Some games are so beautiful, they get your attention right away. Quality component, vibrant colors, attractive board. It all comes together so well you can’t help but want to know more about it. Yes I know that sounds shallow and no I don’t ever buy a game just because of how pretty it looks but if a game is already well designed and fun and it also looks gorgeous, that definitely makes a game move up on my must buy list.
Jamaica is one of those game. The first time I heard about this game was on the Dice Tower network, it was one of their top ten lists and Zee Garcia could not stop talking about how gorgeous this game is. He also put this game on his top 10 games of all-time list, those two factors made me want to watch a gameplay video of Jamaica and I was sold.
