I am wondering how is it this game?
Does it play well?
Is it a good game for heavy gamers or is it a family game?
Is this game perfect for which kind of groups?

It looks really funny, but a bit light for us...

Thanks for every answer.

I'm hoping other folks will chime in here but I think it's pretty comparable to Lords of Waterdeep in terms of complexity.

I think the Tantrum House preview will give you a good sense of it.

Thanks a lot for the answer. I found a playthrough from Ant Lab games. I want to give a look at it. The theme of this game is very original and the art looks really nice and funny.
I live in EU and at the moment we can only preorder from one online store (which is not my usual one) and it seems to be available in June (or later)...not easy to find....this means not a lot of publicity for it..

Little bit more strategy then Lords of Waterdeep IMO.

It’s a different kind of worker placement game. The closed signs are basically the workers and if strategically placing the hero’s can limit your opponent’s move.. or even yours.. But there are other places you can go on on your turn other then move Heroes and they are all good moves... there really are no bad areas to go.

Theme of the game is what drew me in and the game play is great.
It’s also kind of fun watching a new player’s face reacts when you describe the theme to them

This was the first game I kickstarted and I knew I wanted it after watching Rahdo Runs Through. It was a long and painful time between end of KS to getting it in our hands. (But they were right on time). They were great keeping us up to date with monthly updates.

I’ve been very pleased with the game and components and I’m hoping to get a play is this weekend with company coming.

I’ve played twice and really enjoy it. The theme alone could carry it, but the smooth gameplay and outstanding production really make it a game worthy of my shelves.

The Dice Tower posted a review last week that’s pretty comprehensive, Worth checking out for another opinion.

I have to wait for next week to see the all playthrough from Ant Lab games (it is a bit long and I need time and Gb)...but it looks really nice.
I am really tempted. I already own Sunset over water and Herbaceous from Baraf. I like them both a lot.
