roma themed. trading game with some similarity to Tribune in the action selection, and diminishing rewards for later placement. A semi-hidden end game VP scoring mechnism looks promising if not invnetive.

released prior to Essen Spiel, but has not achieved transatlantic travel yet. I hear great things about the simultaneous trade action.

economic engine construction with a race for the galaxy like vibe. Using cards as buildings, and materials.

impressive scope is tackled in this game with a remarkably short play time. Use of economic markets, and political influence to come out on top in the gorgeous game. DROOL!

A remake of a classic, and a played out theme. Lets all be lords in the Dark Ages. What intrigues me again is the area control, and parallel fields of political and religious influence. As I understand it there is also the generational mechanic to consider, your appointed lords/patriarchs age and die. COOL!

cathala and leget. Seems to rehash Mare Nostrum trade mechanics and monument/tech development. Being streamlined it may see more table time. Worth thinking about at least.

from the famed agricola designer another game about "the faces and labor?" Farming is not the only industry employed in this economic game. His other work has been very good, that this may be worth a try as well.

I like the VP track for "The Gates of Loyang" Apply the increasing cost of actions from that to the action selection phase of this economic game (not a new concept) and you have a tense nail biter decision making game about the catching and selling of Fish.

another game that includes a time limit for how long a piece can remain on the board. essentially your workers age and die and you must hire/acquire new ones.

Tired theme. Let's build a castle. You manipulate tiles and the direction they are facing determines resource allotment each turn. So you don't lose anything but may get too much of something useless. This makes it less cutthroat than other games and may appeal more to the fairer-minded living with me.
