Brought this game around to a variety of my gaming groups within the past couple months. Here is the general report for the experiences of the Death by Adventure, Santa Cruz Gamers, and the Game Nighters.
We found the game very easy to pick up and learn and very much liked the ability to name our lords, ladies and decedents. This probably got us the most laughs, well that and when these uniquely named persons were caught doing the most scandalous of things!
One of our players was a British transplant and even has an uncle in the house of Lords, as such she was very amused when one of the suitors had his name on it! We also to the opportunity to greatly mock her heritage and the aristocracy with the most ridiculous names we could come up with (although it would seem that some of them were real, so who is the joke on in that case?).
It was quite amusing to see stolid nerdy gamers gossiping in the corner about other people. Everyone was able to really get into the game and have a good time.
The games were generally close with everyone being within 3 points of the ending mark with the title to gossip queen being heavily fought over and usually deciding (or preventing someones gossip from working and thus claiming the title) if the game would go on or not at the end.
While it wont come out all the time, it was universally regarded as a good filler or end of night game.
