– Fun game.
– Beautiful components: chunky wooden pieces, well designed and sturdy cards.
– A little more interaction would be nice, maybe among the military buildings/units. Update after a few online plays: the interaction is indirect, but it is there: watching the other players going for the villages (victory points), getting the timing right, when to "attack" with the military units is tension enough! Plus

Play again? Yes!

Do I want to own this? I can play it online and know people who own it, so no.

– Fun theme, quick filler, kinda "20-cards-or-less microgame".
– Pretty chaotic, I guess.
– Why do microgames always need huge cards? Doesn't this go against the transportability??

Play again? Maybe, but I would not ask for it.

Do I want to own this? No.

Interesting theme about extinct animals. At least somewhat educational.
Otherwise pretty abstract euro.
A lot going on: card play, bidding track, the board itself. Nice.
Decent game, I guess, but I'm rather bad at it. Requires strategic thinking
Components rather tiny and fiddly. All things could have been 1/3 bigger or so.

Play again? Yes, once or twice. Maybe it'd grow on me.

Do I want to own this? I don't think so.

Update after playing Bruges, another Stefan Feld game: 6.5. He can do much better

Strategic, pretty interactive euro game. Reminded me of Deus.
Kind of abstract, in a good way.
Colors, icons, area effects, discard effects, card effects, majority rules. The first game is a learning game.

Play again? Yes!
Do I want to own this? Don't know. For a bargain I might by tempted…

Entertaining family game. Pick-up-and-deliver; nice spacial gameplay with blocking and cutting other people off; mean pirate action.
Not too fond of the comic style artwork, but the ships *are* cute

Play again? Yep
Do I want to own this? I don't have to, I guess.

Beautiful, fantastic artwork, great components.
Interesting card effects, the possibilities seem endless.
You can even get into the theme, if you want.
It's highly strategic, still the (bad) luck can bite you. Not all paths to victory are equally smooth, at least that's what I've heard.

Play again? Yes! (But rather with 3-4 than with 5 players, which the expansion allows.)
Do I want to own this? Maybe...

Easy fun family style game with good components (cool card money).
I think we played with (parts of) the expansion. Seemed to improve the base game.
Permanent player interaction.

Play again? Absolutely.

Do I want to own this? Maybe.

unique components
interesting theme
The mechanics *sounds* neat. It *appears* to be very strategic, and maybe it is with 2 players or so. But with 4 it's very chaotic and unless you have a perfect memory and huge guessing luck it's a mess. Did not like this one.

Play again? Rather not.

Do I want to own this? No.

Another interesting trick taking game.
Easy rules, not so easy strategies (at least for my first rounds... I came in almost last in the end.)
Nice artwork.
I'm bad at it

Easy-going rather light-weight euro.
Don't think of it as very strategic: you will be disappointed. Luck comes into play in many forms.
A bit too long in the end.

Play again? Yes
Own No. It's not essential by any means.

I was a little sick (probably even infectious… see?) during the game, so I was glad that we had two semi-alpha-players (not too bad at the table. We lost because we ran out of the event deck; we probably would have won with 1 or 2 more turns available.

– Pretty easy (to grasp) and elegant coop with tense moments.
– If you know one Matt Leacock co-op, you know 'em all!?

Play again? Yes, why not. I'd be more interested in Forbidden Desert at the moment, though.

Want to own? No.

Cute little (and unexpectedly *small*) abstract game with nice penguin miniatures.
My 7 year old* likes it
If you celebrate the setup, like my kid does, it's ok, otherwise a little tedious.

Play again? Yes

Want to own? I do already.

– I've only test-played it solo (2p, and solo variant) so far. Seems to be a nifty little deck builder. Looking forward to play it in my group. I bet they'll like it.
– An expansion (or better: standalone offspring that integrates into the base/first game) is already announced, and hopefully available for SPIEL15/Essen. And although I like the base game, it *is* also kind of ripe for more cards, I must admit.

Play again Definitely!

Want to own I do and I don't regret

Initial rating Solid 7.5, may go up if multi-player works as expected.
