"...playing “VTBG,” as it’s known among hardcore VTBG players, doesn’t just involve rolling some dice and advancing your cardinal three spaces. Do cardinals advance three spaces toward the Papacy by rolling some dice in real life? Most of them don’t. They do things like Take Stances on Important Religious Issues… and other pre-Pope activities. Just as in reality, the game forces players to express their views on critical issues form a historical aspect. Tell me, what other board game offers such historical action!? None! You can thank [Stephen Haliczer] for the greatest board game in the world!"

"I think it would have been fun to play it with people who like a discussion. Could use it as a teaching tool for the kids in St. Mary's...we had fun. It was filled with laughter. We will be doing it again soon."
