I really wanted to like this game. The steampunk theme and art are very attractive to me, and the rules seemed simple enough.

Art is beautiful (especially the money)
Component quality is amazing
Simple rules
Replay-ability (for others) would be expansive

Planning 4 turns is difficult
Plans can be ruined for 4 whole turns
The only player interaction is unintentional
Mostly multi-player solitaire
The airships seem a little big for the board

I was very excited to play KoAaS, but was really disappointed by the game play. I’m sure there are plenty of people that would enjoy this type of game (my husband, for one, loves the game) but I just can’t wrap my head around the planning ahead 4 turns (I never could play chess either). I guess it’s just not for me.
