Intro to Euro Games or how I learned to be Passive Aggressive

Intro to European Games July 25th

Oh, excuse me. Did you need that resource to complete an epic point grab and score the win? My apologizes. What's that, your herd of cattle would now be worth double points except you don't have the land for them to graze on so they must all be destroyed? That sounds painful.

Do you like games where there is little to no direct conflict and yet, subtly you are under handing your opponents for a massive win? If your answer is yes, then Euros are the games for you. These games have only a little luck involved and usually rely on how efficiently you can go down the winning route to score the most victory points. Some involve farming elements. Many of them seem to take place in feudal lands of Europe.

If you have only played games where you roll dice and move pieces, prepare to see how the Europeans play their games.

      And some of us are not very good, so don't worry about that. Speaking about myself, if course

      My favorite is also catching someone's winning scheme and bringing awareness to it.
