Agricola or Princes of Florence, and a back and forth race-to-the-finish feeling that hearkens back to Settlers (minus the mind-numbing endgame). And just enough die-rolling to keep the game as fun and thrilling as the recent Lords of Vegas. Brilliant. Seriously. It feels like this game was playtested for years and years before the final version was ever even considered.
And don't even get me started on how nice the components: the board, the dice, cards, rules, and every other single thing in the box. Top notch. This one was definitely worth the wait and I can't wait to play it again. An immediate classic.
