I'm looking for a good strategy for the King. Can't win being him.
Win easily with the Assassins, though.

I don't keep stats on the games I've had, but I felt it to be 50/50 to both sides, quite balanced.

One strategy for the King is to clear the rooftops, as the assassins move fast from up high.

yep, that is probably a good idea.

Also, we tried to rush things as the king, but taking it slower and arresting random people is also probably a good thing, I think.
What do you say?

Yes, moving slow is sensible - I find that if you move the king too fast, the "ring of protection" provided by the guards breaks up too easily, leaving gaps for would be assassins to run through....

Hello,

During the first games, you think it's harder to play the king. But when you know the game, you realise that it's easier to play the king.
Now, I win most frequently with the king. ;)
