Outstanding 2-4 player game. Best with 2. Good with 3. Gets a little long with 4 but still do-able. There's a reason it's ranked in the top 10 board games of all time on BGG. Great mechanics and so much fun to play over and over again!

Love this game so much. It takes forever to set up with all the different pieces, but once you get going it's fun. Simple set of actions available, but so many ways to win. I love the theme and the quality of the pieces. Like others have said you want to play again because you feel there's always mo...see moreof the reviewer's review
