CDRodeffer 1 Very challenging to plan ahead, but I like a good challenge.

Aaron 0 I'm as yet undecided about this one. The simultaneous resolution is interesting, but look-ahead is still challenging for me.
Cerulean 0 To understand this game, it must be played in person.

Laurie_Menke 0 I enjoy this game and find my look-ahead is improving the more I play it.

molnar -1 Takes a couple plays to even see what's happening on a turn. I kinda get it, but it is too brief (and inscrutable) for any long-term planning, and in no way compelling.

unic -2 Way too opaque for my taste.
