Wow – 4 more positive reviews of Belfort!

I’m ecstatic to see that there are still more reviews coming out for Belfort, and that more and more people are enjoying it.

The first review comes from someone that’s been outside of our expected target demographic: Moms (well, maybe besides our own!). The website A Mom’s Take does a review from a Mom’s perspective and said:

We played a 3-player game of Belfort and we were all able to grasp the concept and actions in the game really quickly which meant even the first time playing the game was really fun!

Next up, we mentioned previously that Bruno Faidutti liked Belfort, and now he’s done his official review and has even included it in his Ideal Game Library! Wow! Here’s an excerpt:

All this sound, and is, very typical, but the game is richer and deeper than it looks, while still being fluid and fast paced.

Thirdly, a pithy review from the site Dice Slam with these fine words:

Belfort is deceptively complex looking because there are three game boards (Calendar board, Resource board and the main Game Board), but is quite intuitive to learn.

Finally a review popped up on Snackbar Games website. He even picked Belfort as his #3 game of 2011! Nice! Here’s a sample of what his review:

There’s a lot going on here, obviously, but every aspect of it adds up to one of the best experiences I’ve had in gaming all year. Put your elves, dwarves, and gnomes to work (no trolls allowed!) and seek out this game as soon as possible.

Unbelievable. Thanks so much to everyone for playing our game and for your kind words. We’re stoked that you’re enjoying it!

We continued to be pleasantly shocked by all the favourable reviews Belfort has been getting. Two more reviews have just popped up – and they both like it!

The first is from Dice Slam, a new site devoted to board game reviews. Under the ‘Thumbs Up’ section he calls Belfort his Game of the Year! Read the entire review here!

Secondly we have a review/first impression from Giant Fire Breathing Robot’s Geek Insight. Amongst the things he mentioned liking:

I absolutely love the interaction of worker placement and area majority.

Oh how I’m looking forward to more plays.


Thanks for playing – and thanks for taking the time to share your thoughts!
