Price seems to jump a few cents with each purchase, so act fast I suppose. (Also it may not be $12.33 when you see this.)

It is a timed game for sure, but the timed bits are spread out so it isn't as much constant stress as most of them, but there is still some. I've played it in several different groups and so far it has always gone over great.

I am more skeptical of the spinner myself.

But that is great price for a well reviewed light game. It will make a good Christmas present a few months hence.

Yeah this is a fun game for that price if you have the shelf space for a Ticket to Ride sized box. Don't let the spinner scare you off. It's just a minor part of the game, used for determining how angry the peasants are for the round and therefore how risky it is to push your luck too far. Whatever the spinner says applies to everyone, so it won't disproportionately affect any of the players (as a spin-and-move game might). The same mechanism could have been handled with a deck of event cards for a more sophisticated feel, but this was just a simple and straightforward way to handle it.

Based on the way the spinner is designed, it seems like it is split into sixths distributed as: 2, 3, 3, 4, 4, 5. I think they could (should) have just made a special die to replace it as well.

Also to note about the spinner, it has great glide action. A true joy to spin.

On the contrary, it drops hourly when there are no purchases.
