How good Ancient World is in a long run? I mean, I have read the few reviews that exist here, but I was not able to make my mind about this game. Could anyone here, a good samaritan, analyze my profile and say if this game is a good one for me?

Thanks

I can't really make that determination based on your owned games, but I do know that I enjoy the game.

It's a lovely combination of set collection, worker placement and skillful resource management, with the ability to be quite mean to other players with specific chokepoints for placing works, if you and your group want to play it that way.

Sorry I couldn't be more specific for you.

You won't like it. Your high rated games are much more complex than ancient world. AW is a very simple gateway worker placement game. There are better WP games out there. AW's biggest asset is its artwork. Gameplay for us (2 player) fell completely flat. And be aware that if you do buy it, and don't like it, resale value is not good. I can't sell it for even half its list price. There is zero interest, and that is strange, because its a fairly new game from a designer that has other well received games.

I think you'd probably have some fun with The Ancient World for a while, but not as much as other things. I suspect you would end up rating it somewhere between 6 and 7.5.

Guys, thanks a lot for your opinion. I am definitely removing Ancient World from my whishlist. It looks very interesting and beautiful but I think is not my cup of tea.
