This is a joy to play...I enjoy cut throat, tense games. This game delivers.

There must have been a moment at the beginning, where we could have said no. Somehow we missed it. Well, we'll know better next time.

A tad chaotic (yet still recommended) at 4, I think sweet spot will be 3 players for this one.

Like most Knizia games, it's pretty abstract, but the theme in this one seems stronger/more relevant, making the gameplay a bit more hot-blooded than much of Knizia's output.

Or maybe I'm subjective because I like fantasy-themed games.

Simple set-up and mechanics, with each of the 12 creature cards having a distinct special power that breaks the rules in fun (and combo-riffic) ways. Tense in that you only play one card a turn (normally) when you often want to either do much more, or play nothing at all.

Placing visible and secret bets also makes it interesting and upps the "hose your opponent" quotient. We haven't really done any suggested dealmaking in our plays (3 players), but with more players this makes it even more chaotic (a la Illuminati). Scales well for 2 to 6, and for casual/more-"gamer" gamers.

I have only played the Colossal Arena version, but have found it to be an excellent game. I like the secret bidding aspect. The end game rules seem like they were better in the original edition. It almost always ends on exhausting the deck if you have 4 or 5 players otherwise and ends too soon. Better to play with the original rules.

I've only played this with 2 players. I'm sure it's a lot more fun with 3-5 but I really don't have much interest in playing it anymore.

edit: I'd love to play it with 3+ players.

Respectable game. Actually a lot of fun, but I didn't feel like it needed a permanent place in my collection. I hope it's new home treats it better. Basically replaced by Winner's Circle because it works better with more people, and the theme is more approachable to non-gamers.

A lot of fun, but can be harmed by "jump on the leader."
