My board game group in Kansas was confused and had a hard time following the game flow. Game flow and game mechanics today flowed easily with little confusion after the first turn. Which is saying a lot since my gaming group in Kansas play and enjoy many very complex games including Twilight Imperium. Whereas the guys I played with today play Table Top RPGs not Board Games.
The reviews were incredibly positive this play through. With the last play through it was more of a "well... you should keep working on it as it has promise but right now isn't good." I still got some negative feed back which I'm excited to work on getting integrated into the game. Hopefully I can actually come up with a finished name for the game as its a very serious strategy game and right now it has a light and silly working title. Next major test will likely be in January when I take it to Washington state to play test with some friends up there. Things are looking good!
