This is a decent game with some very interesting mechanisms. It is balanced to remain tense and engaging throughout the whole game and requires interesting decisions. It's somewhat low rating lead me to write my very first review here at BGG. Then again, it is not without a few flaws. My rating has dropped to a 7 over time.

Certainly a good game on an objective scale but abstract games just don't do it for me.

A classic game for sure. Easy to get ruined if inexperienced players misread it as a game of military conquest. Has happened surprisingly often.

All the layers it adds to the base game don't add equally to my enjoyment. Somewhat more interesting than vanilla Descent but I rather play something else when I have 3 hours + at my disposal.

Yes, I can see the uniqueness of the game. Yes, I can see strategy. Yes, I know many people love it. It still is an ok game for me and the imbalance between the cards is something I struggle hard getting used to.

Good on paper and the rules are hillarious. The depth of the game is visible but the end always seems to come to soon and it is hard to develop a plan and then execute it over the course of the game. Not my favorite worker-placement game and of all of Vlaada's games the one I like the least.

The one racing-game I feel most inclined playing. Fun, can be adjusted to different levels of complexity and nice to look at.

Update Aug 2012: With a group that likes to optimize all actions this game can drag, and badly so. It's most fun when played quickly and without overthinking it.

Like the theme, like the mechanism. Less forgiving than Puerto Rico, it seems, but same nice colonial theme.

Was fun back when I was 12 years old. Haven't played in years since this game was pushed aside when we discovered RPGs. Now, back to boardgames, it is unlikely to see tabletime.

A fun little game for two players that plays quickly and might be attractive even to playes who are not into heavy gaming.

Quality of the gaming-experience really depends very much on the case you put on the board. Some are quite clever - and some just stupid.
It has an interesting design, though. Some of my sweetest memories of gaming with my family when I still was a around 13-15 years old are linked to this game.

Fun game with a substantial amount of luck involved. I do prefer Arkham Horror because of its more epic feel and the richer theme but Pandemic is a good - and comparably short - offspring.

A very solid worker-placement game that I am always willing to play. Like its theme better than Agricola's.

Will not get addicted and will now always play with at least one expansion. Good game but if I have a group of gamers and 3 hours or more I will not suggest this game.

nice addition and more complexity. Would like to test it with more than 2 players before rating it.

It is a good game and many aspects of it feel well designed. The heroes are important and can win you the day but for me the hero aspect feels a little like a second layer of game pasted on the base. Strangely, I don't mind this while playing but when I think about the game afterwards it strikes me as a not so smooth kind of integration.
Combat is tense and fun and the 4 races are interesting and play differently. Unfortunately, some races are just better (or rather: more interesting?) than others. It might not hugley affect your chances of winning but it does to some degree and it also affects the fun you get out of the game.
The order cards combined with the season mechanism is very good design and makes for interesting decisions.

Interesting concept for a card game. Mechanisms seem solid, decisions meaningful. Is there enough tactical variety to provide high replay value? - Not sure about that.

Solid Euro with some good elements to it. Nothing that blows me away, though.

Nice one. Superior to Magic tG in almost every way. Battle Packs and expansions will make it an expensive game in the end but I quite enjoy it once in a while.

After having seen a Vassal demo I must say I am impressed. Seems more streamlined than Hannibal and possibly more fun. I also like the art quite a bit.
