PLANET RUSH (Victory Point Games, 3 to 5 players, ages 13 and up, 30 minutes; $32.99)
Few game designers are as adept at reinventing their games as Reiner Knizia. Somehow, some way, Knizia manages to reimplement his successful designs and makes them seem a bit different while doing so. Such is the case with his Tower of Babel (featured over a decade ago in the Summer 2005 Gamers Alliance Report) which has been reimagined into Planet Rush as the setting of the ancient world has transformed into a newly discovered planet called Zenobia. Now, instead of attempting to construct the 7 Wonders of the World, players will attempt to colonize/build 7 of the 8 possible structures on Zenobia with the most successful becoming master of the planet.
