I was reading a session report from a group in the UK that was highly
favorable of Rheinlander. They've played it a few times and really seem
to be enjoying it. I read somewhere else that it had certain
similarities to Acquire and Big Boss in particular (although I'm curious
if the writer was stretching things at that point).
I'd heard so-so reports on it, specifically from Greg S., but this new
info intrigued me so I went about searching for reviews and prices. Lo
and behold I came upon *another* review from "Alison from New York", who
gave it 4 out of 5 stars, thumbing her nose at those nay-sayers! ;-)
Alison, do you own a copy of this game? If so could you bring it along
to some future game session? I'd like to give it a whirl.
NOBODY expects the Spanish Inquisition! Our chief weapon is surprise...
surprise and fear... fear and surprise... Our two weapons are fear and
surprise...and ruthless efficiency.... Our *three* weapons are fear,
surprise, and ruthless efficiency... and an almost fanatical devotion to
the Pope.... Our *four*...no... *Amongst* our weapons... Amongst our
weaponry...are such elements as fear, surprise... I'll come in again.
