Isle of Skye

(2-5 players; 40 minutes; ages 8+)

Isle of Skye is one of those pearls that used old game mechanics (from the excellent game Carcassonne) and polished them up into a game of high replayability. Parts of the game have simultaneous actions from all players which means that there is not a lot of sitting around even while playing with 5 players. While Carcassonne was only an outstanding game with two players, Isle of Skye is outstanding for 2-5 players.

I think the universe is pure geometry – basically, a beautiful shape twisting around and dancing over space-time.
