There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

Fairly clever worker placement mechanic that is enjoyable and works well. Plays quite quickly as well with plenty of tough choices.

I really enjoyed my first and only play of Asara. I wasn't really expecting much as it looked like sort of the same old thing. Stragely enough, it was sorta the same old thing, but for whatever reason still felt fresh and compelling. I really liked how players need to "follow suit" within the worker placement mechanic. The game _is_ a bit fiddly and probably wont change your life, but I thought it was a stand out effort and very much worth the 60-90 minutes it took to play.

Asara is a really nifty idea that I'm not sure has the best execution. The idea? Worker placement where your "workers" are cards, and that placing at the same location requires that one follow suits. Brilliant. Why has no one thought of this before?

But it would be awesome to see it employed in a better game.

Oh, Asara is just fine. Set collection in the form of building towers. (Closest approximation I can think of is Palazzo. In fact "Palazzo as a worker placement game" is probably the best one-line description I can think of.) But it lacks a certain amount of excitement. Though I do like the central area where you commit yourself to building a specific amount of pieces, no more, no less. Timing there can be critical.

I only played it as a two-player and would like to try it with three to see if it's appreciably different. For now, yes, I wouldn't mind owning this. (It's a Kramer and I'm a badge-owning Kramer Freak.) But I look forward to seeing the next iteration of this mechanism.

A great "worker placement" game, although it barely fits in that genre. This game is more fun with more people: while it is enjoyable with two, Asara really hits its stride with three or four. Beautifully designed and semi-original.
