This game was HUGE hit with my mom as well as my daughters (11 & 14). When I asked their rating, they all said 10 with no hesitation. I really enjoyed it too - the board and components are colorful and nicely done, it has just enough strategy to make it interesting, it moves quickly and it's easy to learn. Great game!

This was my favourite game played at Essen. I was planning to wait and purchase it once it was released here, but after trying it out, I decided to re-arrange my luggage to fit one more game! I was surprised by how well this scaled to 2 players, it was really fun that way. The artwork is very nice, and combined with the unusually shaped board it looks impressive when it is all setup. I love the simple, intuitive ruleset, it is very easy to teach. Another bonus is that downtime between turns is very short, and the game plays fairly quickly. I think the game is deeper than the simple rules make it seem (especially once the advanced mode is added), but further plays will allow me to judge this better.

Fantastic game. Gorgeous game board and pieces. Simple mechanics, enough depth to be challenging but very accessible for the family. Really ticks all the boxes. If the cards were larger it would be near perfect for me.

Components: Attractive board, utilizing every inch of space. Cool artwork on the various styles of tower; they each feel quite distinctive. Quality cards; one of the few games where half-sized cards work better than would full-sized cards. The differing heights between windows and middle sections makes it difficult to quickly judge the heights of other towers.

Experience: Immediately fun. The color mechanism is brilliant and incredibly interesting. There are so many possibilities at the beginning of the season, but as the season progresses and each suit gets declared, I must be more and more careful with how I use my cards.

Some of the areas of the board are much better than other areas, but there are several such areas. The window shop is sure to be available for a player in a pinch who can't find any better way to make points.

The influx of cards and cash each season is great, to get me back into the game despite what happened in the previous round.

I dislike the asymmetry between tops and bottoms, and between windows and middle sections, with tops and windows being better than their counterpart, but without a difference in price. There is no reason to buy a middle section over a window except in desperation.

The game length is perfect.

Jogo fácil de explicar, fácil de jogar, além de muito bonito. Um bom jogo de entrada e que agrada os jogadores mais exigentes. No jogo devemos construir mais torres e torres mais altas usando as cartas como dinheiro e com várias formas de conseguir o dinheiro ( cartas). porém não dá para fazer tudo o que se deseja numa rodada e são apenas quatro rodadas, quatro turnos, chamados de ano, pelo jogo. independe de idioma.

Underrated, beautiful game. Yep, the coins and tokens are a little thin. Fun and easy (**but not too easy) family/couples/friends game, utilizing worker placement and set collection, in a mildly Arabesque setting. Or: Excellent, but what do I know.

I really enjoy this one, it's tactical yet easy enough for a lot of people to play. Chosen actions become colour coded so prioritizing is essential. On the other hand the race for the biggest or most towers is also on. Really superb game.

I was so smitten by this game that in the midst of my first play through I up and ordered it on Amazon through my tablet...gorgeous board and components, wonderful theme of these architects building towers in a fantasy city, and plenty of strategy despite it being a lighter Euro. Got it for my family, who will also love it.

Juego muy entretenido, se juega en una hora o menos, y tiene elementos suficientes para tener tensión y diversión, intentando montar más torres y más altas. Recomendable para todo el mundo, sea jugón o jugador ocasional

Expansiones le dan un pequeño toque diferenciador, que se pueden añadir o no a gusto de todos

Interesting twist on worker placement, using cards as workers. All cards played in each area must be of the same color, and that makes the game. You really must pay attention to what the other players are doing, both to the cards they are playing and to which towers they are building. Pretty good game, simple and elegant, with some luck of the draw but enough strategy, and beautiful artwork.

While not exactly earth-shatteringly innovative, Asara still manages to feel like a well designed game. The collect and build mechanic is not anything you haven't seen before and the placement of buyer cards is interesting, but not entirely unique. Despite that, Asara does everything well and the sum total is a game that, while not breaking any new ground, is still good fun to play - which, ultimately, is far more important.

After 5 plays I think it's a darn good game without lots of rules and game play goes fast and smooth. Most games are very close with my only 3 player game finishing with only 2 points between 1st and 3rd.

A beautiful game with several tried and true mechanisms. I find the hand management aspect especially engaging. If you have a "long suit" how do you use it to make it tough on your opponent. Some games are too long. Some not nearly long enough, but this one seems to be just right insofar as duration is concerned.

Juego de colocación de trabajadores que usa en vez de marcadores de madera (meeples) usa cartas de color . Consiste en comprar las partes de una torre y construir la torre mas larga, primero que los demás. Requiere de estrategia y suerte, ya que depende del color de la primera carta ubicada en cada sección, la opción de comprar la parte que se necesita . Si no se tiene la carta del color se puede cambiar por dos cartas de colores diferentes (lo que es costoso), ya que se esta sacrificando alguna otra sección. Confrontacional, (ya que el primero que llega tiene las mejores posibilidades de conseguir bloquear a los demás) Sencillo de armar, rápido de jugar. Buen diseño gráfico.

This is an exellent game, completely underrated. It's a worker placement game in which you have to follow suit. Instead of meeples you use cards. It also has some elements of area control when you evaluate your towers. Very beautiful components. Easy to understand and straight forward. You don't have to refer to the rulebook every turn.

Good Game - basically worker placement with cards. Much preferred over the worker placement dice games. Here you can still choose an option even if you don't have the color led, but you have to pay 2 cards. Hits the 90 minutes sweet spot for gaming as well.

What a little gem! I'd play this over Ticket to Ride any day as a fun, light, fast, or intro-to-newbies title. It's quick to teach and pick up, and there are definitely a lot of choices and strategeries. Plus, who doesn't like "erecting" all these phallic symbols for everyone to enjoy in all their glory?? It's too bad that the capacity's only 4, though - up to 5 would be nice, if only to include more people.

*Love it though I did (those colorful phalli!), I traded it away for lack of table time.*

**But then I reacquired a copy via trade!

Beautiful board and components. Simple enough gameplay to make this a great family game.

It's effectively a worker placement game but this is achieved by placing cards into fixed positions on the board. The action is taken immediately.

These actions typically involve taking one or building several sections of a coloured tower. Money can also be picked up via the card placement actions.

Overall I really like this game. It plays quickly at around 60 minutes so leaves plenty of time for other games in an evening.
