On 2 October 2008, Sam brought his copy of this game and played with Manuela, Keith and myself. Nobody had played the game before, but Sam had read the rules. It took us the whole evening, with Manuela winning by a large margin due to her settlements in the French coast and the most invasions. I made a calculation error in the final rounds and couldn’t make neither the invasion of Constantinople nor the settlement of another city in the south.
A far too long game for the mild excitement it gives.
