Such a great little card game with some beautiful art that really should be in print. There isn't much to the game, and there isn't much skill involved. Roll a dice, apply the result, draw a card, play a card. So you're reliant on dice rolls and card draws. What it does successfully though is cause interaction between people. Cause people to be confrontational when so often games encourage people into their own little space and applauds when you don't bother others. Which I feel is a shame. Highly deserving of a reprint though and I wish more games had this style art.

Surprisingly fun, and using the BGG suggested ratings deserves a 9 or 10, even though I would not rate it so high under other systems.

Fun game that I spent playing endless hours with friends when it first came out. I have used it in my classroom, but maybe now that it is rare, I should bring it home.

A simple card game with a rather unique theme and mechanic - roll dice to increase your population, then hope to survive once the "Plague" card comes out and your population begins to disappear.

A light card game based around the Black Plague of the Middle Ages.

This is one of my favorite games, and nearly impossible to find.

EDIT: I FINALLY got it! Thank you to the kind people who were involved in the trade to get P&P in my hands. Words cannot express my gratitude. I finally get to play this game after waiting nearly 15 years.

This game plays best with 5 or 6 players, rather than 2. It takes too long for the ship to arrive, which means lots of turns to build up the population. The ship will come much faster with more players.

Still, a ton of fun. Very glad that I got this game.

Personally, I love this card game. The theme is rather "dark" but the game mechanics are easy to understand, not too comlpex and make the game a whole lotta fun. After more playing I have upgraded this one to an 8! Really fun with more players.

I rated this game an 8 because I'd probably always be willing to roll some dice for 20-30 minutes. This game is innovative, but largely driven by luck. Players do get to decide if they're going to build improvements to slam opponents with strife, but, ultimately, I think it's luck with the dice that will determine the winner.

It's an 8, but a different kind of 8 than I would give to a really great historical simulation.

Now this is a fun little card game. Lots of action going on, with lots of opportunities to cutthroat your opponents. The game is easy to play/teach and is a lot of fun. Though the card in my version are pretty flimsy. Really hope they reprint this some day.

There is something special about this game for me. I love how the Death Ship splits this game into two phases. A fast & fun game that needs a reprint badly at this point (my copy is getting tattered)!

I remember purchasing this back when it had come out in the game shop I was working at. I grabbed it because I am a bit of a medieval history buff, and the art appealed to me. I have since played it hundreds of times. It's been camping, at parties, wherever. This was my gateway game. I have a special place in my heart for this one.

LOVE this obscure, fast-playing little card game. I first learned of it at work when a fellow MtG fan brought it as a 'break' game between rounds. We were between projects and had a lot of free time, obviously.

P&P has gorgeous period-esque art and quick, simple mechanic for a nice slap-fest game of mass death. Can't ask for a better filler item!
