Reviewer: Ed Bradley from United Kingdom I''m loath to "review" this as I think I need at least 5 plays to fully understand it, but there is something special going on in this game.
It''s a wonderful, totally absorbing, innovative contest for area control with asymmetric powers and excruciating decisions. It''s utterly compelling and also a lovely box of quality components.
It reminds me in some ways of a modern version of Dune; the diplomacy and the need to time your moves and seize opportunities as they arise "feel" very similar to the vibe of the old classic.
