Hey,

i enjoy playing games like Imperial Settlers, Elysium, Glory to Rome, Deus and Bruges. Are there any other worthwhile card driven Engine Building games (that look great and don't take too long for what they are?) I don't like St. Petersburg, Terraforming Mars looks great.

Thank you

I think London fits into your criteria.

Fun interesting game where the cards are buildings that give you things. Some stay in play and some don't.

A personal favorite of mine is The Bloody Inn. Short gameplay and great artwork.

I would like to second Terraforming Mars. This game has quickly become one of my absolute favorites. It is very much card driven, and forces hard choices. Worth picking up.

Trains

Trains: Rising Sun

They are all deck builders with meaningful board play.

The few times I played St Petersburg, the games took too long and felt repetitiv (2 players with the market).

Thank you for the recommendations.
