a new feld game will try it at spiel but will probably buy it as queen games somehow always enjoy me.

Rules are available in different languages, will read them and adapt my willingness to buy.
read the rules, seems intriguing and as said queen games tick my boxes

interest:
Wife: thumbsup

neat little game and quick, unique mechanic with paper and pencil sheet. good for two and also more. double sided board which essentially provides another game for the same price. what's not to like. On the plus side my wife isn't put down by this one as she is my main playing partner

interest:
wife: thumbsup

edit: will need to find out what Nekken plays like. If not appealing than will skip this one. Byzantio is unique and has got me interested though. Especially rahdo playthrough was very helpful in making up my mind about it.

7. Board Game: The Builders: Middle Ages [Average Rating:6.53 Overall Rank:1433]

need lots more info but am interested

les batiseurs translated means the builders. Its a small game of about 30 minutes. The creator has a philosophy about money and has created this game with this philosophy in mind. money has three functions: 1. Conservation, 2. divideability 3. Universal

the game itself exits out of cards and chips, thats it. the cards represent buildings and workers. Workers are needed to make the buildings, but take wages. buildings give money and points.

On a players turn you can take three free actions and pay 5 for each extra action. the choices are:
1. open a site - take a building out of 5 available and place it in front of you. draw a new building from the deck so 5 are available again
2. recruit a worker - pick a worker from the row and draw a new one
3. assign a worker to a building - pay its wages. each building needs resources and each worker gives a small amount of resources. Whenever the buildings needs are met you get the points and coins indicated and flip the building. all assigned workers become available again.
4. get money - 1 action 1 money, 2 actions 3 money, 3 actions 6 money. At the end of the game 10 money gives 1 point

There are some special cards which can aid you. whenever a player hits 17 points the end is near. all players take one more turn up to this player and points are counted most points wins.

A small optimization game. Probably will fit nicely if we go on holiday or a picknick.

wife: thumbsup

depending on the price I will take this with me

not convinced yet, will keep track to get the necessary info to make the right decision.
the more info and pictures become available the more interested I'am. Had a pm with mr mjeh to look if he can attend a playing session of our game society that comes together every second saturday of the month. will read the rules when they are available on monday and will alter my interest. and of course if I have a play session will report my findings then. Artwork is lovely though

interest now:

saw the video,this is just up my alley so because interest of others is also high have pre-ordered

a mixture of through the ages and 7 wonders makes my curious, game length bothers me though and will have to try to see if this mix actually works. need rules or review or video to see if it can stay on my essen list

interest: for now

probably not as there are games i'm more interested in and I don't have an infinite budget.
