Great Plains is a two-player area control game designed by Trevor Benjamin and Brett J. Gilbert, and published by Lookout Games. In Great Plains, players take simple turns, placing one of their pieces on the board next to one of their previously played pieces. Once every piece is placed on the board, the game ends. The goal is to control the most meadow sections on the board at game’s end. There is very little rules, very little luck, and a whole lotta strategy and fun. I picked up a copy at my FLGS (www.dicedropgames.com) and then I got a few plays in. I recorded an unboxing video, a playthrough and a review with an overview of gameplay.
