We are midway through Charterstone, a legacy game.   

I'm terrible at it, but it is a fun quick moving worker management board game.


I quite liked it. There are a lot of fun gameplay elements there, it's a decent worker-placement game with some serious choices, and the long-term strategic portions were actually fun instead of tacked-on.

Unfortunately, the "story," such as it is, is paper-thin at best and really more about what the players put into it. I also didn't care for the post-game, but I'll not spoil that until you get through.  :P
The medievals were only too right in taking nolo episcopari as the best reason a man could give to others for making him a bishop. Give me a king whose chief interest in life is stamps, railways, or race-horses; and who has the power to sack his Vizier (or whatever you care to call him) if he does not like the cut of his trousers.

Government is an abstract noun meaning the art and process of governing and it should be an offence to write it with a capital G or so as to refer to people.
