[Polaris] Underkoffler's Overview

Chad Underkoffler's first look at Polaris.

Yes, I'm very pleased. And he's right about all the problems, excluding that the game really breaks with two players.

I suspect that the game would change strongly with only two players, but I'm not sure it completely breaks. It just wouldn't be the Polaris experience.

(You would need an impartial judge to handle resolution, and a die roll -- while functional -- would be insanely random.)

The judging, oddly, doesn't bother me at all (you just have to take the other players' word on fairness).

It's the lack of ability to have the "one duty / other duty / knight" scenes that really breaks the game.

Uhmm... That may not mean anything to you until you've played.
