Played and bought at Essen. Illustrator was there to sign copies, but was taking too long to wait around for.

Fun little game, kinda reminds me of Cartagena, with more strategy involved.

No change to play this at the fair, but the beautiful game board and overlay-tiles, combined with the fact it'll only be printed once, meant I just had to get it

Fun game, love the theme. Was odd to find a game demo'd at a stand, but not for sale there. Was available from retailers though.

This appealed to me in the Essen Preview, but nothing other than a short description was available at the time. Lived up to my expectations of a logic puzzle game. The levitating display they had for this was really cool also got my copy signed by the designer

Fun little game which plays quickly, and up to 6 players. Had a nice chat with the designer, and had my copy signed.

Sadly didn't get to play this, despite the 4 or 5 tables that were available. It was always busy! I took that to mean that the game was good. Besides, who can pass up a 3D train as a board?

Think I already had most of the cards that are in this, due to getting the game when it was on Kickstarter, but I gotta catch em all.

I was really hoping they'd sell these at Essen, couldn't find any mention of it before I went. After finally making it to the expo after traffic jams and a confused satnav, I went straight for the Star Realms stand, and I swear my heart skipped a beat when I saw the boxes of Crisis expansions. Love this game, can't wait to use the new cards!
