Playtested v.1 and v.4/5 of the rules. What a blast. Great new mechanics that ooze theme show that Mr. Beech is brainstorming something fierce. Wonderful map too (by Mahaffey)!

Wow. I thought Here I Stand was everything I wanted in a game, but here's VQ with even more history, more interaction, more assymetry, more decisions. The only drawback is the damn thing requires a fork lift to move it about!

This is probably the best card-driven multi-player war game I've played. If you've played HiS, VQ expands on that game by allowing all powers to participate in most actions available while still maintaining a very strong asymmetry between powers. In addition, there is even more integration between the various powers so each power has more ability to affect the position of the other powers. There are also simply more options available and balancing resources is a huge part of the game. I almost hesitate to even call VQ a war game because combat becomes only one part of the experience. Players spend just as much time in piracy, arranging marriages, converting populations, intrigue, patronizing the arts and sciences, and exploring the new world as they do jostling for the limited board space. A brilliant game that I will be playing more of in the future. Excellent work Ed Beach!

2 4P games. Totally awesome. Fun, interesting, overwhelming choices, lots to discover. Probably a 10. Simply a great and classic game. Very highly recommended.

Rated a 9 after 4 4P. Thinking it may be a 10. I can't stop playing it. The best impulse buy for a game for me in my 40 years of gaming. If you have people who like heavy games this is the one. Our games take less than 4 hours for 4 players also. They go by very quickly.

And it goes to a 10 after four more games. So, after 8 games all I want to play is Virgin Queen. After 40 years of gaming, this monster is one of the most captivating games I have ever played. Completely destroys any of the old and big multi-player games (Diplomacy takes twice the time and give a lousy play experience in comparison - newer is sometimes much, much better).

My personal game of the year for 2012

coffee "Here I Stand didn't have enough chrome for me," said no one ever. Well, along comes Virgin Queen to bolt some tailfins and a hood ornament to that sucka. Be careful what you wish for, no one ever.

The design goals, as I understand 'em, were to better support 4-5 player play, take out the jarring breaks in play whenever the religious players debated the miracle of transubstantiation via dice, and generally open the game up so that everyone has a stake in what's happening in the New World, everyone (well, almost) cares about the religious struggle, everyone has some shiny baubles to chase so that they're not just sending a force to perforate their enemies with a quickness, &c., &c. And mission mostly accomplished.

HIS was a game where you had some useful stuff to do with yourself even if you weren't embroiled in a fight. In VQ, the presence of a war, even one you're fated to win, means precious time and resources taken away from the other work of your realm -- your attitude as to whether this represents a wargame that has truly lost its way or a more realistic approach to geopolitical simulation will go a long way towards determining whether you have any interest in VQ.

The best mutiplayer CDG. Every game is amazing and I look forward to the next once it's over. I have no clue how Ed can balance a game of this magnitude but he deserves so much praise.
Could be my top game.

Rating premised on this being an improved HIS with respect to game length. I'm hoping that the stream lined religious element will reduce game time so that I can entice more euro gamers to play.

A fantastic rich and well balanced game experience. Probably too long for the average gaming table, but for those who can find the time it is more than worth it.
