good game. love the artwork and components
great game, table enjoyed it. Looks daunting at first but quickly comes together
This game is a great game to play with friends or by yourself. The 7 different areas on the board all offer a challenge and starting with just 4 cards and 6 workers really makes you have to strategise especially for the first day or two. There are 4 "days" rounds in the game. I also love the fact that you can get some VP's as you go, but you don't add all of them to the end so you really don't know who has won until you add all the different factions up, this way everyone keeps trying to the very end to get those extra points. There is also the feature if you don't get the the top of the palace, then it doesn't matter how many other VP's you have you can' t win, which is a fun twist. Once you get used to the icon system, the game is very easy to follow - when you first start out though they have a great rule book with some clear pictures and explanations of the decrees and travel tokens. I would highly recommend this game - it's medium, just starting to get a little bit towards the heavy side. But it is around the hour to 90 minutes in length so you can play it more often when you don't have time for the 3-5 hour games.
