The mankala-based action selection system is simply brilliant. What I love about this game is the deep sense of satisfaction it evokes when finalizing all your carefully prepared combos. Playing Trajan is an absolute joy every single time - well done Mr. Feld! This game burns my brain with the Mancala mechanism, but there is so much there that it is worth it. Lots of replayability, lots of interesting paths to take.

Maybe I'm not the best person to write a review for this - I'm not a fan of euros, or games where the theme is lacking. And the theme really doesn't come across here. I rather liked the way actions were being limited, which made the planning of actions quite interesting. It does require a lot of thinking about how you're going to make your next three or four turns, so you often have to focus on what you're doing rather than what your opponents are doing. So this game can be really quite independent from the other players - somewhat like a race.
