I just received my game today and am looking at it now. I'm amazed at the components. I really am. I haven't yet cracked the rule book open and I'm in love with this game!

I want every reader curious about this game to know that Clever Mojo didn't cut any corners in producing one of the most beautiful looking games I've ever seen. These pieces are the best wooden markers, plastic place holders, and extra-thick cardboard tiles most of you will ever see.

They are well painted, beautifully designed and inviting. I've been touching them, turning them over and drinking in the artwork for the last half hour.

I'm so happy that I backed this project!

I'm flabbergasted. This quality of game is certainly not standard fair today. You have to go back many, many decades to find games like this. What a joy!

The box is so heavy, it can't be held with one hand for more than a few seconds. Honestly. I haven't weighed it, but it's gotta go about 100-125 lbs.

I'm kidding about that, but it's the heaviest game I own, and I own close to 80.

Thank you Isaias Vallejo and Clever Mojo Games!

Now to the rule book....

The components are fantastic. But Clever Mojo Games has once again deprived me of one of the best parts of getting a new game - punching out the pieces. Though if there were sheets of bits to be punched, I don't think they would have fit in the box with the insert.

We actually considered unpunched sheets, but doing so would have increased the box depth by about 50% and added another pound or two to the already HEAVY game.

I'll do my best to have unpunched sheets in our next creation.

When I got the game in today, I assumed it was unpunched because of how heavy it was. I am just amazed by these tiles.

Amazing job!

Ooooh this is so scrumptious. I was prepared for the awesome components but no one mentioned the beautiful vanilla smell from the bags, it lasted for about 5 mins. kiss

I knew that smell was familiar! Slightly vanilla it is. Congrats to Clever Mojo for the awesome components. I will debut this game today and the other players will be surprised by the thickness of the tiles and the quality of the tokens. The Key to the City pin is beautiful too.

EDIT: Is it me or the Lobbyst card reminds of that deceased lybian dictator, Muammar Gaddafi?
