I love the bidding mechanic here, and my favorite implementation of a "hidden goals" mechanic

Fantastic art, simple rules, area control with area bidding mechanism. Very innovative mechanism for area control. The game is rather simple but it is nerve breaking the decision making. You need to get a hourglass so no player will be allowed to go into deep thought and put the other players into sleep (this is my only complain for the game). Excellent game, very clean, very challenging, and there are plenty of strategies that can apply in this game. And it looks stunning!

Lovely brainburny game, with hidden goals. I love this game because of the beautiful box art en gameboard, and because I like spatial reasoning.

Truly a great game. This is a game that I use for any purpose. It's simple, elegant, scales well, and short. Plus, it combines some of my favorite mechanics - auctions & secret objectives.

Everyone I've played this with seems to love it, including me. It's fun, has plenty of strategy, isn't too complicated, and it plays in under an hour. One of the best game purchases I've ever made.

Jogo encantador do primeiro ao último instante, numa intensa disputa pelos terrenos preferidos, que se situem no distrito que mais interessa e que possibilitem a concretização da missão secreta que é recebida no início do jogo. Poucas mas muito relevantes decisões, num tabuleiro que se adapta a 2, 3 ou 4 jogadores e que se transforma numa verdadeira metrópole quando o jogo acaba… Obrigatório!

Very nice interpretation of the Goa auction phase to develop a whole game. Only played in the basic way, I have found it to be a very interesting, enjoyable and original game. Secret objectives can be kept secret, this works fine. Tokens are really nice, and the board needs some time to get used to it, but I like it. Box cover is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen.
UPDATE: After three games in basic way, I have been really delighted with the change to the standard game. Much more difficult objectives, much more interesting auctions, much better a game. Lovely.
UPDATE: Played for the first time with the expansion cards. It changes quite a lot, since the expansion conditions are quite difficult. Nice way of changing the view of the game.

Mar09: I love the blend of spatial relations and auctioning. There's a big game of chicken and lots of maneuvering going on. The scoring is just unique enough to keep the winner a true surprise each time. (We used the advanced version each time. The sky-scraper bonuses were a very fun source of points.)

I do think the board hurts the usability, but as others say, it's not bad enough to try and replace. And it does add a very cool design style to the game.

If you like spatial games and auctions, then definitely give this one a try.

I'm not always in the mood for it, but that said, this is one of the most elegant game systems I've ever seen. It's such a clean, simple mechanic, but with so many interesting tactical implications. Beautifully designed.

My girlfriend's favourite game. I've had great success teaching this, people love it, and even if they make horrible mistakes on their first play, the learning curve isn't steep at all and after 2-3 plays, people get it.
