Rajas of the Ganges; A Beautiful Dice Based Worker Placement System

Rajas of the Ganges. What a fun game. But also a game I got rid of at one point, so you can't trust anything I say really. 


I first played Rajas a good 6 months ago, and I enjoyed it...but then time passed and I didn't feel the need to table it again. So I got rid of it. It then became one of the few games that I regret..that I wonder if I was wrong. Perhaps I was too hasty. This happens here and there and I usually and sadly find that my first impressions are right. Usually when I get a game back, I get rid of it again. But Rajas is one of the exceptions. 


I took advantage of most of our game nights being online to give it a shot, to play it on Yucata.de, to experience it again. And so with minimal rulebook prep, we jumped online, I went over my recollection of how to play, and we started up.

Turns out I really like Rajas of the Ganges.


I'm not sure why though. It's a worker placement game with a lot of dice...place a worker, pay wealth, dice or nothing and take an action. Will you move up the river? Will you build out your person tableau? Will you load up on dice to prep for next round? There's a lot you can do but it mostly involved rolling lots of colorful dice and min-maxing your way to victory.


And yet it works. It's deep enough to offer meaningful choices, and yet accessible enough to teach in 15 minutes and play in 60-90. I love the experience that this game is delivering, and now I just want there to be an expansion.

  • Absolutely love Rajas. The first real euro game that I have ever played. For some reason, while at the table with pretty experienced players, I won the game. It was one of those moments where everything slowed down and I saw these amazing combo turns that really helped me win. I always wished they had expanded more than the 2-3 mini tile expansions. Perhaps even some type of variable player powers. Either way, just a very smooth and fun game to play
