We got to play Pipeline from Capstone Games. Click further for a first impression.
So overall, I had fun, but it reminded me a lot of Powergrid and I honestly can’t stand that game. I don’t think I’m a huge fan of economic games and this one stinks of it. Making every single dollar count while other players steal your resources just isn’t interesting for me. I do enough math during the day as a teacher!
That said, if you enjoy economic style games like Powergrid, this game will be great for you. Juggling all the options, the market, and working towards end game bonuses create for a tight experience. I really enjoyed the way the machines and pipe mechanics worked and I tried to abuse that as much as possible.
I think another play when I wasn’t so positively tired would be a good idea.
Thanks, as always, goes to Overboard Games for hosting the stream, organizing the play times, and (potentially) building the mods.
