A attacks B and now B is weakened so C attacks B in 6 player games so I'll never play this with 5 or 6. Played with 4 and it's a decent game. Finally changed my mind. We started attacking once everyone got to about 5 or 6 VPs and 9VPs are need for victory. I still wonder how this game would play out if you had to get 2 additional VPs (so 11VPs in a 4 player game). Then there would be quite the battles. Still my overall sentiment is for a game that has battles but yet strongly discourages it doesn't quite do the magic for me. Imperial now that is a game I'm looking forward to trying.
Have tons of expansions and two base sets. I've never played it. My kids just play their own fantasy version of battles, etc. The pre-painted figures are awesome. Always buy when ToysRUS has their 2-1 sale.
FAQ says you don't ever run out of stones. Awesome game pieces and beautiful to look at. Only played it twice. Update: Ok now played 3 times.....first two times had way too many rules wrong. Not a bad game when played correctly. Still not sure if it's worth buying though.
