Tom Lehmann mi ha riscritto su BGG.
Avevo domandato in un post perche' una persona dovrebbe comprare res arcana invece di un altro deckbuilding (ok definizione strasbagliata scusate ma non sapevo come definirlo ignoranza mia), quali erano le novita?

"Res Arcana is not a deck-builder, though managing your deck can be important as spending cards for essences is vital and some powers can recover cards from your discard pile.
Res Arcana is sort of a "mini" tableau builder, since you rarely place more than 3-4 of your 8 artifacts (placing more is usually a trap). Add to this your mage and magic item, 0-2 places of power and 0-3 monuments and you barely get up to 7-9 things in front of you by game end.
It's all about finding synergies and exploiting them quickly, while watching and reacting to what your opponents are up to, where each game and deck is unique.
It's definitely a game of timing, where there are lots of different things (cards that grant your opponents essences, cards that copy essences, magic item availability, a few attacks, new monuments being flipped up, are you contending for a given place of power, how fast is everyone's engine going, passing for 1 VP on the final round, etc.) that affect play and which you have to react to.
There may be only 40 artifacts, but 40 choose 8 is ~77 million random decks. That's a lot of variety (before we start counting Places of Power, Monuments, Mages, etc.).
If you're drafting with 4 players, say, then you'll see more cards, but there's still 40 choose 8 cards not in the draft pool, ensuring variety by what's not available to anyone in a given game.
Granted, about half the artifacts have fairly straight-forward resource generation/conversion powers, but the other powers vary a fair amount and you'll typically have at least 2 "unusual" cards in your deck to think about and decide whether you want to try to exploit them.
There's a thread that players have started listing various combos they've found. There's more... ;-)"
Condivido se qualcuno e' interessato.
Anche su questo gioco sono molto indecisa.
