MINECRAFT: BUILDERS & BIOMES Review: Making Something New – GeekTyrant

Now, the cons of Builders and Biomes. The game has a lot to set up, a lot. Basically every card, tile, block and sheet is used, and you’ll need a lot of room to play it. Also, because it is a lot of freestanding pieces and tiles, they easily get knocked around, and the area can get pretty busy and messy after two or three turns. Another issue is the level of complexity. There are a lot of different things happening at once, and it can be pretty difficult to learn it all in one session. I would say it takes a full game to feel comfortable actually playing. Complexity can be good, but having three scoring rounds, each card having a lot of game specific symbols and mechanics for building, moving, battling and individual areas/score cards, it is just a lot to handle all at once.

Even though my cons section is almost as large as my pros section, it in no way means this game isn’t fun and pretty cool. It may have a heavy learning curve just to know what you’re doing, but that is normal for the board game world. Overall, it is a pretty fun game and for sure worth trying out, just be patient and pay attention.
