Played a few games of The Golden Ages. It's a short(ish) civ builder. I liked it quite a bit. It's very euro, but has a nice tech tree and some hidden goals that make sense. I feel that is an underrated game and would recommend it.
Still liking Jump Drive. It has some of the same iconography as Race for the Galaxy, but is easier to get into. It cuts out most of the Race steps and really streamlines play. It almost makes the predecessor irrelevant, but there is more luck involved, once you get experienced players playing.
