Vineta

This game centers on an island in the middle of the game board. Each turn a part of the island sinks beneath flooding with players trying to sink as many of the other players minions as possible, while protecting their own.

Wildly chaotic and random, lots of screw-your-neighbour activity which gets nasty rather than fun in the 6 player version. You can really feel picked on in this one. The mechanics work but there is no room for planning or much strategy as luck plays a heavy part.

One major design flaw is that the Red and Orange tiles look very similar if you don’t have a very bright room so this causes confusion.

All in all, an OK game that is worth an occasional play for a laugh with the right crew like my gaming group buddies.
