This game is quite a bit of fun. Not just a ton of control, but the deduction aspect makes it stand out to me. This is a game that I have no trouble getting just about anyone to play.

Any game I can play for hours and hours and not notice how much time has passed is top notch. The build-up to that one huge move, the balance between tactics and strategy, the ability to destroy the plans of others or see yours destroyed because your "friend" built a better federation than you out of nowhere: all of these factors make for a fantastic game. I also like the math crunch that occurs in the last two* rounds and the weird balancing act of rewinding your buildings to jive with the round scoring. This game might become a 10 for me. *Experts are probably crunching the entire game.

This was one of the first Euro games I ever bought. I had a hard time getting my wife interested, but my buddies and I enjoyed it quite a bit. I like the "screw your neighbor" aspect of edging in on other peoples' cities or cutting off their farmers. I haven't purchased any expansions, but I might in the future. There's a bit of luck in the tile draw, but it doesn't usually outweigh strategy. Scoring is kind of a pain and definitely contributed to some people I played with not becoming interested. UPDATE: My 7 year old daughter loves this game! We play without farmers, but it's still fun. I'm bumping up to an 8 due to her liking it so much.
Purchased 12/18/07 at Target on the cheap. Incredibly easy in its basic set up. Tilted the deck at first to increase difficulty, but then something dawned on me: stack the pieces on top of each other. We added a rule that requires any solo pieces already placed to have another piece placed atop it, except with the semi-circle. More fun but still not hard this way. Can't find it. (9/13/14)
Pure tactics with very little control. I don't know what I expected. Dealing out loads of damage is fun. The rulebook and flavor text are amusing. Traded 5/17
