A finely tuned beautifully crafted game. If you love Twilight Struggle, you'll love this one too.

For two players, this is the only way to go. It plays really fast, it's very tense, and the small board means you're in the other player's hair (and vice versa) right away.

It's definitely well optimized for two players. Some people will hate the bonus tiles.

One of my favourite two player games.

I tbink this is one of the best, if not the best, in the Carcassonne series. Lots to think about, possibility of scoring on many levels, strategy and tactics both much more important in this one than the others. The city wall makes a very nice additional twist.

With four experienced players, this game really shines. New players should never play Prussia (unless everyone's a new player). [2009-12-14]

Edit: [2012-01-25] Just received the new Jubilee Edition map in the mail. It looks really nice. The only significant change I noticed is the suits in the left hand "column" of the map have changed to club-hearts-club-hearts from what it was before. And one town name change.

Finally had a chance to play this (30 Dec 2007) - exceptionally fun. The rules are a little murky, but using the play aids really helped. Playing a sample round really let it sink in. It'll take quite a few plays to really understand all the interactions, but there is a lot here.

This game has some nice innovations on the CDG model, including the ability to bank ops points for future use and having campaigns/events that cost more than any single ops card could give you.

I also really like the flexibility of being able to play a variable number of years in any given game.

Once again I find myself in the interesting position that I'm not usually one to play solitaire games, but oddly compelled and drawn in by a VPG product. This is the first solo game I've tried from them since the very enjoyable Nemo's Way, and is my introduction to the States of Siege series.

It won't be my last!

I like the simple elegance in this one. The game is simple on its surface, but it's all about the interplay of the cards. This one clicked for me right away, and I hope to play it again often.

I like this game quite a bit - the fluctuating requirements to gain influence are a clever touch. My one complaint is that there's a lot of setup required for what's a relatively short game.

I'm not usually keen on solitaire games, but I decided to take a flyer on this one, especially as I'm attracted to the Jules Verne classic.

Well, I was very pleasantly surprised. The biggest issue with solo games tends to be replayability, and it looks like this one might have legs. Of course, that might only last for 20-30 plays, but even then, at an hour a game, that's a lot of bang for the buck.

For an Eklund game, the game is remarkably straightforward. This is not to say that it's simple in any way shape or form. There's a lot going on, a lot to keep track of, and a lot to think about.

Also, the rules suffer from being not as concise and to the point as they ought to be. The glossary is a must, and it would have been really useful to have the card summaries on a handout rather than on the side of the box.

I "accidentally" got this - I completely forgot I'd preordered this. I for one, am glad that happened - this is a great game. My initial 8 will probably go up.

I finally had the opportunity to play this - I really like it, and I feel it captures the essence of Puerto Rico beautifully (speaking as a regular PR player), but is different enough to be very challenging in its own right.

For my wife and I this is a much better game for the two of us than the two-player variant of Puerto Rico.

This game is just a lot of fun with two players. The game balance was obviously very seriously and well thought out, and there's enough unknown and unknowable in any given game that you have to take chances to win. A solid game, and definitely happy to have it in my collection.

Sadly, my gaming group isn't big on it.

A brilliant card game. Not only do you have to guess how many tricks you'll take, you have to manage how many tricks you take over your bid or risk losing points too.

I don't follow NASCAR, I'd rather watch golf. And I'd rather watch dust settle on the mantlepiece than that.

This game is a lot of fun, and requires some thinking - strategy & tactics are needed.

The theme and the mechanics also mesh very well - which is a completely subjective impression, but that's how I feel.

This is my favorite of the TTR series.

I really like this variant - the 3-for-1-locomotive in the ferries and 4-1-wild for the Murmansk run, plus tunnels, really make for a nice tight board. Tickets aren't quite the sole determinant that they are in TTR Switzerland making it, in my opinion, a better version of the game. Highly recommended.
