played in recent memory.” Hungry Gamer
“I've played Paupers’ Ladder with my 13 year old daughter. She really enjoyed the gameplay and wanted to play it a second time, so we sat down and played it again almost immediately.” Chubby Meeple
"The movement is exciting and often nerve-wracking, the game's combat system is simple and intuitive and, being the big lefty, liberal commie snowflake that I am, the game speaks to me." Boardgamegeek
