#66: Elfenland

Alan Moon's first Spiel des Jahres winner was a re-working of his classic game, Elfenroads (long OOP). At its heart, Elfenland is a traveling salesman problem, but with the added delight of dealing with the actions of other players. The spectacular artwork from Doris Mattias makes this a wonderful gaming experience. (If you really want to play the more gamer-y Elfenroads, you can hunt down a copy of Amigo's expansion to Elfenland, entitled Elfengold.)

Scott Tullace: "My favorite elf game."

Susan Rozmiarek: "A sentimental favorite."

The Elfenland board is wonderful! It's a lot of fun just looking over the huge board and imagining the world created. Plus, it's a fun game in its own right.

I think Susan R. really hit on something here: It's a sentimental favorite because really, it can't fit into any other category as a favorite!
