The second game in Shadi Torbey’s Oniverse. Onirim was the first game, but Urbion was the first game that I played and reviewed. It’s a solo card game and was my number twenty-nine most favourite game of all time in last year’s, 2015, list. What do I think of the game after all this time?
Well, it’s a one to two-player card game, but it isn’t fun with two. I still think it’s a very good game, but I just don’t play solo games that often anymore. Urbion is, together with Onirim, definitely the best game in the series. Castellion and Sylvion just aren’t that good. The fact that I don’t play this game that much is mostly because when I play games nowadays I want to play multiplayer games. When I play solo, it’s mostly play board game implementations on my iPad.
I do still recommend this game when somebody wants to play a challenging card game. It’s unique in its gameplay and look. I don’t know if they will come with a new edition, in a box like Onirim, Sylvion and Castellion, with loads of expansions and a cool, big, plastic meeple. I do hope so.
