This is Brass lite or steam heavy. I like the feel of the game. This has the same feel as many of the train network connection games that I like and want. This is now a must buy for me. We did have some problems in the scoring when goods were moved across opponents connections but that is because it was the first time we played it

I like it. Superficially similar to Age of Steam, but has different mechanics that make it lighter.

Pretty much a train game, just building canals instead of track. Not a bad train game either, but actually a fairly good one. My only gripe is the down time. It's no good planning too much since what the other players do (taking three cards, taking contracts, etc.) can make a huge difference on what can be done on one's turn. Definitely worth playing again.

A hybrid of Ticket to Ride (contract scoring and drafting) and Steam (power selection, track building and cube delivery to score), though wonder if the card drafts are too chaotic for the amount of thinking involved. As there is no competition for routes not as tense or exciting as TtR, though because you can draw build cards from the top of the deck Canal Mania is marginally better than Steam as there is some tense uncertainty. However the cube delivery system is bland compared to the coloured cubes to destination which creates an interesting puzzle.

One interesting innovation is the seeding of the goods cubes is done via card drafting, so adds more incentive to either pick up or discard. Theme is refreshing and educational.
