Very BALANCED game : it's about auctions on special cards which break the rules of jewels auctions.

NOT A KINGMAKER GAME : you can react against players who dominate by choosing the right place to bid for jewels (you can have plenty cards and can't be able to use them, and you can have few of them and by good management win some auctions)

JUST BE CAREFUL WITH THE GREAT COMBOS the players can combine

Highly Recommended for players and poker/auction/magic theme fans

I like this game. Plenty of bidding strategies and resource management. It played very quickly with 4 players and the endgame was usually a very close contest. Way more of a gamers game than Carcassonne.

I originally had this rated a 10, but lowered it because with 6 players it is just too darn long.

This game does NOT play well with 3. That said...

I love this game! It's pretty and the way the strength of your powers are tied to the amount you bid is so sweet. It seems a perfect game with 5. If someone gets just the right combination of cards, it's tough for a few go arounds but it gets remedied eventually. I'm kicking around the idea of not starting with any powers at all (or maybe one) rather than the written rule of two with the option of replacing one or both.

My copy has paste-ups on my cards which increases the enjoyment of this game even more than I thought possible while we were slogging through the printed translations.

Outstanding two tiered auction game. If you're not careful,
certain combos of powers can be unbalancing though.

I really liked this one. The bidding mechanic was novel and the spell effects were interesting. Though there is german text on the cards, the symbology is excellent and we didn't need to reference translations after the first few rounds.

Great game! Nice board and bits. Very fun, but a few players in my group think some of the of the cards are too powerful.
