According to the ratings, yes. But obviously an impossible question to answer on your behalf.

They're different - mechanisms, flow of play, feel and theme. I like them both.

I have both and have played both. I prefer ZhanQuo. But that is a personal preference. They are quite different games, though of a similar "weight".

Obviously subjective but for me no. Nippon is good, Zhangou is better.

I didn't like Zhanguo. I do like Nippon. They're totally different games so the comparison doesn't work.

Interesting Evan. I know you love Lisboa and the card play in that game is nearly identical to ZhanGuo. You play a card to either your tableau for ongoing bonuses or to the court to do certain board actions. Why do you like one and dislike the other?

Subjectively, no, ZhanGuo is better. Of course, I think ZhanGuo is better than all other games.

That said, Nippon is very good!

+1

Edit:
Madeira, ZhanGuo and Nippon are all worth to be in your collection...
