Played this game last weekend and it’s quite fun. Each character feels unique and the game feels like it encourages role play. It seems quite complicated at first, but after a few rounds even the more casual players had a grasp of how to play. All in all I look forward to playing it again soon

Great game, broken box

The game itself is very fun, it’s a game that seems complicated but after a few rounds, starts to make sense. My issue is that the box was damaged in shipping, a large hole is in the back of the box. And one of the clock tower faces that signifies the rounds is completely busted. While not necessarily Critical Role’s fault, the wood they use to put it together is pretty cheap.

The game is AMAZING but feels like it isn't balanced very well, some characters have shortcomings the size of a mountain leaving them hard to play and the bazaar is almost useless maybe a card or 2 popping up for a character through all 12 rounds, and lastly I wish it had a co op mode (like 2v2) because in my homebrew testing this helps the game feel substantially more complete. But overall the game really is amazing. Fun to play and creative in it's thinking. A couple errata touch-ups and an expansion or 2 and this game will be one of the best out there ever. For now it just sits pretty high on the good purchases list!

Highly recommended

Just from the box and the components, you can see they put time and effort into this. The rules are clear and easy to follow and after a first play through, we were itching for another go.

Queen By Midnight till midnight

Sit down and plan to play at least twice. Every game comes out different and the choices of Princess offer a variety of different styles. One of the top board games I have played for years. Looking forward to the next opportunity to play.
So when's the expansion with more princesses coming out? We want more.
