So, I play Von Schill vs Marcus and lost. I had fun but could have played better. My buddy Chris has been playing for years and even worked the booth at Gencon. He cut me alot of slack and I still got my butt kicked. I liked my crew and just started to get a few tricks down. One work of caution do not play your first game with the puppet deck. It was hard to understand the pics and play quickly. So, I am hooked on playing. The game last maybe an hour. So quick to set up and tear down. You need to give it a try.
