I love the theme and find that it fits so well with the mechanisms of this game. However, the components could've been a lot better. Seriously, just get out a bunch of those meeples from that game of Carcassonne that you're no longer playing, and use them instead of the worker tokens.

You may also want to get some nice bits to replace the resource tokens, just some wooden or plastic cubes in 5 colors, or even glass beads would be an improvement. The same thing goes for the VP tokens. Another quibble about the tokens is that there's just not enough of them, not even for a 2-player game - you need the Fix Pack!

The worst offense though is Portal's rule book. It's definitely competing for the worst rules I've ever read, and I have read well over 1,000 rule books in my life! The Toy Vault rules are much better, but still lacking a much needed example of play. The FAQ here on BGG is a necessity to get how to really play the game.

However, all those negatives aside, the game itself is a blast! I really enjoy it. I'm very curious how they will expand the game. The four factions in the game each specialize in one of four areas of the game, meaning either new factions will double up, or entirely new mechanisms and/or card types will have to be introduced. Either way, I'm looking forward to it!

I rate 51st State a 10, but that is with The New Era rules, and the Winter expansion. Standalone 51st State would likely be an 8, The New Era 9, and Winter 10. I love the damn game!

Gorgeous card game from Ignacy Trzewiczek. Post-apo theme, economy engine building. Best with 2 players.

Le livret de règles est vraiment mal foutu. Pourtant la mécanique tourne bien et le jeu est relativement simple. J'aime beaucoup l'univers. Il y a plus de choix qu'à RFTG donc les tours sont plus longs.

The rules were a little hard to get the head around ... but I think this game plays better than Race for the Galaxy

Whoa !! Super Cool Tableau-Building, Post-Apocalyptic, Resource and Hand Management Card Game by Ignacy Trzewiczek. Cards have multiple uses. Lots of decisions. Very tactical with some strategy. Puzzle-y feel. Love at first play. The game crawls the first couple rounds, but accelerates to a blazing finish.

NOT A GATEWAY GAME !! Learning curve. Lots of icons. Complex-ish rulebook.

This Polish gamer (me) understands and loves this fiddly slow building AWESOME game from Poland !!

Better with Winter, but is fantastic on it's own. Bits could be bigger and more abundant.

We try the Blue Steel 2-player variant of no extra VP for Leader Replacement.
