This review is based on digital plays of the game...

Looking back, building that last pottery had been foolhardy. Investing in the rail network would have been much more lucrative and sensible, but you had wanted to compete with your contemporaries. Maybe if you had been more careful and had planned further ahead when you first started out as an entrepreneur, things would have worked out differently. But then, nobody could have predicted the Industrial Revolution to be so transformative as it had been. Yet, overall you had done well and were certainly top Brass: Birmingham by Roxley Games.

While its normally not my type of game, I played and enjoyed the original BRASS when it came out. The rules are mostly straightforward, other than the bits about cardplay ; BIRMINGHAM is a bit fiddly in this regard as well. This version has a more straightforward map ( the original had a weird port space/connection IIRC ) . The physical version, other than an overly dark map, is very nice. The beer barrels are a nice touch. There is definitely a learning curve, esp with regards to developing tiles - in other words, using actions to throw them out rather than building them.

I'll definitely have to get myself a copy of one of the updated Brass games. Birmingham may be the choice here for me, but Lancashire also looks great.
