I really enjoyed this until we had a couple poor games that just came down to the final round, and not due to any particularly climactic decisions. The game is literally only scored at the end, so the first couple rounds can often feel superfluous. It's not bad by any stretch but it's not really the game it presents itself as.


Bland colors, mediocre tokens, tedious and a bore.


So far, I have very much enjoyed my plays of the game at 2p. My wife, however, does not enjoy the take-that, conflict aspect of the game. So, it doesn't hit the table as much as I would like. The aspects that I love are simplicity in setup, some asymmetry in faction powers, hidden action selection, area control, and especially the bluffing mechanic. I like how the theme comes through in the board, token, and card art. Another bonus is that the game does not take very long to play, 60-90min. Really want to get a play in at a higher player count, which will surely add variability to game play and more player interaction.
