The perfect filler/intro game.
Fun light ...
Fun light game to play with newer players. I'm a bit annoyed with the buy the 5 point cards strategy that I've seen win. Hoping to play more to see if we don't let one person buy high point cards if they still win or not.
Quintessential engine conversion game. Simple, fun, but gets old pretty quickly.
Quick, simple, and satisfying engine-building race.

The more I play this game the more I like it, great filler game and feels really good to get a good gem engine going!

Buying gems, mines, trade routes and storefronts to attract noble investors. The theme is dull, but the gameplay is economic engine building boiled down to its quintessence.
May not be...
May not be the most exciting theme, but it is a fun quick game and my wife likes to play it, which is a HUGE plus in my book.
For whatever reason, I like this game. In fact, I wanted to play it again right after the first play. After the cards were placed, a hush came over us and we played quietly and thought about which tokens to take and which cards to take all the while hoping the other players don't take what you need! Thinking of picking it up for my collection... Not sure at the moment though.

Poppy didnt want me to buy it... Robin/Kjartan has this.

Easy to teach, but kind of quiet. It's a great game, but it can be frustrating for its lack of player interaction. I find it very challenging to go against particular strategies, and I just don't really enjoy it anymore. Would almost always rather play a Century game.
Great game, it always feels like it ends too soon which is a sign of a great game for me.

Its got a pretty face, and that's about it. Perhaps I'm missing something, but this game feels incredibly scripted. Target the high prestige cards and pick up a noble on the way. Not only that, but despite the random nobles and nature of drawing cards, each game plays very similarly. With only a path or two of worthy strategies to explore, this game burns out quickly.
Holy crap ...
Holy crap did this surprise me. Quick, simple engine building. Not much to it, but still surprisingly fun. Not uncommon to play 3 or 4 games in a row.
Great and ...
Great and fast game that is easy to teach and fun to play. Not very deep and gets repetitive in quite fast. Another downside is that the box is way to big for the contents of the game.
A lighter ...
A lighter engine building game. A lot of players get caught up in the cheap engine building when they should be focusing on buying better cards that aren't necessarily free. This game grew on me as time went on as I initially didn't enjoy it at all, but then it became a more enjoyable experience as I explored it more.
(11/15) 7. (9/17) Drop to 6. Actually JUST played this and liked it more than I thought I might but it's a little bit lighter than I would generally prefer.
Simple but almost perfect. really like this at 2-3 players :)
