One of my favorite games ever. IMhO, better than Ra! or Modern Art. This game is completely unemcumbered by fiddly rules or scoring mechanisms. It is a pure auction game with simple rules. The difficulty is in knowing what to bid. I don't care what the board looks like or what the theme is. Definitely best with 6.

I would not expect it, but this is one of my favorite games. Probably because I regularly do okay at it.

Another brilliant Knizia auction game. Perhaps not quite up there with Modern Art and Ra, it still has a strong central mechanic as well as Knizia's usual multiple ways of scoring victory points through card play. German version is definitely best.

First play, Played with rio grande set that has awful colours. Game I did not find inspiring however I did make a fatal mistake of filling my boat early in the first round. Will play again but do not feel rating will change.

[2014.Sep.10] (Tentative rating after 2 plays.) Yet another solid Knizia bidding game. The Doctor strikes again!

Played once with four people. A Knizia-special wherein players are bidding for items (5 types) that have different values (6 values in each of the types). Players can get up to 5 items each round, and at the end of each round get points for having the highest total value of items as well as for having the most items of each type. There are two big twists: 1) the currency used for bidding is victory points, and 2) players only get to place one bid on each lot (thus bidding order plays a large factor in the game). There are very few extra cards, so someone is guaranteed to end up with low value cards. A good mix of luck with strategy/tactics that requires thought yet isn't too long; I definitely want to play this more.

This is an interesting one, but it may be a bit too abstracted of an auction game for me. After a couple of plays, I'm still unsure of what moves to make to try and get ahead. Perhaps I just need more time to wrap my head around it.

Medici is a pretty fun and light auction/shipping game. If you want to have a fun night and don't have a lot of time, this fits very well. I feel the game is just a bit short, adding an extra shipping day or two may help though.

Finally got to play this. I won by 3-5 points at the end of my very first game. Very close game. Pure bidding and a bit of set collecting are necessary. Evaluation is driven by other player's needs. You spend your victory points in the bidding rounds to get goods.

The redesigned board is nice, much easier on the eyes, but it could still use some tweaking to make the goods columns stand out more from each other (note: look at the symbols of the items, not the colors).

How did I like it though?...hmmm...not sure how to rate it yet; it played smoothly, went fairly quick, not bad at all, but it didn't grab me on whole or light me up for another go right off. I'll start it off with a 6.5, but that's provisional.

I'll need to play it a bit more to rest on a rating. It's good, it's OK fun, it's got some good player vs. player bidding...it IS a pure auction game at heart though and you WILL have to be able to evaluate your retun on investment vs. needs of the other players; sometimes you will need to stop another player, because no one else has; at those times it's kind of like in multiplayer Attika vs. two player Attika...sometimes no one wants to be the one to have to stop the other guy from connecting.

Did not have a good experience. Maybe I was tired. This game did not click for me. I'd try it again though.

An infuriating game that I will play again for some reason.

Played twice more. Liking it more. Might have to pick it up. Or PnP it since no one can agree which version is the worst.

I liked it at first but after a dozen of games it started to feel flat for me. Still, it was one of those rare games that could have been played in 45 mins and still being a gamer's game (like Ra).
