I'm finally playing Maracaibo. So far I'm in two minds about it. I like the mechanics, going round for action fields, the card play, the different ways to score. But. Set up is taking too much time and the combat resolution (especially for Jean, the bot) is a day job.
I've also bought the Maracaibo app for the tablet, and there those things are done automatically and the game is more fun for me.
I hope that the downsides will get less over time. As this special tile is not available digitally. And of course, I won't play without it.
