Bought as part of the recent BDC sale, along with Caylus and Eclipse. Yet to even open those games as my attention has been divided between NH and Zork (I'm in an IF retro mood). I absolutely *love* NH thus far in (4-player AI - although waiting for my friend to return from holiday to play 2-player MP. It is, after all, a 2-player game at heart). Took me 30 minutes to decipher and get to grips with NH (gameplay, not strategy - that's going to take *much* longer). Although attempting to play as Hegemony straight after Borgo, almost caused me to hurl my iPad in disgust across the lake in Victoria Park! I *love* the fact that one can play in 15 minutes and still get a great deal of thinking done. NH concentrates on tactical play, not having to remember a million and one bits of different information. 2 quibbles: the actual tile icons are initially confusing, but light years from Race for the Galaxy WTFness. Turning piles prior to placement is a major PITA. Any chance of adding directional arrows to click 'n' twist? In terms of pure gameplay, this is Ascension good (I've only recently been playing with the expansions in Ascension) in so many ways.
