Mine is pretty high, I'm on the wait list at my FLGS.  Having said that, I already anticipate a desire to create a house rule that will incentivize conquer and the military track in a different way.  I'm actually going to post about this.  Hope to hear from ya'll over there later.

Not much interested. Looks too complicated for me.

I've heard good stuff about it but right now I have so much to play and gaming friends that buy a ton of stuff that I'm not super excited to bring anything new in.  I would certainly play it but I won't be seeking it out for now.

Trent and I are considering the pre-order for the sake of trying it out and making a review video on it, but not sure how often it would get to the table.

I'm excited to play Tapestry, but I'm not absolutely dying to do it. We'll play it soon in our game group (just arrived for one of the peeps), but despite that, we still played a different game last week. Scythe is great and I love Wingspan, and I also really like Euphoria, so I have hopes this will be just as good, despite the rather blasé (to me) theme.

Let us know how it goes! It feels like an anomaly among other Stonemaier games, but it's all just speculation haha.

By the way, I've played and enjoyed Wingspan and Viticulture, and curious about Euphoria too. How does Euphoria compare?

EDIT: I've always enjoyed reading dystopian novels during school years so the theme alone sounds like it would be fun.

Euphoria is a different feel than anything they've put out. It's worker placement in nature, but the more workers you have out, the riskier things get for you and you may be forced to lose some. Neat mechanics, a somewhat confusing board at first, but it doesn't take too long to get a hang of. I'd put it below Wingspan and Scythe as far as my preferences go, although I still really enjoyed it.

Pretty minimal interest here as well. It feels too all over the place, Just a bunch of different rules and mechanics thrown together to make a really pretty game.

You know, it might look different in person, but it was my first time seeing a Stonemaier Game and thinking to myself that it doesn't look great, at least not on the same level as some of their other games. Just aesthetics wise, I feel like Viticulture and Wingspan are superior and pulled off really well in terms of having a cohesive and solid theme. For Tapestry, I like what I'm seeing individually (illustrations components, etc.), but can't really see them meshing well together. I'd probably enjoy the game regardless though, since their games have never gone wrong with me. As a relatively new gamer, I've found their games to be excellent intros into different mechanics at a light-medium/medium level with enough of a challenge.

The painted miniatures just look kind of weird and don’t seem to match the rest of the game. 

I love civilization building PC Games but the theme doesn’t always translate as well to board games.

It just feels like a really weird theme to me. Their last couple of games have just been deeply thematic and this one is just all over the place.

Moderate interest. I think that I might enjoy playing it but I can’t imagine my game group liking it. And my family definitely isn’t ready for it.

My interest level is quite low. The theme is just all over the place. The table presence is nice but also HUGE. The game play seems contemplative and a little bit of everything. I've owned/played several Stonemeier games and while I enjoy them, none has stuck with me like Scythe. Even Wingspan, while gorgeous, just doesn't call me back to playing it. I do hope the upcoming expansion helps that.

I'm wary about Stonemeier games now. Great production, but I worry about the game itself now.
