We are loving this game so far. We have only played a few games, but Calamity Sam is the citizen of choice. Not only can she not be bribed guaranting 5 points to the player that nabs her, but her special ability can be incredibly damaging.
In our first game, I had 2 open claims requiring Sydney Smythe. My son removed him from the game preventing me from getting 12 open claim points. In the second game Sam removed Phineas Pillbottom which cost my wife a bunch of secret claim points.
