Picked this up a few days ago and absolutely love it!

In the game, you play as one of the hidden Lords of the City of Splendors, trying to further your agenda by recruiting adventurers to complete quests, owning structures that other Lords may rely upon to accomplish their goals while giving you a boost in the process and misdirecting or coercing the other Lords into doing your bidding.

The game is a worker placement game with a fairly quick play time (about 75 min is our average game). There is plenty of interaction between players in the various buildings and Intrigue cards, which can allow you to directly hinder others or boost yourself.

My only complaint with the game is the selection of Lords (really just secret end game scoring goals) is kind of... blah. There are alot of them, but they are all just a combination of "Gain X victory points for each [INSERT QUEST TYPE] completed / buildings owned."

To me, the gameplay is very similar to Agricola, but with more interaction with the players. It was definately a quicker game because the players (so far) have not suffered too much analysis paralysis because the options available to take are almost always useful in some fashion.

DEATHFORCE: There are certainly crazy things you can do with this game, you can generate a world that is 3 times the size of earth before it starts having errors, although I dont know how long it would take to generate a world that large anyways lol

TRASSIN: I'm guessing about 21 days? Assuming you take a break every 7th day or so.

This game is fun and interactive. I can't wait for the double expansion to come out, but I do find it weird that you can play one of the "seven" lords of Waterdeep, however you can't play seven players..

I know the expansion adds an extra player, but that still doesn't bring you to the full seven.
