Appreciate the input. The length of TI is sort of repellent, the type of game that may haunt the table space overnight or longer given the player count. For what it’s worth, my group really enjoys our weekly Gloomhaven nights, so we aren’t component-wary, but maybe something this involved on a single game may leave people too exhausted for another session.TI4 is significantly more interactive and complex than Scythe, despite some overlap in genre/mechanics. But it also takes much longer to play and is really best with 6 (or 5). IMO, it's worth experiencing a couple times, but I wouldn't want to play it regularly (or own it). I also don't feel it's an especially social game even if you are trading goods/alliances with other players.
I haven't played MoM 2e, but I did own and enjoy 1e -- I think I'd like 2e even better due to the app handling a lot of the fiddly aspects.
