Die Macher is a 5 hour heavy strategy game about German Politics. It is, however, one of the classic euro-style games. (56:35)
This week on Board Games with Scott, I’m looking at the granddaddy eurogame, Die Macher. Die Macher is a heavy procedural strategy game that takes about 5 hours to play. It is complex with several interlocking systems, and becuase of the complexity, has been the most-requested game so far here at BGWS.
That said, this is also a long video – it’s almost an hour. (Yes, I realize the files are large, but it’s an hour of video!) I’ve tried to the essentials and have a sample turn in there at the end to help you put everything together.
