Interesting CCG with some unique combat mechanics. The premise of dueling Conans is sort of odd thematically but it works fine in practice. Having only scratched the surface of this game, I am a bit concerned about game length and smoothness of flow, but that might well improve with further play and familiarity with the rules. The game is a bit too long for my tastes multiplayer.

Cute abstract that plays in five minutes. There is some opportunity for clever tactical play despite its simplicity. I like the tube mechanism and how the wooden disks simply fall into place as you move.

Very interesting area control game in the spirit of El Grande. I enjoy the mechanic by which a player divides a lot of cards and offers it to an opponent. I also like the idea of mixing the beneficial cards with the detrimental cards. I am usually not overly sensitive to randomness in games but I felt that the die roll for the banishments made those cards so hard to evaluate that it might have been better to put the banishment cards at fixed amounts (say remove 2 or 3 of your opponents' pieces).

Very interesting quick-playing abstract. I like the wooden pieces and enjoy the struggle to outmanuever your opponent.

Very cool light betting game themed around horse racing. The different movement numbers on the horses and the different payout schedules make betting decisions difficult and the movement choices after the die roll are by no means always obvious. Control is sacrificed with additional players but betting strategies might become a little deeper.
