Nice little tile-laying, resource management game that plays quickly. Don't know why it doesn't hit the table more.

A great worker placement, scarcity game that has largely been forgotten to the sands of time.

This is one of the best approximations of the RTS genre in board game form. It plays fast once you know how to play, but it takes a couple of attempts to get there.

This is kinda Risk-like but with a mobility element which prevents turtling.

A little risky as it is a pure negotiation game which can struggle with the wrong group.

The insane decision to include small wooden spheres as game components doesn't change the fact that this is a great game.
