After watching Rahdo's and Dice Tower's reviews on this game, I am highly considering getting it. Rahdo's Runthrough especially sold me on this game. One concern though that I've seen from other reviews that I've read is the replayability factor. For anyone who's played this game numerous times, I'm wondering what you think about this?

There are enough different paths to victory that guarantee endless ways to approach and explore this game.

I'm at six plays currently, and still going strong. The biggest challenge getting it to the table is the amount of rules - typical for any game of this complexity - but I'm still eager to pull it out.

I think there are "stronger" paths to victory and don't feel that there are lots of different ways to win, but I think if we had several skilled players watching and blocking others on the dominant strategies things would mix up more.

Don't be to concerned about replayability. The game needs a few plays to really understand what is going on, and trying different strategies. Yes I think there are, but its not easy to get it right. So many things to take into account.

I've played it 2 times now, and I'm still learning. Maybe its me :-)
But I see other people struggle also.
Nevertheless I like this game very much. Even though, it took us 2 times 3,5 hours, and I played it 2 times with different people. we were 3 players, so I'm scared that with 4, its going to last even longer.

And then there is the explanation of the rules which easily also takes an hour.

I'm already happy with my 2 plays. Wonder if I can get other victims with lots of time :-)
