This is one of the best historical designs in years. It captures the period remarkably well and consequently each different player has unique situations and challenges. Anyone with even a vague interest in the period should buy it or anyone who wants a challenging six player game (haven't played the versions with fewer players).

Definitely among my top three favorite CDGs of all time. Absolutely love the balance of religion, wars, and exploration.

Outstanding. I love card-driven wargames, and the mechanics really shine with this time period. It's an incredibly well-written rulebook (considering the complexity of the game). The artwork is great.

This game is a jewel. It is the best game I've played in 2006. It's so amazing the way all the factions fit in this
assymetrical design that every session leaves you thrilled. If you love history, definitely you'll love this masterpiece.

I was a playtester for this game. As a Lutheran theologian, I love the theme and the gameplay. This is one of the finest games for roleplaying and storytelling. It also scales brilliantly for different numbers of players and different lengths of time. I find myself liking it more and more after each play.

After first game I'm thrilled. I found that HIS delivered what it promised, 10 hours were filled with political plotting, scheming and backstabbing. Game is full of theme & historical fluff and it just enforces my love for this game. Only thing that I mourn is that most of the players I played this with thought that it was way too long. Now I fear that the chances to get playing this again are horridly low.

Yes, it's long. Yes, it involves randomness. Yes, it has a lot of rules. But that shouldn't be held against it. If you don't like that kind of game, play a different one. For the kind of game it is, it's a masterpiece.

This is easily the best of the multiplayer CDGs, especially because of its well developed diplomatic rules and the difficulty of sieges.

Amazing in both scope and gameplay. This is THE best game for variable player powers. Not only do you have variable player powers, you have variable player goals, and even variable player mechanics. There are complete subgames like piracy and the religious struggle that most powers never participate in. All this and the game still seems impeccably balanced. I've seen every single power win, a rarity in games that are so asymmetrical. This game takes a play or two to get a good strategic grasp of it, which is only unfortunate when you consider that it can take 8 hours or more to finish a game. Still, when you're going for an all-day historical wargame, you can't do better than this.

Wow. I've never seen a game with this much historical detail. Each of the six factions has truly unique abilities and objectives, yet seem pretty balanced. Although in my 12 6-player games, I have yet to see the Ottomans win.

Game 1: 3 player, England/Protestant Win (me)
Game 2: 6 player, Papacy Win
Game 3: 6 player, England Win
Game 4: 6 player, France Win (me)
Game 5: 6 player, Protestant Win
Game 6: 6 player, Protestant Win
Game 7: 6 player, Protestant Win
Game 8: 6 player, Protestant Win
Game 9: 6 player, France Win (me)
Game 10: 6 player, England Win
Game 11: 6 player, Hapsburg Win (me)
Game 12: 6 player, Protestant Win
Game 13: 6 player, England Win (me)
Game 14: 6 player, France Win

Own Mark Mahaffey's superb redux map & 2P Diplomacy Deck.

Let's see...
I can be King of England for a day - check
I can copulate to my heart's content - check
I can slap the foppish French King Francis around - I'm sold!
Brilliant game play and negotiation mechanics. More structured than TI3, yet just as intriguing due to the asymmetric victory objectives.

My fourth game played was my first as a non-English power (Protestants!). We ended on Turn 6, and even though I was the only player to get to 25 VPs, England ending up winning at the end of the that turn by 2 vp's (23 to 21 or so, no one else was close). Loads of fun!

Lost to the great basement leak of 2010 -- but replaced, because it's too good not to. If a better multi-player historical wargame exists, I don't know what it is.

I put off buying this because of the need for at least 3 players, but with the Diplomacy deck which came with C3i #19, I went ahead and bought it, mainly because of my interest in the theme, and because the learning the combat system and card play would help me with The Napoleonic Wars.

That said, the 2 player game concentrates very much on the religious struggle as the players are the Papacy and the Protestants, so a lot of the other stuff (like Piracy and the New World exploration) doesn't get a look in. Having played 2 player, I really want to try a 3 player game, but the chances are slim unless I can fix it up over PBEM.

Update - got a 3-player face-to-face game in and really enjoyed it. Now playing a 6 player PBEM game which seems to be moving at 1 card play a month so I keep foregetting what my stategy is :-)

Here I Stand does everything just about perfectly for me. The powers have variable abilities and goals, the cards interject just the right amount of limitation on actions and the diplomatic side of the game is just right.
