This review is from: Notre Dame (Toy)
Before I actually played the game I was a bit sceptical, mainly because of the artwork. It seemed to me like washed away colors and too small illustrations.
After the first 2 plays however, the illustrations make sense and you can easily remember with a glance what everything does. Also I appreciate the few and light components that take only 2 minutes to set up the game. The theme is also not bad, and especially the plague feature adds to the feel of the game.
The gameplay is simple, and the game has a fast pace. However there are a lot of meaningful tactical choices to make that can help you and you can try to make the other players life a bit more difficullt.
There is some minor luck element that adds some fun, in the form of what characters are available each round, but winning or losing does not depend on luck, as it is your choises to adjust each round that actually matter.
When the 9 rounds of a session are over and the winner is declared, there is always in our group a feeling that we want another play. A simple, intutive game with enough tactical and strategic depth that can be enjoyed by a variety of people.
