Card drafting and tile placement sounds good enough, need to know more though.

Edit: After watching a couple playthroughs i still think it looks really gorgous, but i'm afraid i don't like the gameplay.

Didn't get it last year. But considering all the games Renegade is publishing right now and all the good reviews they get, i expect them to have a booth of their own this year and to bring a couple copies of FUSE along.

On Kickstarter right now with Essen Pick Up. But they skipped the very adorable ceramics player figures and are now selling it with ordinary meeples... Buh That is such a downgrade that i am not sure about it anymore.
