Why It's On The List
  • a low-bid construction card game - you need to underbid the competition and keep your workers "on the job"... it's a refreshing twist on standard auction game mechanics 
Tips & Tricks:
  • This game is occasionally dismissed as "blind bidding." Let's be clear here, people - if you're paying attention, this is NOT blind bidding. Sheesh.
  • The designer, Franz-Benno Delonge, created another much-loved city-building game - Big City (which will show up much later in my Top 100 list).
  • I also need to say "thank you" once again to Joe Huber who introduced this game to me.
