nice and simple 18xx game. fun and quick. the simplified stock exchange was neat, and encouraging of buying and selling stocks. the board was small and tight, and there were good interaction and decisions.
cool story based game play. can end rather abruptly in single player mode. i.e. try getting hypnotized by a vampire because of the atmosphere alone, i give it a high score. the combat is rather confusing though.
decent civilization game with some very good design mechanics. The research board is a wonder of over-engineering. It plays reasonably fast for a civ game, and yet is full featured, complete with wonders, resource production, exploration and murder.
