Really? I played both Glen More and Seasons this past week and really don't think they're similar at all.

I'm afraid I've no suggestions though because Seasons is pretty unique in my collection. Dominion has the whole card thing (drafting, hand management, deck-building) and combos but I don't think they feel particularly similar. Plus Seasons is way better anyway. whistle

Smash Up?

Maybe I am being harsh, but to me they are both just play cards and do whatever the words on them say. Not that is a problem, I like Seasons well enough with 2. Smash up is lighter obviously.

Yeah, I was puzzled by that , too. The only thing I could see that Glen More had in common with Seasons was the letter E.


I actually prefer Glen More, though.

I think if someone said "name a game that's the complete opposite of Seasons" then Glen More would be a pretty good choice.

But maybe there is another game called Glen More since someone recommended it in that thread for a fan of party games Or maybe it's some running joke that I'm not in on.

You could always just go to the darkside and play Magic the Gathering

You know, in one of the Seasons reviews, the writer compared it to Lords of Waterdeep. Now, it made a weird sort of sense, and I wonder if someone would think the same going the other direction.

How about City Tycoon?
Well, I've my reasons.
While Seasons drafting using cards, in City Tycoon we draft district tiles. Well, though the different is, in City Tycoon the drafting takes place each phase (1-4), while in Seasons you draft cards for the whole 3 years.
And in City Tycoon you need to pay the cost to build a district in the form of money instead of energy token. Then these district tiles can be activated once each round by supply them with energy or goods. Looks like has the same game play and mechanic right? But they have 2 different unique game plays. In City Tycoon, there is no dice and has a transporting / delivering mechanic.

I made that comparison in my review (it's possible someone else did too) but I'd say it would be disappointing to go from Seasons to Waterdeep - in Waterdeep you put in a lot of work (acquiring adventurers in order to fulfil quests)and only a few of your quests end up having on-going benefits whereas in Seasons it's much easier to summon a card, and most cards have ongoing benefits. It's the stacking benefits which I particularly enjoy in Seasons and which give it an engine-building feel.

7 Wonders and Seasons have card drafting, Dominion does not...

Anyway. If you're looking for more drafting: 7 Wonders might be an option for you though I personally prefer Seasons. City Tycoon also has drafting but I've never played it myself.

Magic the Gathering [obviously] is very similar too. And if you only build a draft cube (Is that the right term?) the cost should be manageable too.
