Alan has bought a copy of this, so wait and see.

Possibly too similar to Agricola, combined with Uwe's habit of making his games continually more complex without actually making them into better games. Was disappointed with Ora et Labora.

Current #2 on Fairplay list
Enjoy Mac Gerts game.
Rondel replaced with card based system.
Looks very interesting.

Love the base game but feel it could do with a little something extra. This looks like just the ticket.

Some are describing it as a streamlined version of Through The Ages. Definitely worth keeping an eye on. Highly language dependent so will need to be English version.

Big fan of Sebastian Bleasdale's work, which combined with Reiner's finesse might create something great. Or not. Keep an eye on.
