Re: Coup g54 kickstarter going for 18 shipped on amazon and other things for sale (US only)
Is this game good? Seems like people can't give it away, but the reviews seem positive enough.
I love coup, but one of the best parts was its simplicity once you understand the five cards. The nuance and depth came from changing up your play style and reading the other people. In G-54, they upped the diversity in cards, which leads to more energy needed to just remember what 5 cards are in play. For me, that makes it more difficult to play with casual gamers. If you have a group of more dedicated gamers, I think you could get some good mileage out of G-54, but for me, I can hardly get it to the table over coup.
