I wish I had the opportunity for a sit down lunch every day.  Even better to be able to play a good game, too :)

Looks like a neat little game, too.  I dig the 12 siders.

it's a fun little game.  You really do get to build a decent little kingdom in 30 minutes

pretty simple, too -
Ore gets collected from mountains and helps build your tower
Mana gets collected from forests and helps increase your magic level
Food gets collected from plains and lets you put more guys on the board

More guys = more you can collect, but you have to be able to move them around (map gets crowded fast)
But you can't just collect food b/c it's useless in a war
Mana counts double in your resources for a war, but if you use it there, you're not using it to up your magic level and unlock racial abilities
Ore counts for some war resources, but building your tower is *only* good for points, and not for any in-game ability

so there's a nice little balance there
