Even if you think the lying and deception is not for you, I urge you to try this game. Hidden objectives have never been so fun, or so fraught with danger. I would class this as a game that transcends the whole world of board gaming, appealing as a Gateway game as much as to veterans. How many other games can you say that about?

Very appealing and worthy of such a great game
The insert isn't brilliant but the quality of components and perfect size of box definitely deserve this score
I would say that the game is pretty perfect mechanistically. The only possible problem is that due to the randomised nature of the role selection, the location of the evil characters in the group can have massive implications for how the game will pan out. Likewise, if the Lady of the Lake is given to an evil player from the start this can make things a little unbalanced. While no two games will ever be the same, sometimes it will feel that one team is up against it.
I refuse to believe that this game could be any more interactive
Thematic consistency: 5/5
The theme is present through-out; keen gamers can even add a story-telling aspect to the quests
There might be some who find the lying and deception unenjoyable or daunting; otherwise this is largely accessible to all
Overall rating: 9/10
