Horribly underrated game, probably because of its harsh learning curve.

Even though I've only played this one once, I knew immediately that I liked it. Components = GREAT! Monopoly-like feel without being just a dice fest. Involves blind bidding and strategy. Can have a kingmaker problem though, but not enough to detract from my rating.

Significantly underrated. The only downside to this game is its for only 3-4 players.

A much better themed game than San Marco. I always find this game tight and usually goes down to the final round to determine a winner.

Thats a majority game I like because it always tough to win. I like the manner the game developes. It' s not a heavy game but for a relatively short game it is strategic enough.

Best played with the full contingent of 4 players. Still one of my favourite "bluffing" and double-guessing games which leaves a tickling sensation in my stomach each time I play it. Easily the best game of the Goldsieber series.

I really enjoy the bidding component, prediction element, and strategizing as you see what's coming up next, but who will go where? This is a fantastic hidden gem.

Pretty good influence game. There is blind bidding, which I don't usually like, but it's not a complete crap shoot - you can bid with some strategy.

Since it's classic Goldsieber, the bits in this game are fantastic. Heck, you have cardboard 'hats' that are placed on big wooden pawns to show majority ownership! This one isn't the 'best' area majority game out there, but it certainly ranks as the one with some of the nicest bits.

I really like this game. The hidden bidding is surprisingly strategic, and the ability to change the outcome with a "rolling" addition aspect is also very cool. I still haven't figured out how possible it is to reel in a front-runner, but I'm sure more plays will help to iron that out. It can be a bit of a brain-burner.

After a few more plays, I think this might be one of those that is much better with 4 than 3.

Good bluffing game, with lots of guessing and also some luck. Keeping the leader from winning at the endgame is not always an easy task. It allows a little planning and plays well in around 1 hour. Maybe it would be even better if it allowed 5 (maybe even 6) players.

This is a great Colovini game, perhaps one of his best! It feels less abstract than most of his other designs, and had some real interesting mechanics. Why haven't people made more noise about this game? I think this one flew under the radar somehow! Nice game. Very underrated.

I've only played the game once and liked it a lot more than I expected because I am usually not too crazy about blind bidding.

Good area control mechanism. You really need to pay attention to the order of voting. You can get some good combinations if you can take the areas properly. It's sometimes more important to get first in a region you don't need immediately than to take second in one you need.
