Board Game Geek

I cannot say enough good things about this site.

It has everything. Even if you need a rules translation, it's there.

I bought DON from a supplier in Germany (shipping was twice the price of the game) and it arrived without a rules translation. I searched online at Queen Games and then gave up. I tried google. And gave up. Then I remembered that Board Game Geek sometimes has stuff like this.

And what do you know... not only do they have English rules, but they have French and a xls file that breaks down care distribution. I don't need it, but it's amazing how much people will support a smart little game like this, even when their only rating it at a 6.3.

I think this game is a 9 out of 10... and I can play it over and over again.

If someone took this mechanic and attached a real theme and a few more steps... this could be a home run.
