Great game, where power swings back and forth. Though find i play differently online where I evaluate the point value of different cards. Compaired to in person where i just try to get more shields that the other person in every colour and do not track the total score or cross, tower and sword values.

For a game that's this dry and abstract, I really love this. I just find myself grinning as I parry and feint with the placement of the blocking chits and get a lot of satisfaction from maneuvering to take a bonus chit. Also, I think it's a very attractive production. I'm definitely interested in getting my own copy and working it into the regular rotation of two-player games along with favorites like Jambo, Starship Catan, Kupferkessel & Co., and Battle Line.

Play this with the variant that says the game ends when there is only one row remaining and spend your influence tokens very wisely. You do not want to be out of those and give your opponent a free ride. Great game!

I think this is a pretty decent two player game, and I wouldn't mind adding it to the "play with the significant other" list. It's not really that confrontational, and it can have interesting choices. My only complaint is that when you start out your choice set is so large that the game is slow in the beginning as you try and figure out something good to do.

After more plays this card drafting game has grown on me. It has some meaningful decisions and after more plays I got a better grasp with the strategy. There is also a good amount of blocking in this game.

Just like Wallenstein, Cardinal Richelieu is another great game subject on a political/ religious/ military leader in the Thirty Years War. Richelieu was a leader who led France into war for the Protestant cause to stop Imperial Catholic aggression in Bavaria after the death of Swedish Gustavus II ("Lion of the North"), thus brining the war into the final stage. An irony to the Catholic since France was predominatly a Catholic country (really nobody can understand the French mind). I have interest in this game because of my growing interest in the War itself.

I wonder if this is similar to St. Petersburg? Maybe in theme, but probably not in mechanic.

See Kardinal & Konig.
