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.
Caylus - a true game true to its fame. Simple and easy rules to grasp (contrary to the bit intimidating manual!) and many paths to victory (without any luck) make this one of the best games I have played or seen so far!
