“I can already see that the game is improved greatly in the replayability department with expansions. After adding just one expansion the game REALLY opened up, so that is something to consider if picking this one up.”
“That said, I absolutely love this game! It has really climbed the list of one of my favorite games now and I highly doubt that will change anytime soon. It fits into a standard Kallax shelf with the greatest of ease almost looking like it was designed to fit perfectly with almost no overhang at all.”
Sebastian Beck review on BGG
“Very intense with meta-strategy options due to the different lords … this game is a stellar masterpiece and it will force me to sell the other games. I will never play them again.
Seriously, if you are slightly interested: BUY IT.”

“So definitely pick it up asap, as like other Petersen games (like Glorantha) you are looking at things selling out, and you will end up paying massive on ebay or somewhere.
They do plan on coming out with a PA 2 on Kickstarter later this year, and promise some interesting mechanics enhancements and new material. Exciting!!”

“Sandy knows game design. Petersen Games knows game design.”
“It’s one of those games you can learn by playing rather than attempt to teach prior to setting up.”
“It is oh so streamlined, and once you get the hang of the round, turns are going to move lightning-quick.”
