I love Bruno Faidutti's games. I think that this one is his best and I wish that more people would give it a look.

It's like a bar fight with your creative thesbian club in high school.

Suprisingly excellent for the amount of decisions versus time of play. A Victorian Citadels, with strategic decisions, precision timing decisions, and the perfect amount of "fate" beyond your control, although a refined player will beign to understand his opponents choices.even good with 2, and fast like 30 minutes or so. Excellent game.
Finally a 10. Just so much going on, so strategic, so interactive, and so FUN!
Still so friggin good!

One of my favorite Euro's, it even breaks in to my top ten of all games. I like variable player powers and area control. The game seems to take many mechanics that have been done before and put them together in a way that I really like. Scoring could've been done a little cleaner with a score board.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

I finally got to try M:RP and loved it. I'm a sucker for steampunk art/themes, so I was biased going in. But the game play was great, I like the combination of role selection and area control. We had already gamed for three hours so were playing with probably less strategy than we could've - but it was one of those games that have me chomping at the bit to try again.

Some that I have played this with are unhappy with the level of chaos, considering the short game. But the chaos to me is entirely consistent with the theme of rockets going to Mars - what could be more unpredictable than space travel! Plus, if you know the game, you can mitigate the risk and adjust strategy accordingly - for example focusing on the inner regions that are safer and not vulnerable to soldiers and discovery cards.

Upgraded to 10, I'd play this anytime. Just the right amount of chaos and strategy, perfect theme/mechanism mix, fast enough to play with newbies but meaty enough to play with (most) gamers.

OOP.

This is probably my favorite game of all time. Just so many elements about it that make me want to play it repeatedly. Can't wait for the reprint. I'll be pre-ordering it.

Role selection plus area control with a cool theme. Doesn't get much better than that.

Great game. Area control combined with simultaneous role selection mechanic leads to more interactive play than most typical euros. Components are cool and durable and add to the 'theme' of the game. Rivals El Grande in gameplay at the top of the area control list.

Nice twist on a majority game, the theme is amazing, and the dynamic of the gameplay makes it a more aggressive and dynamic play than El Grande. Also, like lots of Bruno Faidutti games, it's kind of chaotic, which is a trait I like. The games are never boring...

Have yet to play, but as I love Citadels and San Marco and Adel V, I see no reason I will not like this game as well. Nifty art and fun bits.

This was my Game of the Year for 2006. Role-selection combined with area majority, and a good amount of chaos thrown in (which puts people off, I know.) I love the theme, I love the look, I love the game. I wrote more here.
