As I got a few light games recently (like The Witches, which I got because we're disc world fans, Via Appia, Safranito and Escape Curse of the Temple because of the cool and different mechanics and etc.) I now would like to get a heavier and more serious game. I have some heavy-ish games like Tzolkin (my favorite game), El Grande (still haven't played it), Village + expansion, Dungeon Petz, Castles of Burgundy and 1-2 more but one more could do no harm. I'm not talking about some 4+ hours beasts, or something needing depth of thinking as a chess, as neither I nor my gaming groups would like that, but something on the complexity level of Tzolkin or a little bit more, that can fit under 2 hours will be great. As I'm very sensitive for price per satisfaction factor, and those games I have in mind are more expensive I am trying to make research and possibly get opinions from you. If you can suggest another game that fits the criteria it will be great too.

This is on my radar for a long time. I have only one Feld's (Burgundy) which I like a lot but doesn't get played often because it takes more than 2 hours with 4. I keep hearing Trajan is possibly his best, and I like how the mancala mechanism looks. Also it's not worker placement of which I got a lot of games.

I keep hearing good things about it, and although it's worker placement it seems quite an innovative one.

On first look it doesn't seem heavy, but it is rated 3.3 on weight which seems good for our needs. It looks great and the race mechanics is interesting. Also - cult of the new

Somehow similar to Lewis and Clark - not too heavy, new, got a lot of praise from reviewers. I have Hamburgum, so I'm not sure if it won't feel a bit similar so maybe I will not go for it.

Another new game. All the reviewers say it's super heavy, so I'm afraid It can be difficult to get it to the table. Otherwise seems very cool.

#3 on bgg should mean something. But some of the mechanics seems fiddly to me, and I'm afraid that it might be too heavy. Also it costs almost as much as 2 of the other games in the list and the components are not spectacular, if it was about the 35 pounds level I would most probably get it.

The oldest games in the list. Could be too heavy for us, and doesn't look very cool. Don't know much about the game-play, but it's probably great.
