The Taverns of Tiefenthal
This is a fascinating game of attracting visitors to your village tavern. It's designed in modules which players can add in to make the game more complex as they become comfortable with ther game's mechanisms. Though I suspect experienced gamers will be happy to start with all modules included.
Players have a deck of cards to manage, but their actions each round are powered by dice that are drafted between the players. What's more, players can spend their cash to upgrade their tavern, staff and beer supplies or spend beer to attract new guests (cards). Acquiring new cards is key as that's where the victory points are.
The modules add things like variable starting positions, different guests and reputation scores. As far as I'm concerned, you've got to like any game that involves serving beer – with or without schnapps!
