Has anyone out there tried playing this with 3+ players? If so, how well did it work? I played a trial game with my daughter today and fell in love with the game all over again, so I'm considering trying to find more cards to bring in set decks to my gaming group, but after re-reading the rules, the only mention of multiplayer I could find was in the intro where it says that the game is "designed for 2 or more players." Are there any special considerations to take into account when playing 3+?
Thanks!
Jonny

Back in the day we usually played attack right - defend left, with mostly unmodified rules. Have fun...

When my friends and i played in college (4 players on average) it battle royal! no teams (at least not officially) pick any target any time and deal with the "political" consequences it brought! : )
usually the games we slow with lots of buildup since no one wanted to leave a flank exposed when making an early attack. so just bear that in mind. : )

I preferred this with more than 2 players. (actually the only way we played it)
It didnt matter it was kind of unbalanced at times. In the end it was more about the people and the social dynamic than the decks. Beer does help ironing out the differences

I have never played this game before. I would be interested in putting 4 multiplayer decks together.

Suggestions?

Could somebody post multiplayer deck lists?

Which cards or factions work best for multiplayer?
