I play this game alot with my kids.Its a perfect family game.Each of you have your own Island on with you build up your city and plant your various crops.You can sell or export your crops.What I love is the variety of different ways to win.You get a sense of achievement by building up and creating your own little world.
War of the Ring
One of my favourite 2 player games(imo its a two player game).Great fun,it reflects Tolkiens world perfectly.Trying to get the Ring to mount doom for destruction while battling accross the land to hold back your enemies.The tension rachets up as your enemies move in.Great stuff!. When the whole game is set out , its a thing of beauty.The gameplay along with different races/and the beautiful map add to the overall athmosphere.
I will add a photo when I get a chance.
