Being a Geek is a sure sign of a sound mind, cause it means you think that life as it is is dull and should be more interesting. Which it is.

Very good!
I've owned and played many worker placement games over the past ten years and really this one might go straight on top of the list, hands down!

I can NOT imagine a situation when you're not pleased with what you'll get.

Oh yes one: you HATE the guts of workers placement games. You REALLY LOATHE that kind of games.

But then why on earth would you have bought this game in the first place??? :D

I tell you what: you'll have a ball!

There's potentially a lot of screwage because you can block people out of certain spaces, or at least cause them to lose money - this presents a nice extra overlay of strategy.

In addition, the way that armies get more expensive to maintain, until they have to be retired, whereupon they pass on some of their skills/knowledge, is also really nice.

And of course, the art. I've just returned from the UK Games Expo and this was the only game I played, where two separate sets of people stopped to watch our table - and one guy even had the game himself - he just stopped to look because the art was so good!

Yes - the breakfast room (is that what is was called)? We were seated near the window? Great weekend :-)

I'd say that the three main "differences" or specific assets woudlk be:

-Really based on screwage: you definitely will not be able to play without looking at your opponent's actions

-Great theme/mechanics coherence

-Great art and nice world
