suggested this list to me because we're planning to play board games together from now on/in the near future and what should I say, she has a lot of games I really, really want to try out.
I even write a short comment after playing the game on how I liked it and so on
Also, except Crisis this list only consists of games I haven't played before and don't own myself.

Ranva, don't fear, we can also still play games like Terraforming Mars which I enjoy a lot and have played before

I want to buy the German edition which hopefully is released in 2018 by Schwerkraft but I want to play it as soon as possible!
I love the theme and the funny book titles, the artwork, the worker placement and so much more. I'm sure the game won't disappoint me

_____________________________________________________________


The game is good and I had fun playing it but my expectations were, probably, a bit too high...
Sure, the game looks amazing. The artwork is magical and dreamy (which fits the theme) and the characters are cute. Also, the worker placement mechanism isn't too complicated with just 4 workers you can place each round. The places where you can put your workers change every round with the exception of one which can be used till the end of the game. This means that you have, from turn to turn, more choices and variety.
So why was it just good then? I'm not quite sure to be honest. Some places were I could've placed my worker simply weren't interesting for me at all in regards to the effect. The set up changes each game so maybe we just had bad luck with them? All effects were pretty similar. Also, my biggest annoyance with the game is not about the game play but about the card text: is way to small and sometimes it even gets lost in the artwork. It really lessens the fun if you have to strain your eyes every turn to read then texts, best pick up the cards and read them aloud. This is such a well designed and beautiful game and they destroy it with this. I know some of the place cards have a huge amount of text on them so a smaller type size seems reasonable but not if I almost can't read it at all.
In addition, reading the book titles was such a huge fun factor for me but I think this presumably will vanish after a lot of plays.
I need and want to play this again just to see how differently it plays when other place cards come out. I haven't seen all of them after one play

Deck building game In! Space!. Who wouldn't want to play this?

____________________________________________


My verdict is: excellent!
And I'm saying that even if I lost the game and by that I mean I died before I could reach the safe haven so I had zero points.
Anyway, I really like deck building games and I enjoy the apsect of combining this with a board very much. The turns are relatively fast even if you can't plan your turn 100%. The available cards you can buy will change for each player depending on what and how many cards the player before you bought. The game ends pretty fast as soon as one player is out of the game and the boss attacks with the red clank. I had none of my clank in the bag at the end and I still died because of that. Sometimes it's probably better not to aim for the high victory tokens and take one you can reach easily, then get to safety as fast as you can

I own this as well but haven't played it yet because it's a heavy box and needs a lot of space on the table and my friends are interested but we never got to play it. I know Ranva has it and played it a few times, she knows the rules so please let us play this

This looks very interesting and as far as I know it has a programming aspect because the cards/tiles I have to lay out first I'll get last in the 2nd phase of the game (I think?)
