  RPGnet : Review of Maharaja
The object of Maharaja is to gain the favor of the Maharaja by building 7 mighty palaces to his glory.
Move the Maharaja: At the start of the round, the Maharaja moves to the city currently indicated by the governor at the bottom of the governor track (recall that each governor is associated with one city, as clearly noted on the gameboard).
Overall, Maharaja reminds me a lot of Mexica, as they're both in games in which you're constantly scuttling from one region to another in order to build up and maintain control of those regions; Maharaja is a little deeper thanks to the additional levels of complexity allowed for by the character cards.

  Maharaja
The word maharaja may be construed to be simply "king" (as in Jammu and Kashmir), in spite of its literal translation as "great king".
The title of Maharaja was not as common before the British colonization of India, upon which many rajas were elevated to maharajas, regardless of the fact that scores of these new maharajas did not deserve that title on account of the small size of their kingdoms.
Two rajas who became maharajas in the twentieth century were the Maharaja of Cochin and the legendary Maharaja Jagatjit Singh of Kapurthala.

 Maharaja Ranjit Singh : Gateway to Sikhism
And, in spite of the import of some of the painters from the Pahari courts, the abundance of portraiture shows how almost everyone, including the Maharaja, was in search of an identity in their new exalted status, which they had acquired from modest origins in the villages of the Punjab plains.
One of the last such heroes of feudal India was Ranjit Singh, who became Maharaja of Punjab in his teens, and consolidated and Empire, stretching from the Sutlej on the south to Afghanistan in the north, Kashmir and Ladakh on the east to Sind on the west.
And, though the nobles of Maharaja Ranjit Singh’s court came from the misls lorded over by big landlords, the bulk of the army was recruited from among the peasantry of the Jat tribes and those many pariahs who had embraced the egalitarian faith.

 Maharaja review, by Tom Vasel
I’m not surprised that it lost the Spiel des Jahres, as that award is primarily focused on family games, and Maharaja is a true “gamer’s game.” That’s not to say that Maharaja is difficult to learn, but the strategies are deep; and the game is an excellent game with tremendous mechanics.
The Maharaja pawn and the pawn of each player’s color are placed on the starting position, and six character cards are placed next to the board.
Some moves seem scripted, such as the first player on the first turn should go to the city where the Maharaja is at and build the center palace, all but assuring him control of that city during the first round.

However, it was not easy to depict the life of the Maharaja, the battles he had fought against his enemies and the portrayal of Darbar-e-Khalsa in true perspective.
The scenes depicting the birth, childhood and marriage of the Maharaja, and treaties made by him to spread the Sikh rule to Afghanistan are shown in the eight dioramas.
The dioramas depict the simplicity of the darbar of the legendary Maharaja as compared to the Mughal darbars where kings and nawabs were inaccessible to the masses.

 Reinitiation and Narayan Maharaja - by Krishna-kirti das
Narayana Maharaja and his disciples will say that this "will" spoken of above is Srila Prabhupada's collective desire as stated in his books, teachings and conversations and not limited to a piece of paper required by secular authorities.
If Narayana Maharaja really considers himself obligated to follow Srila Prabhupada as a disciple, then he must also accept Srila Prabhupada's instruction that the GBC is the final authority with regard to ISKCON's affairs.
If Narayana Maharaja's reason for initiating people is due to lack of faith in their spiritual master, then Narayana Maharaja may then re-initiate Srila Prabhupada's disciples (who have no faith).
