This game dominated our last board game night. We were going to play a variety of games but when we tried Citadels we could not put it down. It has such a variety of aspects that pleased us all - from economic management to smashing stuff this game was a hands down winner at our table. Our next roleplaying session is in danger of getting bumped for another session of Citadels - ouch! One thing we enjoyed doing was playing with alternating character decks of the old characters and the new characters - this probably causes some grevious imbalance that has game experts pulling out their hairs, but hey - we had a great time doing it! We are also very pleased that the game seems to be drawing the interest of our better halves - any game they will play with us is worth it's weight in gold! OK I am gushing but this really is a good game - try it!
