After the Empire took us by storm in in recent plays. I was very skeptical of what they were going to try and did a wonderful job with the theme. Love when a game keeps the theme going through the turns, regardless of the actions you are taking.

Spartacus is a classic game that was never high on my list to play because of the Intrigue section. I had heard about how it was around negotiating with people, then maybe doing some backstabbing, so never really seemed like my type of game. However, glad I sat down with the new release and played it. I will say, how the intrigue plays out is definitely dependent on who is at the table. Our group isn’t strong players when it comes to that social mechanic, so the game took a bit to get up to speed, but we did get into it as the game went on. Glad I finally got it to the table.

Then there comes the rebirth of two card games that we had played in the past from Plaid Hat. It was good to see the changes Plaid Hat made and hope these games are successful for them.
