This game combines area control with auctioning, has multiple areas of competition (a la Queen's Gambit), is easy to learn and plays quickly. It's also a lot of fun. There is more strategy then luck - the cards that players auction, use, or discard are all fairly balanced (although the case may be made that the "add three resources of any type" is more powerful then the others).
Wow! May was a good month for gaming - I played more then twice as many games as April, and about 1.5x as many as usual months. I introduced my parents to Bohnanza and the Bucket King, and each time we went to visit them, both games were played at least once.

For May, I'd say that my most played game was King Lui - it seems to get
played at the start of every SSG as we wait for people to roll in. Lots of
Wizard and New England as well for the month.
