Join me for PBW Hacienda
I went with the asymmetric map, the one I believe is included on the backside of the board in the published game. There are other options to upload custom maps made with the Westpark Gamers' map generator program. So, lots of good opportunities to try this game under better conditions. You heard in my last podcast how I've been disappointed with Hacienda, but maybe these new maps will make a big difference.
The game options on the website offer a score-as-you-go variant (which I picked), and an alternate market scoring variant (which I avoided).
P.S. I wrote a show outline for the next podcast last night. A new recording is coming soon, honest! :-)
