Game: First Impressions of Hansa

Eric and Karen also bought us the board game Hansa.  It's a buying and selling sort of game set in the 15th century Baltic cities.  The primary challenge of the game never having enough resources to do everything I want to do.  The rules are not really that hard, but they are a bit difficult to pick up.  We spent our first game just getting used to the mechanics.  I don't think my 7 year old could pick up this game. 

The game itself is both fun and challenging, but it is short-term, since you can't do much to prepare for the future.  And you can't even plan your next turn, since the board will probably change as the other players move.

Rating:  good game.
