Excellent game! Unique, fast paced, creative. Really brings out the best (and worst) of the players. Not just a guys game--women like it too! Very interactive! Get this game! Play it once, and you'll be hooked. Check out the Flash Demo at http://www.revolutionboardgame.com/

I really enjoy this game! It's been a blast each time I've played. Great way to play against your opponents. No randomness...Awesome sauce!

Pros
- Blind bidding is really fun
- Getting inside your opponents head and outplaying them
- Making a gamble on a spot, hoping nobody goes there
- Moving someone's cubes off the board and laughing in their face
- Seeing your opponents all tie for a spot so nobody gets anything
- Finding the best strategy since it changes every time and with different players
- Direct interaction with swapping and replacing cubes
- Plays in about an hour
- Accessible to non-gamers

Cons
- You have to keep up with the score track as you go every time someone gets "support" so it's a little maintenance, but it's easy.

Bidding in simplistic perfection. The best of the strategic bidding mechanic.

One of my favorite games. I love playing games that require you to "play" the other players. The blind biding builds a perfect tension that leads to many shouts of fun frustration.

Brilliant game, bought for cheap from the works years ago, and get really addicted to it. Bidding is really tense and enjoy playing this a lot

Fun. Area control. Learn in minutes.
W/without expansion. Even with 3 players we sometimes use the expansion.

Doesn't take 4 hours - thank ANYTHING you want to thank for that.
A game, and not a commitment.
Never a problem getting to the table.

Fun and quick. Nice game with gamers or nongamers alike. Good family game as well, although a little bit of screwage.

A super fun game that plays well with either three or four players. One of my two favorite releases of 2009.

Here is another game that I absolutely love that others hate or at least dislike because it is a Steve Jackson game. There is a lot of bluffing and second guessing your opponents which sometimes causes wasted turns but, turns of control sway easily.

I rate this a solid 8, but with The Palace expansion, it's at least a 9, possibly more.

Playing with the expanded boards and with more players takes a fun game experience and transforms it into something sublime. Simply a great game made complete by the addition of an expansion.

Great. The tension in the game is superb, at first we thought that if if play right you get a run away leader. That's not the case, if you have a bad round you've just gotta be smart and not so greedy the next turn until you have the firepower you need. Really enjoy this game

Interesting game. Quick like a filler but has you trying to out guess your opponents. Spy and apothacary give you so many options that you are never really out of the game. Got shut out you can probably win 2 blackmail next turn then. I like it both three and four player. Probably a little more interesting with 4.
