BrettspielWelt

Being stuck on a night shift really sucks.  But every now and then something good comes of it.  Today, while ignoring my seemingly bottomless inbox and surfing the net, I found out about Brettspielwelt.  This is a German site that allows you to play dozens of games for free via a java applet.  And by games, I mean German games.   Currently, there are about 60-70 games offered.

The wife and I just got done with a few rounds of Carcassonne followed by a few hands of Lost Cities.  Wow!  The graphics are almost as good as the originals, the game play is flawless and the price is outstanding!  (That means free.)  However, there is a downside.  If your not fluent in German, navigation can be diificult.  They do have an English front end, but once your in, its all Deutsch.  Luckily, the Boardgamegeek site has plenty of helpful articles.  While this does not replace or even come near to the fun I get from playing face to face… It’ll do in a pinch.

    Gives you a preconfigured Client to download and install. Which gives you a lot of stuff in english…. hopefully nearly all. 🙂

    So you cannot only enjoy the webpages in english you can also play in english.
