(c) Without some help from spike/salamanca and the last token falling when it did i was probably in big trouble since zak fissured me on the last turn too!
Seems to be a funny perk by theory but it certainly has a lot going against it.
some of things i noticed that make it not worthwhile.
(a) Theres an event card that reveals ALL kingmakers in the game just by playing the event card? For some reason the blood vassal revealing event card will only target one player not everybody? Thats pretty messed up
(b) Gotta know the people in the game really to know who to play kingmaker in. Have noticed in games im playing some guys never play for prestige any game ever. etc
I had played against Carnage/Rasheth in a previous game, where I believe he had gone for the prestige win. My plan had been to weaken his closest opponents to try to assist him in a not-so-obvious manner.

That's the problem I think. Even when you know the people playing, you can never be sure that they won't just suddenly shift tactics between games.
One thing I wasn't sure on. If I have kingmaker can I still win by normal means too? I presumed yes, and managed to have a fair crack at it.
Always fun to try new tactics in my opinion. Sometimes they work, sometimes not.
I actual went for that only because all else failed. lol :) Did the game have a kingmaker? I guess I saw it was over and didn't pay enough attention to details.
