Wonderful strategy game, with multiple paths to victory
I bought this game on a whim (as a suggested game from miniature market no less) as I am a fan of the designers (one of the same of Marco Polo and others), and I am very glad I did. I find the game very enjoyable.
I have introduced this game to three separate game groups who all loved it after a first play and couldn't wait to play it again, and several now want to buy it themselves.
I disagree with the podcasters review of this game. They all consider Lorenzo il Magnifico in comparison to be the better game. I think the opposite. So far the people I've introduced both games to think the same. Just typing about it now makes me want to play it again. A tad pricey in comparison other games (Teotihuacan: City of Gods for example on this site for $35.00 and that has more components and quality, although this game is preferred over that as well).
Newton is a very fun game and is highly recommended.
