Here’s a look at Louie Puccioni and a mule, farming in Dry Creek Valley’s @puccioni_vineyards in the early 20th century! Last week, Glenn Proctor (Louie’s grandson) joined Ann Petersen from @drycreekvalleywines, Vicky Farrow from @amistavineyards and Karissa Kruse on KSRO’s Off the Vine to talk about his family’s history of winegrowing. If you didn’t the broadcast live, you can listen on our site (link in profile).
Viticulture with the Tuscany expansion is LEGIT! Wow, Tuscany adds just the right amount of new stuff plus a new board. What I most like about it is that it makes the game better for two players. We usually play with two and the base game was great with four and just ok with two. Tuscany fixed that by putting some of the bonus actions on the two player space. Tuscany has three modules, all of them are Permanent adds to the game for us. We loved the special workers with their overalls and bonnets. The varied worker powers will be awesome to explore. We loved the building deck, there seemed to be some really cool buildings available. Third, we enjoyed the new board with 4 seasons and a little area control map. The map added a nice new way to score points, but they score after the game ends, a neat idea. If you like viticulture then you should consider buying Tuscany especially if you play predominantly with two. This game went down to the third tie-breaker... Lara won. #bgg#boardgamegeek#boardgames#games#viticulture#tuscany#viticulturetuscany#tabletopgames#nerds#marriedgaming#meeples
