Played it once. Feel a little like Imperial 2030 in which you can have influence in different countries to control arctic regions, but you need to build resource platforms and they might be attacked by others countries (controlled by other players, of course). Not very straight forward and need more plays to get into the strategies. I'd say it deserves a try, or two.
C/P: (because it's traded from a small game, so the C/P is a little higher)
It's far more strategic than it appears. Laying down your flower tiles (sheets) and collecting as many different kinds of flowers as you can to earn the most fortune is the key to a successful gardener. Meanwhile, sending your loyal pet to guard your flowers and building the ornament at the right place to glory your garden are also essential. This is a pure strategic game that deserves more praise. Glad to grab it in Essen.
A very very simple card-laying game that makes you really think, and then see all strategy fall in vain due to components' decision, but again feel that it should be controllable, and fail, and... Reiner Knizia is a real genius.
