For those who have play tested or are in the know...

Is ND as fiddly as Louis XIV? It looks beautiful, but Louis did not go over well in our house becasue of all the tile flipping and ways to detrmine who had the majority on each portait, etc...

No, it is by no means as "fiddly" as Louis XIV (not that I find Louis to be fiddly in the first place). There is no flipping of tiles going on, there are no majorities at all: cubes always stay on the buildings of each player (except for one tile). The flow of the game is actually very smooth. My only complaint in this department would be the tiny and somewhat unintuitive iconography on the board and some of the cards.

But Stefan Brück usually uses the Essen show to spot those issues and to get them sorted out (as he did with Louis XIV; those who have seen the prototype will have noticed).
