Very clever card game. A surprising amount of depth. Very good even after repeated plays. Bumped from an initial rating of 8 to 9.

An excellent card game of bidding and set collecting. The mechanisms are the stars here, with the idea that what you need to collect is also what you need to (carefully) pay with in later rounds. Great component quality and artwork, too.

Very very good card game. Still looking forward for more plays.

EDIT: Now that I finally got my copy and more plays, easily the best auction game I've found.

Byzanz --

Played three- and four-player.

Involvement builds as play progresses. In the initial auction, you just want to build your hand -- it doesn't matter much what cards are up for bid. But that quickly changes. Soon you're paying attention to not only the cards on the auction block, but also to the cards being bid, since they'll wind up in the market, where you may be able to get them -- if you can choose first. When is it worth forgoing the auction for the sake of market-selection turn order?

This quickly joined my favorite fillers.

Cards are auctioned using cards as money, with successive auctions being smaller but compensated by earlier pick from the pool of spent cards. Somewhat similar to Die Weinhändler and Knizia's Money, both of which I have owned and traded away, but this is better.

Does (Top Promoter) subliminal (Top Promoter) advertising (Top Promoter) really (Top Promoter) work?

Nice little auction game with interesting mechanic. We'll see what kind of legs it has.

(UPDATE!)
After 17 plays, still like it. A lot!
