Drunter und Druber
Publisher: Hans im Gluck
Drunter & Drüber is a normal game with a crazy theme. Once you get past the idea of laying rivers and roads over buildings that already exist, voting on whether toilets can be covered by tiles, and the totally wacky illustrations, this game becomes a tactical tile-laying game with a simple theme: keep the tiles from covering up your special squares.
I got a huge drubbing the first time I played this game and had all but my lowest-value building covered, but still I had a good time. I think that's what this game's biggest asset is - it's so crazy that you simply have to have fun.
Drunter & Drüber doesn't give much scope for strategy in a four-player game; this is probably different with only two players. Having secret missions - the type of buildings you want to save - makes the game more intriguing as you try to work out what everyone else's agenda is.
This game is totally silly, but nonetheless it's a good way of wasting an hour or two.
