Reviewer: EndersGame from BGG reviewer  
Musketeers has had a major component upgrade with the benefit of this new edition.

Players simultaneously choose a Musketeer card from their hand, working together with other players to defeat the revealed Guard card. If the combined total is enough, the player who contributed the highest card gets a reward, otherwise the player who contributed the lowest card suffers a penalty.

Even though it's not a Knizia design, this clever use of numbers reminds us of Knizia's best in its simplicity and genius.  The game's  high point is the fascinating mechanic where you're working together but at the same time against each other, a semi-cooperative element that's highly thematic for musketeers.  It has real potential for those who enjoy bluffing and simultaneous selection.  Luck of the draw does play a role, but the game is super quick.  Best enjoyed with at least three, while light and fun this has enough substance to make it something worth coming back to for another quick fix.
