I have only played this a two player game, and it was extremely lacking. All of the politics of the game (which is supposed to be an important role) are non-existent in a two player game. It should definitely be labeled for at least 3 players. It wasn't exciting, the cards are very repetitive and provide menial actions. Maybe better with more people, but I am in no rush to try it out.

8/2008 An everyone-pick-on-the-leader kind of game. The game fails at attempting to be funny and drags on forever with trivial discussions.

The game seemed interesting when looking at the box, but reading the rules, it was clear it wasn't very balanced between the characters and the "everyone gets +1" cards resulted in a lot of micromanagement and nuisances when you forget about the chain reactions.

Semi-broken but still fun. We have to play without one of the characters because his special power essentially makes him unbeatable. Otherwise it's a pretty fun hidden auction game.

I usually enjoy negotiation and back-stabby games but this one left me a bit cold. It felt like what should have been negotiations were no-brainers.

Definitely worth another shot.

And I don't care what anyone says, I love Foglio's art.

deep, but fairly quick, the rules are funny to read, the game play is fairly smooth, unique style of game play, partially take that, partially stock manipulation.

So far only played with 2 players. I think we missed much of the games charm without more players. I like the free wheeling negotiation element of the game. The theme is a little cynical and perhaps not suitable for all audiences but I generally like it.

Fun stuff. I'll have to give it a few more plays before I really get the hang of the strategy, but I like it a lot even playing cluelessly.

Warning....this game can get BRUTAL with the backstabbing and player-bashing. Don't play it with sensitive types.

if a night of backstabbing and arbitrarily picking on your friends sounds like fun let me know and we'll play a game of this. I love it, but it's not for the weak hearted. One of my favorite aspects of the game is that everything is negotiable and tradeable.

Fun with the right group of people!

Who are willing to haggle, negotiate, wheel, deal.

The Ambassador sucks, though. The player who plays him will not have as much fun as everyone else.

I played this at ConquestSF 2007. I just couldn't wrap my head around this one at all even after attempting to type out a summary of the simplified rules beforehand. The strikingly bright colors and cutesy artwork and names didn't help. I think it may only play well with five players. My game only had four players. The king's daughter seems to have a big advantage, as her backer won both games that I saw. The open-ended offering of payment to refuse penalty reminded me too much of Knizia's Quo Vadis game. Everyone else seemed to like it, so perhaps you should ignore my opinion. I think many of those who liked it played lots of role-playing games. At least it's short. Perhaps I could figure it out better on the second attempt. Games with "prestige points" aren't necessarily my thing either.
