I just got this game, haven't had a chance to play it yet, but I am delighted by how it looks.

The subdued yet rich colour palette, the sense of space and gentility, are just lovely.

This is clearly a pretty abstract affair - the whole game could be boiled down to fighting over a grid of numbers - and yet the aesthetics provide a surpising sense of place, and the victory tokens a satisfying completeness. No tracks, no irritating end game calculations - you simply score, grab the token and there it is.

I hope the gameplay stacks up, but this game's first impressions are a cut above.

I think that will come once it gets an English release, I know I am eagerly waiting to for a copy.

I think Peter Hawes cares quite a bit about the production quality of his games, I'm judging based on both the OP's comments and my experience with Francis Drake.
