I am a playtester for this wonderful game
After around 15 plays I can safely say the theme of the game blend with the mechanics well and the game is well worth the time you spend with it. Being a 30-minute filler type it does exactly what it is supposed to - give you a solitaire experience which is different with every new game, mainly due to the random order of the Event cards.

Based on the cards you have to make tactical choices every turn and you need to balance the various resources in the game to be able to get to the desired goal. Yes, the game can end in round 3 if you are not careful enough (yes, happened to me already , or it can last the full 25 rounds... Suit yourself!

My rating is preliminary prior purchase. But based on my experience it will not change I like the simple mechanics, which are wrapped in a nice theme (that appeals to me) and follow through to the endning quite nicely.

A very good game both in style of play and quality. I have nothing against the graphics or craftsmanship. Gather gather, world-builders!

Played only twice, but my rating stands. Mainly because it is "revolutionary" in its own way and because of the multitude of options you have in-game as well as pre-game.

A nice game with many twists during the later rounds, when you can prevent someone from reaching their destination exit! Lavaaaaaaaaaa!

Twilight Imperium 3rd ed. is a beast. This is the beast's little brother. Younger, with a different (and shorter) haircut, less clothes on and without those shining sunglases.

But nonetheless, intriguing!

This game surprised me! From the initial info and graphics I expected a dry euro-style game. Which it kinda is, but man, with loads of tactics and player interaction!

You can basically screw your opponents if you can/want to, or you can try to survive in a District (protected by your Baron), just barely overpowering that previous player who thought he would have the majority there...

Even if the components are typical euro-style (wooden cubes and big "sliced" cubes forming the tower + cardboard money and a pawn), the game is nicely illustrated and after a bit of getting used to it also easy to comprehend.

This is all after playing one game, so take it with a grain of salt, but already in this first game I gained sort of a "feeling" for the game and the many strategies and tactics you can/must employ, if you want to emerge victorious in the end.

True, there is a luck factor in the Action cards, but that is only a minor quibble for those who do not like luck in their games. The only other thing is the auction for the roles, but also this is an interesting aspect.

Overall, thumbs up!

Nice little (as per the Box size, surely not the content!) game, set in 10th century Britain. I like the combination of Tile-uncovering, movement and special Items to be found/searched for. Provides interesting and tense gameplay for up to 5 players.

Will gladly play anytime!

Gimmick? Yes. Unnecessary for any other reason than visual flare? Yes. But despite all that - do I want to play Eastern Front on a real winter map? Double Yeah!!!
I now own two, as a result of a lucky recent trade... Enter Overlord scenarios!

A nice little (by means of box, not gameplay!) game that is locally produced - and for that matter very well produced! Nice graphics and components add to the overall experience and gameplay!

I like the game. Partly because I like classical music, but the most enjoyment comes from the overall game-flow. Decide when and which buildings you buy, which operas you then want to invest in and perform, decide on your budget for all expenses and at the same time try to get some victory points! All this is intertwined in a beautifuly presented eurogame.

UPDATE after first play:
Fulfilled my expectations! You start low, slowly building up, in the second Season you start generating more money and already can think about using Esperto for Victory Points and in the third Season it is all about maximizing your Victory point count as much as possible. I want to play more!

Interesting social deduction game, which is not overly long (due to limited rounds) and can get pretty involved if people start analyzing things. But this can only happen after a few games under the players' belts, as at first you do not try to strategize during your choices (too much). And the game experience also depends on the group itself - whether the players like to throw (sometimes outrageous) accusations around, or only play it mechanically. In the latter case it would be pretty boring. In the former - way to go! Have yet to try it myself, but will definitely bring it to a future game session.

A translation of Rummy to a more tactile feel - I own an older version with plastic stands and plastic tiles, which are quite durable and nice to play with.

This wonderful cooperative game is not for anyone or any group. It needs dedicated people, willing to think tactically and work together on the solutions for the ever incoming problems. Also the realtime timer might raise the tension in the game - and discourage some "thinkers".

But if you like furious action, a lot of shouting around and "playing by your guts" rather than thinking about a move for 5 minutes, go for it!

Nice and light card game with "take that" and "guess what they want" mechanics. The more players the more fun. A nice filler for 15-20 minutes of free time!

Tense game where every move counts (or may). Feels heavy, but is not that much as many other "wargames". And is not a wargame per-se

Very nice! I like how you have to decide if you want to wait that next turn, or take the animals NOW before someone else does. Also you have to manage your Zoo (well, this is not a business simulation, mind you) and try to get the best out of what you are offered.

A very nice family game and if you have kids around, an instant win!
