Romeo and Juliet in the Council of Verona is a small game from Crash Games that uses the characters in Shakesperare’s wonderful play. During the game, players have to decide where to locate the given characters, in the Council or in Exile. Some characters have agendas. During play, you’ll place some chits on the character to gain points if their agenda is met at the end of the game. Funnily enough, one of the chits is just for bluffing… nice addition! These are not all the rules and it’s indeed not an exhaustive description of the rules. For that you have to listen to the episode (which of course you were going to do anyway, weren’t you?).
It is a short game and it’s meant to play quickly. Basically it’s a filler game. That makes me both interested and concerned at the same time because filler games tend to be a bit too light for me. With the extremely notable exception of Love Letter, I don’t tend to take many more games with me when I go out.
So we had to try this. And we did.
I think you’ll like what we had to say about this game.
