Overall, the now trademarked Bruno Cathala style strapped on a cube conversion engine.

More brain-burny than i thought.

Imagine Century Spice road, mixed with Five Tribe's Djiins system, mixed with resource management.

Get money, buy cards, "repair" card using colored cubes, use repaired cards to get more and/or upgrade cubes, use cubes to get money...
Breaking the loop in your engine somewhere will get you points, by trading money for points or dismantling/discarding cards.

A lot to think about in it. Overall a pretty solid game.
... but less good than Five Tribes or Yamatai.

The artwork is great, but it's really a wash of brown and gray. The art is good, but just plain weird, maybe too weird. After a single game, i longed for the colors of Five Tribes, Yamatai or any other game really...

Hello fellow Montreal's South Shore gamer!
(j'habite près de St-Bruno)

Been looking forward to reading the first reviews for Imaginarium.

I was excited about the game, but after reading your review (plus the one from Proxi-Jeux in France), I'm not sure I'm going to buy the game.

I wonder if "less good than Five Tribes or Yamatai" means it'll work for someone who absolutely hates Five Tribes and literally fell asleep trying to learn how to play Yamatai...twice...

I think you cannot based your choice on other's review, just play it and then maybe you will buy it

I really like this board game. I have already played 5 times at 2, 3 and 4 players. It reminds me Otys that I love.

I like short games but break some neurons so, just try it

Unfortunately, not everyone has the opportunity to try recently released games before buying…

Or for someone who loves Five Tribes but absolutely hates Yamatai.

And what is Five Tribe's Djinns system exactly?

Did you just mean variable player powers that can be achieved during the game?
