After a few plays of this with three people this should not really be called a deck builder but a deck stripper - you have to reduce your deck to get to one of the main win conditions (and if you want the interest of seeing all your cards) and there is often few reasons to actually buy cards from the tableau, in fact some Civs you just do not want to buy cards at all unless they are very positive for you.
And the rulebook is atrocious for learning the game, there are some aspects of the game you don't even know are there unless you watch a video or see someone mention it in a forum (and I'm a veteran of hundreds and hundreds of rulebooks, most much longer than this one).
In the end it may be fun (over a looong period) to build out your empire but you won't be in for the win doing that, just the experience. I suspect solo against the Bot, I haven't done it (I don't do solo games) may be the best (only) way to play it.

Im liking this game the more I play it. Good review again David, you seem to be on a Osprey games binge.

I've not had issues with the rule book. The only major omission is in the solo rules and how to deal with unrest cards. Perhaps Im playing it wrong and just have not realised. The game is a little fiddly. THe main crime as noted in the review, is that it runs longer than it should. At 90 minutes i think this would be a really solid game at 250minutes less so
