The Quacks of Quedlinburg Review

Yes I don't have a great history with the games from this designer. But everyone was raving about Quacks and it won the Kennerspiel and that made me think "hang on.......Kennerspiel"??

With that category being more for strategic games I was certainly intrigued to know why a simple bag building game went in there rather than the Spiel, not that those awards are much use these days anyway other than to sell games.

So is Quacks worth all the buzz? Has Wolfgang made a genuinely good game for me? Should the catch-up mechanisms get a serious re-write?

Also I had a play around with the Lumetri Colour Correction settings on Premiere Pro for this video to try and make the colour more vibrant and warmer compared to the fairly cold normal output from the camera - did it improve it? Let me know what you think!
