Being a Geek is a sure sign of a sound mind, cause it means you think that life as it is is dull and should be more interesting. Which it is.

To sum it up: WOW! (edit after a three players game)

Maybe the sweetest surprise this year: a game that is so... skeletal that you'd think there wouldn't be much to do/think/have fun with. But our first three player session left us litterally BEGGING for more.

Elegance in game mechanisms has reached new standards with Barony!

Edit (after my first two player game): WOW WOW and WOW! Two player is tense, full of choices, to sumit up the game scales perfectly with two.
One more reason for it to see a LOT of table !

We demoed it at Gen Con (wasn't even a game on our radar) and really enjoyed it. We'll be featuring a play through of it for one of our shows in September.

Agreed! Picked up the game on a hunch and because the components looked great - elegant, simple, but full of classic thrill.
