My wife makes me play this game every day since we got it. I am not kidding about this. That alone deserves a 10. This is one of those rare game were simplicity hides a rather complex set of decisions to make. It reminds me a lot of Ra not that it is an auction game -it isn't, but like Ra a great game can have simple mechanics but complex decisions. Bravo to the designers!

I'll admit that the game can be somewhat formulaic, but that doesn't mean there aren't interesting decisions. I just love how this game plays, and the decisions are ones I enjoy making.

I wish I had more opportunities to play.

Well i've played this over 300 times on bsw so I must like it. I like its speed and that there is enough strategy.

2-player. Nice "busy-body" game (always something to do). Have a slight concern that the scores in the two games I played were very close and thus the game was decided by a lucky/unlucky last draw. Need to play more to see if this pattern hold up (or if I can find a new strategy).
EDIT: upped rating. "Lucky" last draw can be mitagated by careful play. Though interaction is indirect, there's a lot to think about it terms of how many cards to take in order to control the flow of cards (at least in 2-player). A real "you outsmarted me" feeling to this game. Oh yeah, wife likes it a lot too -- another plus!

Another of my most favorite games. This game is extra special for me because I have visited Saint Petersburg and have seen most of the upgrade buildings in person. I think the game not only plays well, but gives some insight and peaks the curiosity about a city that many people know very little about. The game plays well with two three or four players but the strategy is very different with two players than with three or four. While there is sometimes an element of luck involved for similarly skilled players in a two player game, I find the game to be continuously challenging in that there are always many options to get the victory and choosing correctly is a key part to winning the game.

Really enjoyable and strategic game. Simple in a way, but different from all other games I've played. I enjoy playing it everytime. Good two-player as well. Component quality (cards/money) A+

Ten minutes to explain the rules. Never gets dull.

Less than an hour to play and works well with gamers and non gamers alike.

Works well with even number players, a little chaotic with three.

I've played quite a few games of this now (by my standards), and I can see the implications of the moves I can make, and understand how you can mess with the available spaces, and I really think it's a beautiful design - every move you make depends on what your opponents have done or what they can do. It's surprising that so much depth arises from rules that are so unrelated to their consequences.

Furthermore, I love the Russian theme - so much so that I've made some effort to find out about St Petersburg and Russian history.

One of my favorite four player games. I have heard alot of talk about it being broken due to the Mistress of Ceremonies and Round 1. Hogwash. This game is brilliant. Love it. A bit of luck, alot of strategy and resource management. Have played over 2 dozen times and never tire of it. Great game.

Still climbing (from an initial 7 rating) after playing myriad of games on BSW. 2-player now seems the most skillful, whereas 4-player is somewhat driven by luck of the draw and seating. But still a fun game.

Having played a few times: This definetly leaves me wanting more!
The more I play it the more I keep thinking it deserves this vote wholeheartly. It is much fun to balance income and victorypoints throughout the game, somehow it feels similar to San Juan even if the gameplay is different! It plays well from 2 to 4 players and is therefore ideal to be pulled out.
Definitive a keeper! I raised finally my vote!
It deserves its spot right next to San Juan!

A vexing and deep game of resource management and timing. For those who enjoy intense puzzle games, where every nuance and gesture counts, and where a single draw or error can completely change the balance of power, St. Petersburg is about as good as it gets.
