I just got the game when the cons I intended to demo it were over.
So I used the waiting time before our weekly game (we were still waiting if two of the 6 players were coming) and ran a normal game (to 30) with 5 people (me included).
While the first round was a bit disappointing (as NOBODY was able to beat even the "simple" 6-7 Power monsters) it picked up quite fast.
And just when you thought things were all clear an event like "Back from the Dead" turns everthing around.
Everybody had fun playing it and the 7th Sea game we had after that had LOTS of "references" to things that happened in the T&P game
I hope that it sells well enough so expansions (which give specific townfolk different bonusses or things like these) might come up.
I'll probably write a review after I played abother 1-2 rounds.
