TableTop Fun: Viticulture

Otherwise known as the science, production and study of grapes. Let's make some wine!!

From BoardGameGeek:
In Viticulture, the players find themselves in the roles of people in rustic, pre-modern Tuscany who have inherited meager vineyards. They have a few plots of land, an old crushpad, a tiny cellar, and three workers. They each have a dream of being the first to call their winery a true success.
Sometimes I think the blurbs for these game make them sound boring... but this game is AWESOME. It's another worker placement game with cute little meeples and many strategies for victory. It has a really neat mechanic that I like a lot - variable turn order. Rotating with the starting player you pick when you want your workers to "wake up". By placing your Rooster Meeple in the early slots you may get to go first... but the later slots give you better rewards. It's a tricky balance.

We also purchased the expansion - Tuscany... but unfortunately we've only added in one part of the expansion so far. I'm looking forward to our next TableTop weekend to add in another.

I'm not sure what is happening here but Emma is awesome. :P
