Expansion vs original

Recommended Posts

on 1 we rotate between witch and assassin

2 is always the thief

3 mostly the magician

4 intrigeur, cause it's boring if the king blocks his spot for the whole game 

5 the new priest (don't know his english name)

6 merchant

7 bob, the builder (don't know his real name either (original game)

8 soldier of fortune

9 usually the queen cause she is fun ;) but the artist is fun too



so we mostly play the old champs, but some of the new ones are fun too


at the end it's personal preference anyway

For new players we generally just play with the basic set.

When everyone has played at least a couple of games we usually randomise between individual cards in the two sets, giving a mixture of old and new. You can then vary it by showing everyone which cards are in and out, or playing the whole thing blind and not knowing from which set each card comes (we then say for assassin/thief they have to kill/rob a number not a character), until a round or two has passed anyway.

All best,

1: Assassin

2: Thief

3: Magician

4: King/Emperor

5: Bishop

6: Merchant

7: Architect

8: Warlord/Diplomat

9: Queen


The choice between Warlord/Diplomat often comes down to how fast we want the game to be played. Players who prefer to build sturdy cities usually want the Warlord, while people who like the "Every card has its worth"-approach, like the Diplomat.

On the King/Emperor-issue we've started to use the emperor more frequently. The King usually sees play when we are introducing new players.
