"The game plays smoothly, is filled with tough choices and tension, and is polished. This is a fine design, one that can be played over and over again and still offer a fresh feel and new options to explore." ~GregSchloesser, Co-Publisher of Counter Magazine

"I give this one two muskets up! It's an excellent game. It combines theme with really strong mechanisms behind it. It's not a super long game. It follows a very structured easy path. Easy to explain and understand. This is a great game that I am glad to see reprinted. I have had hours of fun playing it, and look forward to seeing a nice new edition!" ~Tom Vasel, The Dice Tower~
