- proper n. Alternative spelling of Elfland.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Bought the game called Elfenland, which is out of print but I got it in mint condition.
Unlike other mid-range Euro-games, however, such as Elfenland, Rheinlander, and so on, the rule complexity to game-play ratio is right, making it a notch above the typical over-produced, underwhelming Euro-game.
Perhaps I was just too used to the quickness and simplicity of the streamlined standard Elfenland, or perhaps I had built up my expectations for Elfengold too high after tracking it's intractably high prices on the second hand market for years, but whatever the reason, in the end I'll stick with the base game; and so ends this quest for the expansion that held the promise of returning the game to its original form.
But despite my general predilection for complex games, it turns out I actually prefer Elfenland without the extra complexity and length added by Elfengold.
I enjoy Elfenland reasonably well as a light-hearted gateway game and obvious precursor to Ticket to Ride.
