|This game is great. I love most all games and have quite a few to choose from, but when we get together to play, this is almost invariably the one we choose. I have the first expansion on order.

Those flying rhinos
|I am a gaming geek, and as such have played many board games, and I will say without hesitation that this game is the greatest of them all. Because of it's unique team mechanic this game combines the fun of a cooperative game with that of a competitive game. Those who are into strategy games will love the strategic aspect of duel of ages, but we have found even those who are not can easily enjoy this game. Who wouldn't enjoy a game in which Robin Hood can kill Napoleon by unleashing a Velociraptor, and Blackbeard can chase Davy Crocket on his mountain bike?
|No other game I have played generates a rich, entertaining narrative like this one. The character's abilities all fit so well with the archetypes they represent, that you can't help but become immersed in the story as you play with them (unlike many other similar games where characters are just a series of stats). The rules are streamlined enough that they get out of the way and let you enjoy the action and strategy. Tons and tons of replay value here!
