Century: Eastern Wonders (2018) - Accessibility Teardown – Meeple Like Us
The phenomenal quality of modern tabletop games is a blessing and a curse for a reviewer. It means there’s almost always a reason to be enthusiastic – very few games, save for those marketed and playtested exclusively on Kickstarter – are genuinely bad. At worst, most games are simply mediocre or ‘not for me’. However, it also occasionally means a game that would have stood out as exceptional a few years ago ends up with a review that says ‘Great, but why would you buy it?’. Century: Eastern Wonders falls into that awkward category. We gave it four stars in our review but can’t think of many reasons why you’d go out of your way to pick it up over any number of other equally great games.
