Not yet tried this but I love Eclipse so I can't see myself not liking at least some of this expansion.

Tried this in giant form at the fair. Had an absolute blast, several us bought straight after playing it (and got it signed)

Lots of negotiation and betrayal, which will only get better over time as we understand the game better.

Slightly confusing at first but a great game once you realise all the options you have. Building next to other players can help both of you grow quicker, something we did not realise at first.

Also with 3 it feels less confrontational as there is not a lot of fighting over spaces, still fun though. Looking forward to trying it with 5.

Randomly walked into this in the back of the halls. Tried it and bought it.
Similarish to Love Letter, it involves bluffing and deduction to try to earn enough to kill your opponents. Very fun game with lots of people.

Played pretty badly with just 3 though, great with 4-6.

Pretty game, loved all the previous matagot games so I just bought this one. Sounds interesting from the rules at least.

Heard about this before the fair and just bought it as soon as I saw it. Really good fun, works even with 3.

Someone at our hotel told me they played this game all night.

Picked this up on the last day. Surprisingly good fun, very similar to 7 wonders (card drafting and points for collecting certain types of cards)

I felt that planning out where the cards in your station went interesting enough to own this as well as 7 wonders.

Really fun delayed worker placement game. It could have been implemented without the cogs, but they make it look cool and save effort on having to move individual things around making the cogs totally worthwhile.

Hoping this will see more play than FFG's Civ board game. Seems a lot "simpler" but still has plenty of depth.

Fun game. Not too serious and sort of similar to Galaxy Trucker.

Nice idea for a game, remains to be seen if it has lasting power.
