This is an expensive game so I'd like to know what sets this game apart from similar and cheaper ones?

What genre do you consider it to be in?

I backed the kickstarter on theme and art alone, so I don't know if my reasons would be compelling to you.

It's streamlined in its elegance. There aren't any ground breaking new mechanics, but it all comes together well.
There are great choices to be made in your decision tree during the game. I'm about 10 games in and I'm still interested in playing more. The game scales well at 2 or 3 or 4 players.

It's expensive because it's from Japan, where everything is very pricey compared to what we pay in North America.

I think first of all, the artwork. It is very evocative and quite different from a lot of other games. Secondly the Theme comes through vividly through the gameplay, everything makes sense. The rondel mechanism in this game is one of the best implementations of the system imo and it makes for some insane player interaction. The turn order manipulation is also very interesting and it requires a nice amount of thought each round. The game also scales great with all player counts. Two plays radically different with a dummy system that is very well put together imo. The three player is ridiculously good and the sweet spot I think. Overall for me, It's a work of art and it will never leave my collection. I wholeheartedly recommend this game to any Eurogamer.

What games do you think are similar? Looking at your profile, you own three games which I don't know, which makes it hard for me to give an answer relative to what you know.
