3rd game of Terra Mystica today, and finally got the win! It can be a harsh game, absolutely no luck (no dice, no random cards or any of that). Its just a race to terraform the land into your preferred type so you can build on it. Pretty interesting, might be too dry for some (its almost semi-abstract in play). Certainly can lead to a bit of head scratching as you try and figure out the best path for points. Lots of different races to choose from, who all have special abilities, and different costs for the various skills. Expensive game, but for a slightly smaller than average sized box, its absolutely crammed full of nice wooden pieces.
