Over the break, we got to play Lanterns, Reef, Raiders of the North Sea, and Brass Lancashire. Of all the ones I played, Brass was the new one for me. I must say that there were lots of interesting choices, but there also seems to be a few fiddly rules that were conditional. All in all, I'd give Brass a 7.5 out of 10. I had to really get in there and work with the rule books and some tutorials to make sure that I understood the game well. I typically learn best when someone else teaches me the game, but my wife was patient and we both put our heads to figuring it out. I would highly recommend it. The game takes place over two eras and is about network building and engine building.
I've never played my own copies of Brass, but I've played the game I think 3 times now?
Come over and I'll explain it to you, I think I could do a pretty good job of teaching. Beer is life.
