It looked a lot like they adapted the concepts and gamestyle of Jyhad to a boardgame format. Am I correct?

Regardless, it looks to be a lot of fun to me. Can't wait for 1st play!

Re: Just bought this today at Barnes & Noble. Is it like Jy
I would actually say in a way, yes... kinda.

It maintains a lot of the flavor and influence of jyhad/V:tes, incorporates a lot of the same mechanics in a much simpler form.

The world of white wolf is really respected. Using player without they think you do it. and yes there a link with the ccg Jyhad.
And like Jyhad you might want to play a good general "ambience" and with player who are not spiteful (because after all it's a dilomatie/ambiance game)
"-Jim : Yes, yes I will help you!! If you give me this card.
-Lucy: Sure...!!??
-Jim : I am one of the fith Primogen of this city and want to find a
a solution just like you!
-Lucy: Fine, here have it.
(few phases later... Lucy's turn)
-Lucy: So Sarah, you did to much influence on the industrial domain! We
we cannot afford that; Jim and I are going to teach you!
-Sarah : Jim?! don't you want my limo just here!!?
-Jim : Can I change the color?
-Sarah : Ofcourse, Ill give it to you just after the fight on my side
versus Lucy.
-Lucy :What! Jim!??
-Jim :Yes Sahara I agree.
-BLANK and after the fight where lucy fall in torpor
-Jim :Well done Shara.
-Sarah :Yes thanks you Jim and by the way I will keep the limo!

WELCOME IN THE DANSE MACABRE.

I'd say it's like Jyhad in that Jyhad/V:tes is based on the same source material that this game is. I'd guess it has about as much chance of playing like the CCG as it does the RPG. Still...sounds like fun.

The game is very like Jyhad in the theme or the aforementionned DANSE MACABRE... but this is a board game so obviously diffrent from any CCG. In a CCG, an important part of the game is the deck building, and many "bad" players are bad just because they do not master this aspect of the game. In the board game, no need to spend time before actual gaming, you just step in are try to do the best with the cards you are dealt.
