Innovation lacks the powerful combos present in RftG and GtR and has simpler core rules, so your comparison is arguably the wrong way round.

Not quite the same analogy in my books neither. Specifically...

While to me, RftG is a superset of SJ, Innovation is mor of a "sidegrade" to GtR.

If your connection is designer-based, perhaps.
Tom worked on San Juan and designed Race
Carl co-designed GtR and designed Innovation.
One came after the other.

But that's about it...

Nah.

GtR is to RftG as Innovation is to Uruk.

Glory to Rome is to San Juan as Agricola is to Puerto Rico.

Discuss it yourself. Maybe you'll eventually get to something actually worth putting in front of others.

GtR, SJ, and RfTG all share some common attributes. I'm not sure how Innovation fits, outside of the Chuck connection.

For me it's simply:

love GTR, Innovation and like San Juan.

Don't really care for RftG

Maybe my post was worthless, but at least it wasn't mean.

My thought was that Glory to Rome was simpler than innovation. People I've played with seem to pick up GTR much more quickly than innovation, and I don't think that GTR has as much of an advantage for the player who knows the cards as with innovation. There is also less to keep track of on your own board (and your opponents board) in GTR than innovation. I think these all apply to SJ vs RFTG

Good point
