Hi, I´m a bit indecisive, is Fief better than CoH as fun- backstabbing game.

Thanks

They look very different.

CoH is just about 'survival.' You aren't trying to build up an empire and augment your powers in competing against other players in various ways. You just want to out-live them.

Reminds me of a joke.

Two guys are walking through the woods. They turn a corner and see a hungry looking bear advancing on them.

The first guy turns to run.

The second guy says, "No, don't run! There is no way you can outrun that bear!"

First guy says, "I don't have to outrun the bear. I just have to outrun YOU!"

With Fief, you will be the head of a noble family, trying to advance each members of your family in land and titles, coordinating the advantages of church and state, working for money (to get more titles) and finally competing to be the most powerful ruler in the land. There can be marriages, annulments (always a source of mirth), deaths... good harvest years, famines, plagues... building armies and succeeding with them, or seeing the dice betray you.

Lots of complexity and player interaction there. Plus 19 free stretch goals that will be sold later--in limited quantities-- for what the whole game costs now.

Or, you could just make sure you outrun your friend so the zombies don't get you!

I have not played Fief, but City of Horror is amazing. I'll own both in a few months.

I don't think you would be disappointed if you owned both games. It's okay to own multiple negotiation games.

I played both. I confirm that these games have very few in common. But both are good, in their own way.
