This game intimidates me. And, that's not just the nuns. I have opened the box and read the rules, and it looks like much of the gameplay seems to be trying to figure out whether or not Location A can see Location B. That doesn't seem very fun to me, especially if you have to use a ruler to see if the line of sight is clear or not.

Do you spend much time while playing trying to figure sightlines out like this, or is the game in any way actually fun and easy to play?

LOS is a very easy concept disturbed by the dark board and some hard to see exceptions and doors. However after 2 or 3 plays they can be easily assimilated.

To sum up, we have always a big time playing this.


PS:Also, the rule is stupid, and my group does not use it at all.

Hi Alan,

Thank you for your perspective. By the way, which rule does your group ignore?

I don't think we've ever used the ruler. We have looked at the chart on the back a few times though. There are so many doors, that LOS usually isn't a problem, and as long as you're more than six spaces away, you never have LOS anyway, so that makes it very easy. You spend a lot more time counting out spaces in your head for worst case scenarios :) ("okay, if i move here, and the nun moves 4, can she hear me if i roll a 6" and stuff like that)

I think he meant to say that the "ruler" is stupid, Michael..

We do not use that at all either..
