What is the highest rank you think this will hit?

It's expensive and heavy, which usually bodes well for rankings, as casual gamers that are less likely to enjoy it are also less likely to try it. For Uwe fans, it's probably exactly what they were hoping for (it's even better than I was expecting). For non-Uwe fans, it offers enough different from his other games that they may enjoy this one.

My heart says it will hit #10, but my brain says #22. Let's say #19.

I'll be slightly less optimistic and say it will top around 25.

Re: Speculation: Where will this top out in the rankings?
I see this as being in a similar vein to Fields of Arle and that's currently #50 so - while this has a more flexible player count - being slightly more expensive means I think it'll top out slightly higher than FoA but not much.

Re: Speculation: Where will this top out in the rankings?
I'll be bold and say that I see this going quite high. It seems like it's got what it takes to please almost every old Uwe fan and yet it might be capable of making quite a lot of new Uwe fans at the same time. Yes, it has a price tag on it, but I predict that that won't get in the way of the buzz around a really really good game. Top Ten easily. High Top Ten.

Yub, it'll go high going on the same principle as Caverna vs Agricola and Through the Ages: A New Story of Civilization vs Through the Ages: A Story of Civilization.

Top50 : sure
Top20 : probably
Top10 : questionably: too expensive for the mass

I know the expense of a game can impact ratings, but Uwe Rosenberg is a known commodity, and this game has a shockingly high percentage of 10, 9, and 8 ratings. Caverna is just as expensive and is Top 5!
