I was tired of Monopoly. Very tired. To win, you have to destroy everyone else. Makes for lousy relationships.
I had heard about this game. Read a little. Took a chance. Bought it as a family Christmas gift.
We love it.
The game play its relatively simple, while its dynamics are quite complex. It is well suited for family play, since no one gets eliminated.
We can now play a full game in about 45 minutes at dinner time.
If you are looking for a game to bring the family together: Check it out.
