Villagers Review

Villagers has certainly got the buzz hasn't it? Made a killing at the Expo and is winning a lot of players over? Sounds like a hype/buzz train to me. I best buy my ticket via Kickstarter and take a look-sy for myself! Is this drafting tableau game unique enough to set itself apart? Will the box be a thing of perfection or a niggling burden? And are these villagers a little........too alike?
