My current favorite game is Airlines Europe, so I'm looking for something with similar mechanics and not too distant in weight (not much heavier and not much lighter). Samarkand looks similar, but with enough differences to be worth checking. Do you think it's a good alternative to AE?

We think Samarkand is more fun and plays in half the time

Thank you all for the replies, I'm almost persuaded... now what's the size of the cards (for sleeving purpose)?

It's slimmer than standard MtG size. It's thinner, but just as long.
