Cover of the Snowdonia deluxe Master Set: a scematic of a mountain against a dark blue backgroundSnowdonia (deluxe Master set)

Snowdonia was my top game of 2012 and this huge package is a brilliant new edition of the game. Starting with the fundamentals, the basic game is about constructing the Tramroad railway up Mount Snowdon. Players have a limited number of workers with which to do things and need to manage and increase their stocks of rubble, stone, iron and steel. Not to mention managing what they score points for...

The tempo of the game depends on the weather (your options are limited when the fog comes down, while rain just slows things down a bit), giving you very different challenges as the weather follows a different pattern each time you play. Phew!

Now we can start getting complicated. The Master Set includes all the expansions and promos published since the original game. These move the action to different locations (the Jungfrau, the Daffodil Line...), add extra locomotives (Puffing Billy, The Candace Camille...) incorporate oddities (Mrs Larkin's Washing Machine!) and so on.

The deluxe element is the quality of the components, of course. This all makes a hefty package: a big box (it may be a standard 30 cms square, but it's 15 deep) that comes in at over 3 Kgs. Phew again!

Note: some of the cards were misprinted in production. NSKN is reprinting the affected cards and the resulting 'fix packs' should arrive for September. I will pass these on as soon as they are available to me.

For 1-5 players, aged 10+, playing time 90 minutes: 90.00 (75.00 outside the EU)
