Joguei duas partidas rápidas e gostei do que vi, aguardo o lançamento oficial para jogar mais. Jogo bom para quem gosta de futebol e para quem gosta de cardgame leve e rápido. É preciso manter a atenção em três áreas da mesa, onde baixamos as cartas dos jogadores convocados, o ataque, o meio-campo e a defesa. Se conseguir fazer sequência de números de camisa do mesmo país, ganha um bonus considerável pelo entrosamento dos jogadores.
Based on my first play, the game seems great, I enjoyed it even better than Vinhos. Gameplay feels more fluid and fast than Vinhos with the same kind of hard decisions to be made. Hope to play it more soon.
It is very important to play first. Is there randomness? yes, it is there to every player. Everybody gets the same dice and the same cards to choose from. If you play first, you choose the cards first, you get to move your ship first, and to buy a quarter first. Then, there is a great chance you'll win the game.
There is also one more thing as much important as to play first. Making good plan when choosing the right dice, specially in the first rounds. If you manage to choose well your dice, but not playing first, you still have good chance to win, since there is a lot going on at the sea and at the city to compensate that.
Extremely light weight game, fun and fast! Although it is claimed in the box to be a game with violent scenes (as a joke, of course), this game may be fun to play with ten year´s old kids and older.
Easy to teach: you may be in one of two missions open on the table, draw one card, use one card. If you belong to the mafia, play a hidden card with the same color of the mission, if you are not, play a hidden card with the other color. When the mission ends (a certain number of cards), the Mob wins if there are the amount of money needed to accomplish it.
It works better with five or more people, when the police team have more than one player. With three or four it becomes very easy to find out who is the police. It does not spoil the game, it changes its jogability a bit, since it is also a good choice to reveal himself early in the game, because when revealed a policeman player may draw two cards to choose one from (a good advantage, even though he is in a one man team against two or three players).
What a nice party game full of laughs and bluffing. Played with nine people (some of them played in twos). The rule that says one must look in the eyes of the sheriff while declaring what is in the bag is mandatory!
This is a very very good medium weight game. The theme works well, it is fun and challenging. I don't find the contracts unbalanced at all. And they are really important to the final points, so your strategies must follow its demands.
This is a great game. My last play with three players was won by only one point! There are some different ways to succeed and the path is never an obvious one. Specialists have a very important role. There is so little time to make everything one would like to do. Everything seems important, and timing is essential. The weather tiles make the game change a lot from one play to the other. One must be prepared to the bad years to come, but how?
I´ve had more than twenty plays. It ´s a great game. In my opinion, it gets even better with a variant or two on the rules.
The Pope´s library is the one that deserves a variant, otherwise it is not very important, since everyone manage to get a book (value of 2-4 points, maximum difference between players will be 2 points, ok, this is a close end game, but it is too much on the luck factor). Let a player keep up to two books with only one chance to take them (if a player gets to the point of #2 or more on the track). This makes the track more interesting (may give 4-8 points and reward the investiment on this track).
