Board Game Reviews
Where the American Frontier meets Euro-style board gaming, Oregon is a strategy game where players place tokens and figures in an attempt to maximize their point potential. I have been told that this game is similar to Carcassonne by the same company. I have not played Carcassonne yet, so I am not sure, but on the outset, the game has a strong Euro-feel so I would not be surprised if there are similarities.
Ticket to Ride (TtR) is one of those staple games you can always see at a convention. It is right up there with Settlers of Catan as one of the more popular games to play. Ticket to Ride: Switzerland is an expansion of that great game that takes you into the tough terrain of the famed country. It adds a few new things and challenges the player in different ways.
