Greed is good...

Games allow us to step into roles we never thought we would get a chance to experience: explorer, investigator, wizard, space captain. These roles tend towards the heroic, giving us a sense of accomplishment as we save the world, defeat the villain, liberate the populace. Sometimes a game comes along that allows us to experience the other side of the coin: to manipulate, exploit and subjugate. Magnate: The First City, the debut game from designer James Naylor allows us to do just this, putting us in the shoes of someone with only one thing on their mind. Money. Lots of Money.

Nice preview! I'd like to try this one. One thing I keep wondering when I see pictures of this game... the buildings seem overly large. Is this game more of a table hog than it really should be?

It does have a fair amount of real estate (boom tish) but they don't feel unnecessary to me. Could have been done with tiles I guess but it might not have made things as easy to grok at a glance. I'm just disappointed you can't get the lego buildings James used in earlier prototypes.
