That's a moray!
We played Lords of Waterdeep last night. The flavor doesn't really come across as you are collecting orange and blue cubes to fulfill quests, even if they have names like "Destroy the Vampire Coven". It's too bad they couldn't make the cubes (sorry, character classes) a little more relevant, maybe if they were needed for the intrigue cards. Mechanically, I think Agricola is a lot more interesting since there is a lot more variety in what you can do with your resources (wood is good for fences, reeds are needed for your house, crops get planted, animals go in a pasture or get eaten, etc.). Here there is little to distinguish a black cube from a white cube. (This is the same thing that makes Stone Age not that exciting for me.) It does play pretty quickly so if you need a 60-minute game it is not bad. I just feel like it could have been a little better.
