A little easier than 10 Days in Europe because there's no boats but a little harder because the geography of Africa is not as well known.

Very fun game, a favorite. Definitely a good game for peace lovers in that everyone builds in their own playing area and nothing can be done to directly affect your opponent unless you manage to snag the cards they want from the market consistently. Some people don't feel it's interactive enough.

Provisional rating. While the game itself is simple, the strategy is a tough balancing act. It's difficult to choose and achieve objectives; there's not enough cards to both play to objectives and have cards to score with. Nor can you simply "go for it" or your actions will make it obvious what objectives you're trying to achieve and you can potentially lose points.

You really have to be a negotiator and a shark in this game. In a 4 player game we played the winner had twice as much money as the second place player. The winner was also the one who started the most deals and became the boss on one or two others. You also have to be involved in as many deals as possible. It's too hard to accumulate the cards you need to do deals on your own (and defend them), the game ends by the time you can get close to having the right set of cards.

Rating based on initial play with 4 players, start positions random with the 5th removed per the instructions. I started in Rome, something I would not have chosen to do for the first play, as I prefer to play a commerce or building role rather than military. We determined the game would have been better with either 3 or 5 players, as the player with Egypt had plenty of income from cities and the best opportunity for expansion; he won as a result.

We were all tripped up by the limitation of available buildings, and played the first several rounds forgetting that we would not be able to continue to build caravans and cities in perpetuity. There wasn't enough military action on Egypt to slow that player down, and my military actions never got further than Greece. The game felt fairly static after the buildings ran out; director roles didn't change much. There wasn't much expansion and it was a bit late in the game for some to switch gears to a military offensive to gain cities and resources. Still, it was enjoyable, and I'd like to play again... knowing now what I'd do differently.

Very, very random and chaotic but lots of fun. I suppose you could really try to observe which gems are on your opponent's expert cards and play gems to devalue their Mona Lisa but it's not that easy to do when playing this game quickly. You tend to focus on trying to play your gems defensively instead.

Interesting and quick game. Has a real 'screw your neighbor' factor that can make obtaining goal cards an exercise in frustration. The most common gotcha is losing high value cards to special ability cards. There's fair bit of randomness as you play from your own deck of 25 cards but only have three in hand at a time. You often end up wasting your best cards on crappy goal cards because you can only work with your draw of three.

Complex but not heavy, nice theme. After two plays I feel like I've learned it well enough to start thinking about different strategies.

Very cute -- the sheep rock! Good game, especially if you can think spatially and anticipate your opponents' moves. However, you're easily hosed by the whims of other players who don't think that way and choose their actions randomly just to create chaos.

Bought this while on vacation in Austria. Some years later, played the Cheops version. Thought it was challenging and pretty cool.

Nearly new in the box. It's only ever been played a few times and is just an item for the collection at this point.

First play 6/27. We played the Faidutti political game and the Garfield bidding game. Both were very good and we're looking forward to exploring the other games.

This one's a hoot, I really like the theme and the setup. Race to get all three parts of a space suit and unlock the fuel program for the escape pod. Watch out for others on the space station trying to do the same thing.

Purchased as a birthday gift for my dad, who never played it. I retrieved it from him some years later with the intention of playing but just always ended up using someone else's copy. Good thing, as now I have a nice collector's game.

This one's a blast. My group loves it and gets quite vicious during toss all and toss milk plays. Some of us have ended up with jammed fingers and scratches.

Finally played 3/24/07. Loved it! I thought the game had some great mechanics and was fairly well balanced. While it took over an hour to go through the rules, once we started playing the game moved along quickly with little down time between turns. The actual game play was not nearly as complex as we thought it would be. There were some nasty negative events - like the kill a noble card. Fortunately, the timing of the negative events didn't have a huge effect on our game but that might not be the case next time. I had been plodding along capturing cities, feeling like I was in the game but definitely not winning. Isaac was amasssing huge armies and was poised to begin a classic crushing when Jared gave me a card that compelled the recipient to purchase 1 victory point per round or pass the card. At the time, my position seemed benign (he could have given the card to anyone) but taxation happened twice afterwards and I received enough money from the cities I held to use the card for 2 rounds. In the end, Isaac's offensive would have won him the game but I won instead... by a single victory point.

Quick paced, cute racing game in a great box that's actually used in the game. Nice art. Quick witted people with good memory or those with photographic memory do well. Not for plodding thinkers.

Played two 3 player games. Fun game with some pretty good strategy though I think it would be better (and more difficult) with more players. Looking forward to trying a 5 player game.
