Players cooperatively clear land and build buildings in Venice. A bit abstract but still very approachable with a mixture of mechanics reminiscent of other games (tokens - Africa; scoring track - Torres; cooperative building - Tower of Babel). At its core, it felt most like a more intuitive, more enjoyable Tower of Babel to me. Definitely SdJ bait as it has a very family friendly level of strategy (changing value of buildings throughout the game) and tactics (removal of swamp tiles, blocking with cities). There's also a nice level of luck in both the cards and the swamp/treasure tokens.

Fun little game. I can see why it may appeal for SdJ contention. I got my ass handed to me severely in each game so far, but at least now I have the mechanics down. I think I'd fare a bit better in future games, but overall, I don't think it has long-term appeal for my gaming tastes. I am eager to see the production value on the physical version. The BSW interface looks pretty nice. With top quality components, it'll certainly be a contender for SdJ. A slight concern about difficulty in catching up from a bad start, as people further in front along the scoring track can build over spaces earlier in the track, easily preventing slacking players from gaining treasure bonus tiles for extra points.

Playable at BSW. Nice game. Flows well. 2-5 players. Fun. Point sharing. Nice design. A little restricted as far as play options, but overall a nice game.
