Product Description

Conflict in the uplands! Two competing royal houses, Eagle and Rose, are trying to sieze as much land for themselves as possible. To gain the most winning points, the players play now for one, now for the other house. It is then by no means unusual for for a Traitor to turn coat in the midst of a conflict. Another player meanwhile tries his hand as a Builder of estates and offices or acts as a Diplomat to save what can hopefully still be saved. As a Farmer, a player is already laying supplies for the next conflict being thoroughly planned by the Strategist.

Far too random
May 10, 2005

I saw the 5-star review of this game linked from the homepage and had to come see if I had missed something when we played.

It's been a little while since we've played, so I'm a little rusty on the details, but I do know that we stopped playing after just a couple games because it was just too random. The traitor role was a spoiler, and in our experience made it irrelevent which roles other players chose. Players couldn't very well use strategy when choosing roles - you just sort of pick one and let the turn play itself.

Portable Board Game

This game gets 5 stars because of the value you get for the price. The game is fantastic, but at a normal board game price, I may have only given it 4 stars (which is still high for the way I rate games). The art is spectacular, the mechanics are novel (although borrowed by Bruno for Citadels), and the political ingrigue very cleverly balanced.
Great portable game
May 13, 2002

This is a great one if you are travelling and can't spare a lot of room. Gameplay is fast and competitive. Players have lots of options both to choose for themselves and to affect other players. Everyone seems to enjoy the short term alliances that you create. We have played this with casual gamers and it is always enjoyed.

During the game, each player chooses a different role each round. Each role has it's advantages, but none is overwhelmingly strong. There is some randomness (in that not all roles are available in each round), but this keeps things from getting to intense IMHO.

Bottom line: fun, social and fits in your pocket.
