No surprise that the spiritual successor to Terra Mystica placed highly! I'm looking forward to the December stateside release. Congratulations!

I've played this twice now, and I understand why some are calling it a lighter Terra Mystica. I feel like the market is far to important in this game to make it a clean comparison, but so far I'm really impressed by this.

Kiesling is a favorite designer of mine, so it's good to see him back in favor. I'd have this by now if Plan B had shipped preorders on time, but it should only be a few more days...

The Brands are unstoppable. This doesn't look especially innovative, but it does look like something that I'll enjoy.

Glad to see the apparent component issues (some cards and pieces were missing from some boxes) weren't enough to dampen enthusiasm here. I just hope that my preordered copy is complete!

I love Dorn, so I have a lot of faith in this one... Istanbul itself grew on me more and more with each expansion.

The hype on this one has been intense... especially since it's coming from a new designer. It certainly looks innovative, in any case!

I've gotten this one to the table once, so far, and it feels like a mix of Castle of Burgundy and Trajan... maybe lighter than either, unless you add in the expansions. I like it!
