Doesn't seem strong. It's slightly stronger with 'Cities' expansion (diplomacy tokens allowing you to skip combat).

But it's a welcome variation hence the same rating as the base game.

A decent promotional expansion. I'll add it to the mix pretty much every time I play with leaders. There's nothing particularly special about what it adds, but more variety is appreciated.

I like this card. If you've got some other leaders or a wonder that is geared toward not fighting, or if you're playing with the Cities expansion where you can use the peace tokens to avoid fighting, Louis can be a cheap 7 points.

An extra leader for 7 Wonders. It's a cheap 7 points if you are pursuing a non-military strategy and extra content is always nice.

Louis Armstrong is a pacifist coming from the arts side of civilisation, so he offers 7vps - the number of military tokens a player earns.

What apparently seems to be a nice bargain of 7 victory points for someone who stays completely out of military in fact carries a very steep opportunity cost of - exactly - not engaging in miliary at all. That automatically deprives you of a potential 18 victory points and - even worse - enables your neighbours to snatch easy military VPs by investing just a minimum of red cards.

My first promo card of the Leaders, and I think it's a good one. Finally showed up in play after having it for over a year!

In short, Louis benefits players that go the pacifist route, as you can get up to 7 points for him - but less for each military victory you have. Would pair very nicely with diplomacy cards in the Cities expansion, and also if you can snag the Spies Guild.

Do you need this? If you can snag one easily, it's worth it for 7 Wonders fans, but don't go out of your way for it.

Louis is a pretty good leader as he can give you 7 VP for a cost of just 4 gold. However, if you do play him, the chances are that your neighbours won't focus that much on military (just like yourself) and just build enough to narrowly edge you after each age, which will give them a lot of points. Also, I have to point out the name; yes, Stevie Wonder was a funny pun - Louis Armstrong is not... I guess they were trying to do the same thing they did in Ghost Stories with names like Chuck No-Rice and B-Rice Lee, but that funny idea failed too when they introduced Jean Claude van Rice. Oh well, Louis is still a neat card!
