Harrow on the Hill
These seem like great new games with great reviews. A strange lack of player number ratings on Medici and Coal Baron, however.
Medici the Card Game
Coal Baron the Card Game
Power Grid the Card Game
I'm trying to decide between these three games but struggling. I would like to buy all of them, of course.
I was wondering which you think is the most social of these three. I realise they aren't directly comparable games in many other ways, but I'm not too worried about that. I'm not looking for a party game, but laughs and groans, as well as table-talk, would be fun.
Other observations would be welcome also.

I've played all three and I would say Medici is the most social. A small, central train of cards for everyone to take cards from and your pick will impact others. You're always interested in other players draws and when the 7 comes up it's met with both "dang it" and "yes!"'s. Plus, you always need to know what others are doing to determine what you want to do.
Coal Baron is more solitaire, though your selection of carts and other cards can impact others, but you're usually more concerned about your train until closer to the end of the game.
Power Grid is pretty social too as the market keeps fluctuating. You can definitely impact other players in this game.
