That's a great article! I like that aspect of many euro games. I think that's one reason why I like Heaven and Ale. When I played Raiders of the North Sea last week I was able to come from behind via the efficiency of turns compilation than ended up winning out. I love it when you can work internally with a games systems to devise an engine that's hard for other players to see clearly.

Agreed, it's not something that crossed my mind too much (and I can't think of many games that make you feel this way) but it's a real downer when it's obvious that you're doing horribly bad and the game reminds you of it every step of the way lol. Engine-builders are great at hanging that last straw in front of you :)
Come to think of it, I wonder if this series will cover games with catch-up mechanics like The Quacks of Quedlinburg where you're never too far behind of the leader.
