I am quite a fan of Stefan Feld and was excited to see Speicherstadt his newest release. It is a little bidding game with a neat little bidding dynamic where you can either by something you bid on or pass. The purchase price is always equal to the number of bids on an item but if you pass your bid comes off and the price goes down for the next player. With this as the main dynamic of the game there is also a nice interplay between resources and victory points. The game plays in less than an hour and tends to be fairly close. It is also very different from Feld's other games so is a great addition to your collection. If you enjoy St Petersburg I think you will love this as well.
