I have to look forward to. It sounds like the kind of game I enjoy.
