Petersburg is great: It's fun, easy to play, and quick to learn. All around the game is entertaining, that is the first couple of times you play it. This game does not hold after a couple of rounds. I found it easily look over when compared to games like Catan, Dominion, or Agricola. Petersburg live score (and video online live stream.), schedule and results from all.

Note that the Pawn sacrifice at f5 is virtually a forced acceptance. If 17 ... b3, say (17 ... bxc3 18 bxc3 does not change anything) then 18 f6!! gxf6 (else 19 Qg5 forces mate) 19 Qh6! bxc2 20 exf6! Qxf6 21 Qxf6 and not only has Black lost his Queen but there is no defense to Ng5 and Qh6.
The only alternative to 17 ... exf5 that does not lead to a quick disaster is 17 ... f6, but then Black loses a Pawn by force. White continues with 18 exf6 and, no matter what way Black recaptures at f6, with 19 fxe6 and Black may not recapture:
* 18 ... Qxf6 19 fxe6 Bxe6? 20 Ng5 wins a piece.

* 18 ... Rxf6 19 fxe6 Bxe6 20 Ng5 Rxf1+ 21 Kf1 Rf8+ 22 Kg1 and Black loses the pawn at h7 as he must guard his Bishop.
* 18 ... Rxf6 19 fxe6 Rxe6 20 Ng5 Rxe1 21 Rxe1 and again both Black's h7-pawn and a more important piece are attacked.
* The prettiest variation is 18 ... gxf6 19 fxe6 Bxe6? which loses more subtly. The crux here is that White now plays 20 Qh6!, which creates an overload on the Black Queen in addition to the pin on the Bishop. As a result, Black's Bishop is no longer guarded and the forced win ensues: 20 ... Nd8 21 Ng5! Ra6 (If fxg5 21 Rxf8+ mates; if Re8, Black still loses a piece because the Black Queen is in *front* of the less valuable defender viz. 22 Bxh7+ Kh8 23 Bf5+ Kg8 24 Bxe6+ Nxe6 25 Rxe6 ) 22 Bxh7+ Kh8 23 Bf5+ Kg8 24 Bxe6+ Nxe6 25 Nxe6 Rxe6 26 Rxe6 Qxe6 27 Qg6+ Kh8 28 Rf4! and the mate at h4 can only be delayed for a few moves.

If (in the main game) instead of 18 ... fxg4, Black tries to keep the White Knight out, the game would probably develop on something of the following lines -
* 18 ... h6 19 gxf5 f6 (else f6! still shatters all) 20 e6! Bc8 21 Kh1 Qd6 22 Rg1 Kh8 (the threat was Qxh6) 23 Qg2 Rg8 24 Nh4 Ne7 25 Re3 bxc3 26 bxc3 Rb8 27 Qg4 Rb2 28 Rh3! Rxc2 29 Ng6+ Nxg6 30 Qxg6 Qf8 31 e7! Qxe7 32 Rxh6+! Or 29 ... Kh7 30 Nxe7 Qxe7 31 Qg6+ Kh8 32 Rxh6+!
* 18 ... f6 19 gxf5 fxe5 20 dxe5 Bxf5 21 Ng5 Bg6 22 Bxg6 fxg6 23 Qe3 bxc3 24 bxc3 Rab8 25 Rf4! Rxf4 (on Queen moves, 26 e6 wins; on other moves, 26 Rh4 and there is no good defense to Rh8+! KxR 27 Qh3+ etc.) 26 Qxf4 Qb7 27 Rf1! and there is no good defense to 28 Qh4 and 29 Qh7 mate. (If 27 ... Nd8 28 Qf8 mate!)
