PROS -Lots of different strategies mostly revolving around grabbing, managing, and converting resources. -Always something decent to do on your turn. -Components are cool and art direction is solid. CONS -Very little player interaction. -Board is wide open so reduces tension even further. -UN track might be a little over-powered. Absolutely necessary to hit that every turn. -Scoring is all end-game but this can be house-ruled to score as you go. OVERALL EE is a game I enjoyed on my first go and would happily play again. The lack of player interaction and lack of tightness on the board hold this back from a higher rating.

Fantastic game. Great at all player counts including solo. Bogs down when teaching. Rating bumped for amazing new "Clash of Nations" solo with A.I. cards. Point salad scoring is a bit cumbersome.

Played 3 player against Adam & Allan. Interesting theme for a worker placement. Liked it.

The worker placement and engine building in the game is really satisfying and provides lots of enjoyable decisions. The production quality is phenomenal, especially the resin oil barrels.

The theme is strong, but in the end it's just another resource conversion engine builder.

simply satisfying but don't know when it will get to the table again not solo

(10/17) 6. Very solid worker placement. Different building powers are very neat as is the individual pollution boards. A lot of stuff going on and I don't necessarily feel I got a chance to appreciate the game as a whole.
