Valdora has some of strategy, but not much conflict. Each player works to get tools and complete commissions which earn points. Completing commissions results in controlling workshops. The game doesn't involve taking money or goods from other players (like Monopoly) so each player builds their score somewhat independently. Conflict can occur when two players are racing to controll a particular workshop.
This is a game our whole family is enjoying. We have fans of Settlers and fans of Ticket to Ride, but not everyone likes those games. This one satisfies all of our family of five.
The basic concept of Valdora is that it is a pickup-and-deliver game. Players are adventurers, wandering Valdora, the Valley of Gold, trying to bring back valuable gems that meet the requirements of commissions (job cards) you've received. Along your journey are various items of equipment (e.g. chisel, pick axe) that you can use to help you out. Who will best be able to conquer the logistical challenges of Valdora, and be acknowledged as the most successful adventurer?
Right from the moment you open the box, it's obvious that Valdora has an immediate aesthetic appeal. And fortunately the game-play lives up to the high expectations created by the highly attractive components. It features very quick turns, thus avoiding any downtime for the players. Despite relatively straight-forward rules, there are meaningful strategic decisions to be made. There are many ways to get points, ensuring multiple paths to victory.
It's not for those who want their games to be free of any luck, or want the interaction with their opponents to be more direct or vicious. But as far as euros go, Valdora is a very solid family game that makes excellent use of the pickup and deliver mechanic, and offers easy-to-learn gameplay while still ensuring that players have to make decisions that matter. Those who enjoy the challenge of logistics and optimization will especially take to the puzzle-like challenge that Valdora offers. Special mention should be made of the innovative book mechanic, which has players flip cards like pages of a book, and creates additional interest.
All in all, Valdora has many of the qualities that make it ideal as a gateway game or family game, while still offering enough challenge for gamers to enjoy. Beautiful and fun for families - what more could you ask? - EndersGame @ BGG
