We finally got around to playing Virgin Queen last year with 4 friends and had a blast. We spent a lot time during the game comparing VQ with Here I Stand and I think that both are amazing and different enough that playing both is necessary. (Just so you know, we were not in a bunker when this video was shot but in the basement of our friend in St. Louis, Missouri)
Here is a link to a First Impressions post on our play that was posted last year: https://theplayersaid.com/2021/05/18/first-impressions-virgin-queen-wars-of-religion-1559-1598-from-gmt-games/
Also, Virgin Queen is currently on the P500 as a reprint (2nd Printing) and it currently has 536 Orders to Date and you can reserve your copy for just $62.00 (regularly $92.00) on the GMT Games website at the following link: https://www.gmtgames.com/p-740-virgin-queen-2nd-printing.aspx
One hour of gushing… and I loved every minute of it. 😎

Not much bad to say about this game….other than it is long and has everything plus the kitchen sink in it but both are part of the charm.
