The Meeple Street’s Review of Kill Merlin!:

"Everyone I have played the game with has really enjoyed it and was impressed by the new take on mechanics. The game combines a unique set of mechanics and player interaction to create a superb game play experience, that keeps players focused on the game at hand. Each turn has a feeling of suspense attached to it, because players really don’t know who will cast a spell that could hurt their strategy or what Merlin has up his sleeve. That tension is present throughout the game and keeps players easily engaged and wanting to play more. Each time I play it gets better and it will definitely be one that stays in my collection because it does not feel like another game I own." - Mackenzie H., The Meeple Street Blog
