Our family loves this game. Almost zero downtime keeps everyone happy. 7 player goodness in such a small box. Neat set collection mechanic with a take that element that keeps it nice and light. The instructions suck so be be prepared to mentor new players verbally.

The iconography can be taxing for the first few minutes - though there are excellent player aids here on the geek - but what follows is a fresh, unique set collection card game that scales to perfection.

For some, there may be a bit too much of the "take that" element present here, but it is not quite as disruptive in this implementation as it is in other games. In fact, I consider it more a form of mild chaos than a true "take that" mechanic. In any case, this is a game I will always be up for.

Parece complicado mas é um jogo muito facil de comecar a jogar. Mesmo quando se explica as regras a um aglomerado de gente, a sensacao geral aponta para que ninguem tenha percebido, mas todos acabam por conseguir jogar em 2 minutos. Consegue ser divertido, todavia, deveria ser mais curto, pois prolonga-se um bocado e ja nao deixa vontade de jogar um segundo jogo. Gostei do facto do autor ter colocado a pontuaçao das cartas de 7 a 13, o que faz com que nenhumas duas cartas possam valer menos do que qualquer outra isolada. A experimentar e jogar de vez em quando...

This was the best new game I played at the Gathering 2006. I enjoyed the anticipation of turning over my card. Call me nuts, but it felt like Carcassonne meets Rummy. Instead of turning over a tile, you turn over a card and decide how you want to use it. And I loved the way you could secretly meld bomb a player. Tense and fun.

A great little "Take That" game. Backstabbing is so commonplace that you end up gleefully anticipating an opportunity. I was a bit apprehensive to try this with my daughter, she doesn't like direct conflict games, but after a couple of rounds she was dishing out as good as she got.

The Sheriff of Nottingham is in trouble! His time in power is nearing its end, and he hasn%u2019t quite managed to get enough cash together to buy another year in office. So he sends his Deputies out to collect the overdue taxes and promises to promote the most successful Deputy to the rank of Chief Assistant. Is it any wonder, then, that the Deputies think nothing of occasionally picking their colleagues%u2019 pockets?An interesting card game that seems like it would play best with 4-6 players. Recommended.

Fills an important niche in my collection: plays 3-7, doesn't take hours, can be explained rather quickly, and yet isn't just a filler.

Very good little light "Rummy-like" game, with a card-stealing direct player interaction mechanism that fits the theme perfectly. Lost it's shine a little after 30 or 40 plays (mostly online). Which is good going for me. Most games are lucky to see 5 plays.

A pretty fun, if somewhat light, game. I really like that most information is public or can be fairly easily deduced. I haven't figured out if there's a logic behind the number of cards to get favors (it seems like there is, but I haven't been able to get it to work to my advantage). Probably could've benefited with a slight reduction in play time, but it's not excessively long for what it is. Also always nice to have games that support 7.

Pros: Interesting card mechanics
Nice components
Small size
Scales well
Much player interaction

Cons: My set is missing the green pawn card
I wish the pawns were used in some fashion

Conclusion: Nottingham is a great lunchtime game with many choices and player interaction. For the price I paid, I'm getting my money's worth.

Received from BGG Secret Santa, December 2008

May 2009 -- We've played this twice and have enjoyed it both times. I believe we will play it several times a year.

October 2011 -- After several more plays, we became familiar with the somewhat cryptic card designs, and began to really enjoy this game. We play it fairly often now.

2013-November: This game has caught on with the family, and we have a fun time with it.

A fun set collection game with some hidden, some open, and some "need to remember" info. The interaction between players feels a bit forced, and also rewards players who are in the mood to remember what cards have gone into other people's hands. However, I won even while generally (not totally) ignoring what cards other people had. I most enjoyed the fact that a 9-year old played with the sole purpose of messing with his father, who still cam in second.

A nice light, and very friendly screw-your-neighbour type of game, I like that the actions only ever result in the trading of cards rather than stealing or eliminating. The rules are very easy to describe when using the cards as aids.

A good set-collection game where, surprisingly, only a very small amount of cards are hidden. Has stealing mechanisms but the person affected always gets something in return. Scales well with player count and even works well at 7 players.

Played twice (with 6 players). I have been pleasantly surprised by this game (maybe I expected something closer to Bohnanza, which I dislike). There is some randomness or targetting possibilities, but not as much as you could fear, and playing it was quite enjoyable.

Needs playing aids - then it is one of the best 5/6/7 player games - very fast and enjoyable - seems very "Take that" but it is balanced so it never hurts that much!
