My only concern is that is arrived with an "Only at" (the symbol of another store) sticker on it. I bought it here on Amazon. We went to this other store for some other things, and I decided to browse the game aisle. The identical game was there, with the "Only at" sticker on it for about 50% less than what I paid here. I was a bit dismayed. It was an Amazon Prime purchase. I guess it's OK for them to play the middle man and make money, but being middle between me and another retail store seems a bit sleazy. Lesson learned for me: shop around a bit.
I didn't bother returning it because by the time I pay to mail it back I won't end up saving too much money and, frankly, I'm a bit lazy. I did think it is worth it to pass on the info, though. Maybe you could save $10 through some research. All I have to do it type a bit while sitting on the couch. I can manage that.
Great game. Get it and conquer the world. I hope that you can learn from my mistake: expect more, pay less.
The only drawback is what other reviewers commented on: the pink and red pieces are indiscernible in artificial light. I solved this issue by putting black dots with a permanent marker on the pink pieces, but it would have been better if Hasbro had chosen a different color. Quality is OK (at least at the Target price).
As far as playing the game goes: my husband and I have played it a few times, and we like it. It is easy to grasp and fun to play, but I am looking forward to playing it with a larger group, though you can play it with just two people.
The rules and pieces are of an earlier version. Six players can play in this version. The pieces provide the biggest issue which consist of some type of oblong pieces and a square pieces. In fact the pieces are unoriginal in a sense unlike later versions where you had Roman numerals. They are constructed of wood.
As for playing, if you don't like these rules then search for other rules or make your own up.
Not going to knock a star for it, but these really need a latch or even simple sliding piece of thin metal to hold the box closed. There's even holes on the "bookshelf end" of the box (which is the side it opens on - the right side, when looking at the top label) where it looks like a latch would go (there's a set of holes at the top and bottom corners). Yet nothing. Kinda waiting for the lid to come flying off if I pick it up from the wrong side...

I didn't realize the pieces were just wooden blocks, thought it would be infantry, horse, and artillery units like I had when I was a kid with the plastic pieces. Read morePublished 16 months ago by Nickolas J. Leskowak
