One I would love to add to my own shelves. Seems to have been everywhere a few years ago but never gained a champion in the media - but it's a really solid game. One I would easily recommend to any Cathala fan and one I will definitely be looking to add to my own shelves in the future for the right price.
Great game. Setup can take a while but possibly the most balanced game I have ever played with most games ending with only a few points seperation.
It's a thinky placement game combining Carcassonne (think placing farms) with Century (think buying cards for points with collected gems). A solid abstract of positioning and powering - never enough to do all that you want (a good thing). I like it as it feels good and looks good - never too restricted and provides several options each round for smart play. But even with all of that, it isn't too thrilling and feels a bit sluggish and sedate. Meditative perhaps? This dull feeling might be what makes it difficult to stay in my collection. So very good and solid, but not great.
