BGWS 009 – Santiago

Santiago is a light-weight strategy game about planting and irrigating crops in a hostile environment. Mechanics involve bidding and placing tiles. (12:31)

This week, I’m taking a look at Santiago. In this game, you bid for the right to select tiles, bribe one of the players to get irrigation, and set up temporary alliances throughout the game.

There’s a new high-quality (and high-size; episodes are over 100MB) version of BGWS hosted at the Internet Archive. (The link to the high quality-version will normally be at the bottom of the links to the show, and as I have time, I will be going back and adding high-quality versions of past episodes.)
