  • Fast setup, quick play, and easy to get a game up and running and finished without a lot of fuss. Simultaneously, enough depth and strategy to keep everyone engaged.randybFebruary 3rd, 2014 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I really like this game. It has a lot of strategy if you really want to play competitively, but the simple game mechanics make it very easy to learn for new players and non-gamers alikeapellaJanuary 18th, 2013 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Real fun game that can be played with non-boardgamers as well as gamers. Plenty of strategy in trying to figure out who is what character in a round.MaliciousAbyssJanuary 15th, 2013 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Great group game. Friendly and accessible to casual gamers. The way the roles shift around is fun.haashouseAugust 29th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Great things come in small boxes. Role selection, bluffing...all great elements of a great game. Works better with more people IMHO.carbonfiber25August 28th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I played this game a lot for some period, we were really into it. Alas that was many years ago, but I'd love to get back into it.wlievensJuly 24th, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • If it wasn't for The Resistance, I'd say it was the best game per cubic inch around, as it is, it'll have to settle for a second. Great mind game.CunningAllusionmentJuly 24th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • My favorite 2 player game. Absolutely brilliant with 2 or 3 players, but the luck factor and the downtime between turns quickly gets out of hand with more than that.BuddytheRatJuly 23rd, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • A true classic of the genre, this game regularly hits the table. Great gateway game, medium filler, with great interaction coming from the anonymous role selection mechanic.sunwukungJuly 23rd, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • I enjoy this game! It's a nice quick game that can be learned quickly, but can require some more skill/guesswork if you want to think about it. Included expansion gives it good replay value.JesseJanuary 22nd, 2012 8 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • It's a great gateway game to get people into the board game world. It doesn't take too long to play and it's a blast. I love the way the different roles change the feel of the game from turn to turn.VoidJanuary 11th, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
  • Awesome quick game! Great for parties with people who don't necessarily play board games.DarkJodoJanuary 3rd, 2012 9 Luck Strategy Casual Intense Complex Simple
