PLANET (Blue Orange Games, 2 to 4 players, ages 8 and up, 30 minutes; $34.99)
One of the effects of many of the games we play is that, whatever you do, be it leading an army, solving a crime, constructing a city or building a financial empire, players feel powerful. To shape and control so much is a heady feeling. But in this Urtis Sulinskas design, that feeling of power is heightened. Players do not command armies or cities or anything so mundane. They are, instead, building an entire Planet!
