One of the truly excellent Wallace's designs, and I say this without being an area-control fan. I particularly love the many different tiles that provide truly balanced and interesting strategic choices and a lot of replayability. I would also like to see alliances to be even more committing. The dice roll to move on colonies bothers me a bit but I gotta have more plays to form an opinion about this mechanic. Another thing that bothers me is that players should consider the fact that it is costly to attack without an advantage. If they don't they could all team up randomly against a player.
This is the best area control game I've played, and probably one of the best games for 6-7 players.

A nicely made area-control wargame where players form alliances in order to conquer colonies and gain vp.Its has nice mechanics that really work out and its kinda realistic with the alliances idea.Although, despite the theme is obvious during the game i would have prefer it if it was possible that alliances were broken in order to aim for a specific player. Although that works too as it is interactive on its way and the alliance changes eventually.Another thing that bothered me during the game was the amount of luck on the battles which in combination of its long duration is a stepback

Really like this game, but it's sheer volume and length prohibit much table-time with our crew. I suspect this problem would be somewhat abrogated by a tableful of experienced players. Nevertheless, pretty nifty game that masterfully straddles the fine line between Euro and Wargame.

A great deep wargame. Lot's of decisions and a smooth and original combat system. Very well balanced. I'd highly recommend this one.

Splendid. This is as close to a 50/50 euro-wargame hybrid as you're likely to find. The only problem is its unfortunate play time which runs even longer than advertised.

A great civilization variant with a handful of key mechanics which makes this stand out from the average bulk of civ games. The bidding for alliances bid is an amazing mechanic and really what this whole game is about. Of course, apart from the official alliances, there is no limited as to how many spoken agreement can be made and broken, lots of backstabbing and negotiation going on. I have played it only once but found that some players overreact whenever you become to vicious, despite the fact that the game and theme calls for being ruthless, so be careful who you play with, this is a sure-fire temper riser. The initial setup adds some randomness which makes this game way more re-playable than other civ games. It takes a while to learn all the available upgrades and such by heart but once you manage to, the game is actually very simple. The board and card artwork could do with an overhaul, both in style as well as usability but that is a minor issue. All in all, an above than average civ game which should be your holy grail if you are really into the subject matter. It is not my preferred theme and as I said, I am usually a nasty player and like to be vicious and cruel when playing games which call for it and found that many geeks cannot take it because to them, gaming is everything and they cannot lose. Great game. HX

Very good game. It seemed a bit long, but there is plenty of meat here!

UPDATE - Its kind of funny, I have played this and loved it, but I have not had the urge to play this one again. Downgrading to a 7 for now.

Enjoyable Wallace game. It would probably be an 8 if we can get our playtimes down to 3-3.5 hours. Not sure I like the randomness/chaos at the end of the game.

"I play to win, as much or more than any egoist who thinks he's going to win by other means. I want to win the match. But I don't give in to tactical reasoning as the only way to win, rather I believe that efficacy is not divorced from beauty."
