Riverboat posits each player as the owner of a 19th century farm on the bank of the Mississippi River. You need to organize your workers to ensure that the fields are ordered according to their type and harvested when ready so that the goods can be shipped to New Orleans.

In more detail, the game lasts four rounds, and at the start of each round players draft phase cards until they're all distributed. The phases then take place in numerical order, with the player who chose a phase being the first one to act. In the first phase, players place their workers in the fields, with each player having the same distribution of colored field tiles, but a different random placement for each player. In phase two, players organize their crops, trying to group like types together, with some fields requiring two or three workers. In phase three, players harvest crops and load riverboats, with a dock needing to be filled with all the goods of a single type before it can be loaded. In phase four, the boats are launched and players can take special actions, with additional victory points possibly coming in phase five.

    5/5
    De nos jours, il y a tellement de jeux où on est subjugué par leur inventivité mais déçu par la mise en pratique. Dans Riverboat, Michael Kiesling fait le contraire. Il ne nous bluffe pas par son inventivité mais nous surbluffe par l’équilibre de ses mécaniques. Et finalement, c’est le principal. On prend un plaisir immense à jouer à Riverboat même si ce plaisir ne provient pas de la découverte. Je rêve d’une collaboration Feld / Kiesling. Ca donnerait le jeu du siècle !

    3/5
    Si Riverboat était sorti il y a dix ans, il serait devenu une claque ludique indispensable par ses mécaniques innovantes: puzzle, ouvriers, draft. Aujourd'hui, Riverboat ressemble plus à une checklist et à un medley de mécaniques tendance. Un jeu mécanique, stratégique, profond, mais froid, tellement froid. Riverboat ne parvient pas à apporter un vent de fraîcheur. Agencement de tuiles, acquisition de contrats. Bien, mais rien de trépidant. Un jeu qui s'apparente à la couleur beige. Terne et tiède.

    4/5
    Michael Kiesling s'affranchit de plus en plus de son partenaire de toujours, Wolfgang Kramer, et cela semble plutôt lui réussir. Avec Riverboat il nous emmène sur les rives du Mississipi pour produire et transporter de la nourriture. Rien de bien nouveau en apparence et pourtant... Riverboat est un très bon jeu allemand, tendu, avec beaucoup d'interaction, et un système de scoring très réussi.
