So, we played a round of Aye, Dark Overlord! this weekend, and I thought I'd give a brief summary and ask for your opinions here.
I really liked the game in itself, but a couple of things threw me off, and I wanted to ask if they're normal, the result of a really bad Overlord or a misunderstanding of rules:
- Several players just barely made up a story. They continued for a couple of sentences but instead of accusing, they usually laid the blame on others. I found this quite frustrating as the story-telling part took a back seat behind "yes, I did that, but HE did something far worse!" *plays lay blame and gives turn to another player*
- Interruptions and arguments from players whose turn it wasn't. There were times when I couldn't even hear a player's story and excuses, because others were shouting into the round and interjecting at every second.
- The way we played it, you would eventually run out of action cards because whenever the Overlord asks you directly, you don't draw an action card.
- The game took awefully long to play - I am fairly certain that this was the Overlord's faults.
Your thoughts? Other experiences?
