Manifest is a solid, smart euro game – light enough for family fun, interesting enough for more demanding gamers.
The mechanics feel familiar,
but combine into an elegant game
with distinct charm. I for one, would rather play Manifest than Ticket to Ride, for instance,
and I can see people having a lot of fun with this one.
Manifest is one of those games that could be played on the same game night as Carcassonne and Ticket to Ride with a group of gateway gamers. It is simple to learn and play, but has a good amount
of planning and strategy – as well as
of laugh out loud moments
When you open the box you know instantly that you are in for top rate experience. This is a game that is going to be passed down from generation to generation.
I like the conundrum factor of the Action Cards. Easy to pick up, fun ‘take that’ factor...
The delivery model gives it an extra dimension to Ticket to Ride. I love the balance between attack / defend and fulfilling the contracts. Great fun. A game that I know I will enjoy playing for years to come.
You wouldn’t want to miss this for all the tea in China! ... the game generates some surprising tension.
The artwork and theme is outstanding – a lot of attention has gone into details such as the historical accuracy of
the era and the art work on both the board and cards
Absolutely love this game. Perfect balance of strategy and ease of learning/teaching
There are some really cool things that come into Manifest, and it makes the game a lot of fun. A really enjoyable game, easy to teach, the rulebook is very well written. You can be up and ready to play in just a matter of minutes.
