This is a great but often overlooked game in the Uwe Rosenberg series with Agricola, Le Havre, and now Ora & Labora. A little less player interaction in this one, which may be a bad thing for some but a great thing for others. Fun and brain burning!
If you're into a tight economic game with tons of amazing components, look no further than the Gates of Loyang. For me, it's hard to differentiate yourself from your opponents by more than a point or so, but that is a positive if you prefer your games to be tense until the end!
If you think this looks interesting, also check out Agricola!
