I played Snowdonia. It’s a worker placement and cube converter. The interesting thing is that there’s a weather system and as the weather is sunny some actions get better, rainy and they get worse, and you can’t take them at all during fog. Everyone gets to see the weather for the next two turns, so while it’s random you do have some reasonable look ahead.
One of the actions is to draw a card from a few available choices, which provide special powers (one shot) as well as a “Have X at game end to earn points” ability.
One of the players asked if I thought it was JASE, and at the time I wasn’t sure. But it strikes me as an evolutionary change on worker placement, so I’m shrugging and saying Yes.
