Our man Dave takes a close look at 2000 Hagen Dorgathen, Uwe Rosenberg hand-management / set collection game Babel. Recommended for the 2001 Spiel des Jahres, Babel sees players making best use of members of various tribes of the ancient world. These tribes will build temples, exploit (or exterminate) their opponent’s work force, destroy or steal their opponent’s temples and otherwise do whatever it takes to build the tallest temples to win the game.
Let’s see what Dave thought of the game, after he – luckily – picked it up in the bargain bin.
