TAPESTRY (Stonemaier Games, 1 to 5 players, ages 12 and up, 90-120 minutes; $99)
The most striking thing about Tapestry when you open the box is the collection of model buildings – from little squat things to chunky towers. (There’s a handy diagram on the side of the box to help you put them back into the correct slots. I can’t decide whether this is excellent attention to detail or deeply condescending – fitting differently-shaped pieces into the right slots is only a challenge for three-year-olds, isn’t it?) The models explain two things about the game: why the box is so deep and why it’s so expensive.
