On the first play we died horribly - it was over in 40 minutes. The second play took close to three hours, and while the first two hours were tense, by the end we won almost too easily - people were doing goofy things (let's all visit the carnival in Dunwich, I've never been there before), just because they had the leeway to do it. I liked that you can't predict how it's going to turn out and that each play had a very different feel. It was a truly immersive game.

FUN, but a fiddly beast. It needs the right set of gamers to shine. With too many newbies it gets bogged down.

Heavy pure negotiation.

I would play this often with the right group, but
I would never want to play this with the wrong group, which says more about me as a player than it does about the game. Negotiation isn't my favorite mechanic, and this game was made for those who love negotiation and interaction. I prefer either cooperation or being the master of my own fate.

I had a lot of fun playing this game and can admire it for what it is.

The interaction in this game is phenomenal. I haven't played anything else that feels like this. Original, innovative, and FUN!

The special interests tie to the lobbyists during elections and the impact of protesters is gneius.

There is a lot of game in this little box!

I like the way all the characters are broken in their own way, and that I get a fairly even fight with my gaming partners when everyone plays to their character's strengths.
I like that the game plays completely differently depending on which character I'm playing.

Awesome, frenetic game. It's a nice change of pace! It's fresh & original and the optional curses and treasures mean it won't get too easy or too stale with repeated plays.

ANOTHER gift from my BGG BF! Thank you! You are too thoughtful & generous by far.

Better than a beer and pretzels game, easy to teach, fun, decions that matter, reacting to the dice. Scratches the itch for a fun light game.

GenCon 2013 purchase. Signed by James Ernest.
James Ernest was a super-fun person who I'd like to sit down and play a game with!


Update: we played this and liked it so much that we bought color coded dice to dress it up!

There is (just) enough going on to keep the players engaged and busy thinking about they want to do next, but it is a pretty simple game.
Smooth, streamlined mechanics.
Fantastic production value.

Downside: Only medium replayability. Everyone really liked it, but every game will feel exactly the same.

This game was done exceptionally well. When i first heard the name and that it was coop, I cringed, hoping that it was NOT an all against one game with someone playing the opposition...which would have been WRONG.

No need to worry, the game is a fantastic pure coop, with real historical characters and events. The economic weight of the underground railroad is felt as the players try to support their mission to free people in every way possible. It is a very strategic game. I have to admit I hate losing this one more than a normal game, but it creates renewed respect for the people who championed this cause.

Rated 7 for being good at what it is: a children's game that adults can enjoy playing, too. Each player moves and changes the maze on their turn as they try to make their way to the treasures they need, making this much more strategic and engaging than the vast majority of children's games out there.

Streamlined and very strategic. The theme isn't terribly present in gameplay. Appeals to AmeriTrash lovers AND Euro lovers.

I like it, but some of the scenarios are much better than others. And, of course, the set up is so laborious that it doesn't get played as often as it might otherwise.

My game group felt that this game was so brutal that it felt like being punished. That's the first time I've heard them refuse to play a game because the theme came across TaoO WELL. I thought the game was good, but sold it since it wasn't going to get played again.

This gets requested on meetup game days more than any other game. It has wide appeal. I know of three people who went out and bought it immediately after playing my copy.

It has an interesting hidden team mechanic.

Fast and fun. The combination of races makes this more interesting and challenging than it might be otherwise, and has the added benefit of keeping this fresh, since they randomly change each game.

This is a great game. The only problem is that the locations that are the most fun are copyrighted so that the game designers couldn't use them. My best advice is to buy this for the brilliant but simple game design, and art, and for teaching the game. Then make your own locations to add to the game for the added impact and added fun.
