Eric M. Lang is one of the few designers that can match innovative gameplay with top of the line components. Regardless of what it looks like, I know I'm not getting "just another minis game".

I don't know what I can tell really, but there is already a lot of information about this game already.

It's a tight and fast game that marries two mechanics that I love really well: worker placement and area influence. A great thing about this game is that you only track points at the end of the game, so you don't feel out of the competition until the very end.

Also, there is a lot of replayability. There's a lot of buildings and characters that may or may not enter the game, there are a lot ways to win the game.

I don't think this game is similar at all to Blood Rage at all. There isn't drafting, there isn't fighting and the area control aspect is much more important.

The game won't blow you away with sheer innovation, but it's really fun, well executed and well put together, like blood rage was(at least for me).

There's some detail at 3:14 in this video by Rodney Smith from Gen Con:

Also, around 3:38... a mystery game to be announced at the Dice Tower Live show???!!!

Does anybody know anything about this?

Is the horse head the miniature on the bottom left? My eyes are bad this morning, sorry.

Yes, that is the one I am speaking of, though I could be wrong.

This is the Godfather game i have been waiting for. As soon as i saw Eric Lang and CMON on the box it went to the top of my list. Cant wait.
Now if they would just make a Scarface and Breaking Bad game my life would be complete.
