    Great review – appreciate your thoughts on this game. I would be interested to hear your take if/when you play with more than 2.

      Thanks! I’m not sure when I’ll have more than two players for things these days I’m afraid but I’m certain that the game would have more tension as each decision would impact multiple players. I think it’ll be good at lots of player counts 🙂

    Another interesting and informative review. Thanks!

    Reminds in a little of Carolus Magnus in that control of a color / group is only temporary and can shift during the game.

      I’ve not heard of that title before but it looks beautiful on BGG!
