0beron have you played with Pandora's Box yet? This is the alternate ending where when someone lands on the crown, everyone is kicked out of the region and you are dealt an armament of nasty cards to tactically pick and choose form to use as weapons against your opponents, to kill them
We have a pretty PVP heavy crowd and we always manage 6 players, having pulled the neighbor(s) in a few times when we lacked the 6th. Most (4 or 5 of us depending on who comes) sitting at the table have played the game with all expansions about 5 times now.
Even the first time player-neighbor who's gaming experience consists of Monopoly and that's about it, liked Pandora's Box, and he was the first one to get obliterated by it.
We are hosting a midnight beer and pretzels game (Well more like Subway ) at the convention for the three day weekend and using it as the default ending there. (Our local convention is kind of cool; If you host games, you get a badge and get a certificate/voucher for the dealer room, for the winner of said game(s))
On Monday we plan to bust it out again as well, during a bbq.
We have one player, Tim, who is not that into the PVP aspect of the game. He's a soft-spoken Navy vet around 50 and a little grey in the hair. He likes to play the Troll when we pick characters and is the only guy I know who WANTS to play the Chivalric Knight when he's playing in a game where he's dealt 3. He's played four games with us now and has a very good concept of the rules and the mechanics of the game. Even he enjoyed Pandora's Box, (He coined the Arc of the Covenant meme when he started to see how it panned out) and made the comment of...much better than fifty-fifty roll that drags the game out for an hour.
I think it's kind of funny that the Priest is the guy you want to be when this ending comes into play, the built in cross makes him pretty bad-ass against the deck.
