I expected, based on the title and art, that Arctic Scavengers would be more exciting. It's a solid deck builder, but doesn't do enough to differentiate itself from the legion of other deck builders that exist.
I think Architects might be, for us, the weakest of the West Kingdom trilogy. Our biggest complaint is that the game ends far too fast. Building, the point of the game and the end game trigger, happens often enough that if you are playing with experienced players the game ends very quickly. Often so fast you don't have time to really dig into it. So good for new players, but I wouldn't recommend it if you're looking for a deep experience.
A decent little game, played well and 2 and 3 players. Inexpensive, and great for beginners.
Wicked 3-5 player game.
