    We got this last weekend and have only played one game so far.
    It was really fun!

    I think the rules are easy enough to learn after one playthrough, though they could probably do with some more consistency and less edge cases (the mechanics for mustering at ports, ports in general, and travelling by ships are all fairly complicated).

    We had heaps of fun, and had one player make a sneaky last minute grab for power which was successful he managed to win the game; which was great to see.

    Just got this game and I have played it three times so far. I am really looking forward to when I can play it again. Addictive game. I really like how there really isn’t a mechanic for allying. You can just say you have allied and support your ally’s troops. It allows them to back stabbing to occur at any time.

    Really, really want to try this. But it’s a 3-hour game, and I have too many other things in line. This one will have to wait until I get a real job.

    This is one of my favorite games. I love how its like Risk but without dice/chance and it relies a lot on diplomacy to get you through. The house cards add to the strategy of it and combine to make it a fun strategy game. Add in music from the TV show and you got yourself a good night.
