I got to play this at the Gathering, having never played the original game, and overall, I was disappointed with it. The concept is a sound one, but there really isn’t much control, as the game state changes very rapidly and mercurially. You do your best to judge how things will go and then hope for the best, but the process isn’t a very satisfying one. It’s not a bad game, but not one I have much interest in playing again. Rating: Neutral.
Superb review of Golem! I just played it for the first time on 5/27/22… This past Friday. I really enjoyed the game and Ben absolutely nailed the game play and especially the pros and cons. (The red/green confusion for the first road plagued us the entire game, maybe it’ll be fixed if there’s a second edition) The design team is responsible for creating some of my all time favorite games as also noted. The cat pic makes the article perfect. Kudos to Ben. This is the first review from him I’ve seen in the OG and it’s a home run.
