This game has held the number 1 rank on BGG for a long time until just recently, and with good reason. It puts on a clinic in modern board game design. Many of the classic characteristics of Eurogames are present and very well done here, such as role selection and having many different goals to accomplish but not enough resources to accomplish them all.

A fantastic economic game about building networks that is always exciting and suspenseful down to the last turn. The look and theme make you feel like you are playing a very sophisticated game.

A good step up in complexity in card-driven wargames.

A title that has been around a while comparatively, but it still holds up. The gold standard in area control games.
