Very much looking forward to this episode! I've finally been able to secure my own copy of this game... and I'm picking it up after work!

Lincoln, on your second to last "reset" you forgot to move your guys out of your cities, may have helped you in the end game.

Interesting game, certainly a lot to remember.

I love Hyperborea. What grabbed me intially was the back story but the gameplay is what really makes this game shine.

I've always wondered: between thia and Orleans which game was the first bag-builder?

Why aren't you PLAYING a game?

I got this I think two Gen Cons ago? And was very excited to have it. But after a few plays, it quickly dulled for me. I really didn't like the explore portion of the board and the disk reveal proved to be to me too unbalanced. It felt 'pushy' in the middle which I didn't like much. And the build a bag is a bit unforgiving to me - you can get into cube draws that really aren't what you need. Orleans I believe is the much better bag builder game - much clearer to me what you are doing and seems much more forgiving when you draw.

But good to see you play a longer game again!

I like both games, but I prefer Hyperborea over Orleans due to the more interesting technology cards and slightly more direct confrontation.

Not a game I would have expected make it on GameNight and I'm glad to see it done. It's one of my favs that seemed to go unnoticed. I like Hype more than Orleans but Orleans is a good game too.

This game looks like Dominion on crack!

Very good in-depth explanation! Very fitting for a game like this.

Also LOL "re-jigger" a cube.
