Great family game
I purchased this game because I was looking for a game to play at a family gathering. We do not typically play games, as I am the only one in the family who generally has any interest in them. I felt like it would be worth a chance to try, though. Based on the description of the game, I was skeptical - it did not sound particularly interesting to me. I lean towards science fiction or fantasy themes, but no one else in my family does. This seemed to be a pretty universal theme, and given all the positive reviews, I decided to take a chance even though I thought it sounded kind of boring.
The game turned out to be a pretty big hit. To give some perspective, the people playing were 48 (myself), 59 (my brother) and 80 (my mother) years old. It took us some time to get the hang of the rules, but only because none of us had played the game before, not because they were particularly difficult. After playing through it the first time, we began to see where different strategies came in and started changing our play styles a bit. We all had fun playing it and it was a good way to spend time together. The next day my brother commented to me that he really enjoyed the game, too.
I'd recommend this game to pretty much anyone, and based on my experience it might be a good one if you're trying to entice non-gamers into the world of gaming. It's not very difficult to play, but there can definitely be strategy involved as well so don't think it's just a simple/basic game.Read full review
