Another meaty deck builder from Martin Wallace. Theme is take it or leave it for me but will probably entice some Ameritrash friends (like Discworld)

With all the delays, this has now become an Essen release I guess. The old version of this game got some really good critiques so I'm stoked about this one.

The original game is a fun light-weight take on worker placement and area majority. This will be a nice addition.

The mechanism of the changing action prices and planning sounds interesting. Good theme and pedigree too.

I like the thematic synergy with Nieuw Amsterdam. Will we now see a game about old New York each year from WGG?

Update: Read the rules and it's VERY simple and light but it might still offer some interesting choices though. Hard to tell from just reading the rules. Last year's gamble on Rattus Cartus paid off, not sure yet which way I'll go this year.

Update 2: Ah why the hell not

Dice based space combat isn't really my thing but the light rules and potential for combos make this one stand out for me.

Update: Read the official rules and it still sounds like a lot of fun so preordered.

I think this is supposed to come out at Essen but who knows for sure with the mystery of its publisher.

Sounds like a very thematic Euro with some worker placement and RftGish cardplay. The whole family building stuff sounds fascinating.

Update: And the publisher is Portal, that's a pretty good sign. Let's hope they don't make the game too ugly though, looks like they're already changing the nice, airy cover to something brown and gloomy with a serious dude on there. Oh well.

Update 2: The more I read about this game, the more interested I become.

Update 3: The cover might've been a bit dreary, but the card designs are great.

The card playing mechanism sounds potentially interesting.

Update: Rules were pretty interesting. I'm not sure though if the strategy isn't a bit too fixed to provide enough replayability, even with the randomness of the cards.

Update: Ah what the heck, not like replayability is such a big issue.

Light civilization game with a trick-taking motor. Tricks give you resources, which help evolve your civilization which give you better trick taking powers (industrial revolution lets you use trumps for example). There's resource management, buildings, discoveries, disasters,... I just hope the growing needs of your population are enough to prevent a runaway leader problem.
