I think I saw a tweet about the guys from the Dice Tower playing this, but otherwise haven't really seen much of anything. Did anyone demo this at Gencon? Impressions? Anything?

Check the Periscope account for Dice Tower. They played a whole game online with one of the guys from FFG. In fact, here, have a link:

Looks like FFG demoed it at their booth as well, judging by photos I saw.

Team Covenant shared a photo on Facebook and said videos were coming soon, but nothing has appeared yet. I'm not sure if they meant videos of this game specifically, or just videos of GenCon in general (of which they have posted many already).
It's also possible they were waiting until after the con for a lot of their videos so they can review and edit the footage.

It's probably better to just put it on in the background and listen. There's not too much text that you can read from it anyway.

What you can observe is that since there aren't player-colour ships, there are several effects (including truce/negotiate/compromise) that can transfer the crown tokens between players.

"Taking hostages" seems to be equivalent to taking compensation, by pulling cards from a player's hand. But since each House has its own deck, the hostage is just a face down card. You can "torture" the hostage to return t to its owner for some reward instead, but I expect if you get a very useful card then you may want to hold on to it for a while so that its owner doesn't use it against you. But you want to be careful as there are many effects that will release a hostage or transfer ownership at least.

And very nice to see that Renly is on the Tyrell faction. I was a little worried he would end up on the same team with Stannis again.
