So I purchased Tannhauser and played my first game this past week. What a game!! It was exciting, and fun. Once my friend and I grasped the rules, which wasn't that difficult, we had a blast. Some very memorable moments include von Heizinger's utter failure with Sha Na Ra. My theory is that he started singing Sha Na Na Na. Sha Na Na Na, hey hey hey, goodbye instead! The best moment came when my friend and I thought that the game was over. I had his big hitter trapped and unable to do anything other than melee. Instead of keeping the game that way, I risked finishing him off quickly. Well the game turned dramatically at that point and pushed him to victory instead. Great game! My only complaint is that the revised edition rule book fell apart during that first game. The back bind came completly apart. Has anyone had experience with that?
Other than that, I can say I'm very pleased with the purchase of this game.
