To give you an idea of how grueling a session of The Virgin Queen truly is, Google's Go Computer was slated to sit down at the table with us, and upon processing the rule book, it promptly hanged itself.
The final destination for many a gamer, The Virgin Queen has an anticipated run-time of 420 minutes (if you're Bobby Fischer.) With an off-the charts complexity rating and a 4-point font rule book the size of The Oxford English Dictionary which includes the gamification of every military, political, and religious conflict within Europe that occurred between 1559 and 1598 -- the Chairmen knew they would have to assemble the greatest crack team of nerds since the Council of Elrond in order to even have a Frodo-level shot at standing up to Her Majesty.
But they had to settle for some dudes that had come on the podcast before.
Will the Chairmen and their intrepid fellowship conquer this behemoth, Chairfans? Or could this spell their doom?
