Right up there with 7 Wonders as a game everyone "gets", with quick resolution and hard decisions. Great setting, too. Beautifully fine balance of risk/reward.

Android: Infiltration is short, fast and fun, and it hits my personal sweet spot of straightforward mechanics and strong theming. You get pretty much exactly the experience promised on the box: a mini-Shadowrun cyberpunk heist movie, where you and your fellow lowlifes are strictly allies of convenience and the best option is often to just run, run, run away as fast as you can.

It's one of those games that makes for fun stories afterward, and you can play multiple times in an evening, or use it as an entree to something else, which is a huge plus in my book.

This game is thematic, tense, and elegant all at once. If there was any negative, it is that it plays best with more than 4. Fortunately, I don't find that to be a negative.

Looking forward to this. I suspect it will be similar weight to Elder Sign which we like a whole bunch.

Really like it. SImilar in weight but great little mechanics, fun components, nice flavor to it. Just light enough. Just enough tactics. Lots of replayability.

This game doesn't have so much a learning curb as an enjoyment curb. I think negative reviews for this game are only based generally on one or two players. I think this game really amps up in enjoyability with more plays which sounds like a real downer, but many other games are the opposite and actually get less fun. This one really holds up with more plays and is a lot of fun.

UPDATE: I continue to play and enjoy this game. I think you need to give it a few chances before you nay say it. There's more fun, depth and interest here than you'll realize the first couple of plays. I like the theme, aesthetics and elegance of it too.

played this twice with 4 players at my local game group so far. Great cyberpunk themed game with surprisingly deep game play for a game that is light and quick to play. I think this game has good potential to be a light favorite at our game nights, characters special abilities and item cards can be put to cunning use as the semi-cooperative play turns into getting out quick with as much data as you can whilst setting off alarms and booby traps to foil the other players.

This game has three things going for it: razor-sharp theme, a simple but effective risk-vs-reward system, and the potential for awful hilarious wonderful villainy. Rad game.

My group loves this game. Everyone wants to borrow it over the week after we play. My wife and I play it every other week just out selves. We play a house rule of one agent each I Don't like the two player rule of controlling two independent agents.game still works and is lots of fun. Its fast its intense and it is a bread board game night opener.

I really enjoy this game. Very push your luck, and possibility for player interaction. The theme, while not super interwoven, is still pretty good. The intensity racks up very quickly and I like guessing what the other player may do and then choosing my role.

The only downside, unless we read the rules wrong, the first player will always take the data and that kind of doesn't fit with the mechanics or theme.

Game has a small learning curve because of all the item cards. But it's really fun. Easy to learn but with a lot of challenge when it comes to escaping. No two games ever play alike. Worth buying!

This game is a total blast to play as it has that great press your luck tension baked into a package that allows players to make ridiculous plays that can completely change the outcome of the games. You have to accept that you are at the mercy of fate (and the other players!) when playing but solid tactical play can pull your chestnuts out of the fire, assuming you have a bit of luck. Absolutely love this game.

Fun and thematic game. I enjoyed it, but it left me wondering about replayability, just because the paths to victory seem limited/scripted. You're either going for all the dice, and hope for an "Executive Elevator" exit. Or your going half way to ensure you can retreat. Then it comes down to luck of picking the higher scoring Data Files.

I don't know that it matters so much. I had fun on my first 2 plays with 6 players.

Very cool game. Rules are pretty simple, but still have strategy and tell a cool story. Having so many room cards makes for different games each time you play. It's a game where all of the parts fit. Plus it's in the Android universe which it pretty cool to boot!

This is a fun, light game. I usually play it as a two- or three-player game. The one time I played it as six-player, one of the players had very little available to him in terms of the amount of accessible data files -- the rooms had been picked clean by the other players. So, I'm not sure how well the game stands up with a larger number of players. That being said, for a smaller group, it's still fun.

I really like the game. The theme works well. The length of the game is right. The board is modular so is works out a bit different each time. I love the end waiting to see who will make it out of the building and have a chance at winning.

Having not played many "push your luck" style games before, I am happy with infiltration. I wish the room cards were oriented differently (small font on each means people across the table were constantly asking "what does that room do?") - but the game is simple, fast, and definitely fun. I only plan on playing this with 4 or more, though.

Other thoughts: I think everyone should use the advanced "Extraction" variant from the get-go. More player interaction = better play experience for this kind of game.

A push-your-luck with hidden charm that may or may not peek at you the first time you try it. With extended play, the beauty begins to emerge. Would play this over any other PYL game with the sole exception of Dungeonquest, and even then, it depends on the mood of the night and the people I'm playing with.

The best version, so far, of the classic 'dungeon run': run in to grab as many treasures as you can before the cave collapses.
Nice futuristic theme, good quality cards and tokens, easy rules, yet enough variation to make the game interesting through severals plays.

A fantastic press-your-luck style game with a very fun and different theme. A lot of people have called this to Incan Gold and they are right. However Infiltration adds a lot more to think about turn to turn and feels like a more complete game than Incan Gold (no matter how much people like to overemphasize the psychological aspects in Incan Gold).

This game is very thematic. I didn't expect it to be but it is. It is a press your luck game that works well 2-4. I like the 2 player rules that allow you to have 2 characters. My son used this device to have one of his characters take the fall so the other could escape, and be the only one to do so. Decisions, plenty. Go forward, go back. break locks knowing others might take the loot, when to push, when to leave, do you risk moving so far away from the exit? And what do you do if there's a runaway leader? How about sabotage the escape route and be the only player to leave. I've seen this done in games. I like the setting and the heist theme, it's there. Nice and lite game with interesting card/equipment combos.

This game definitely feels like it would benefit from an expansion or two, which I hope they get around to making some time. But even on its own, the quickness of it and the tension of raising that dial every turn makes for some very exciting and fun plays.

Why doesn't anyone like this game? It's soo good yet everyone I play it with either dislikes it or thinks it's "only ok." It's fun and goofy and is pretty much my favorite push your luck type game. Take any old push your luck type game and add powers and "take that" style cards and you get this little gem. It's great! common people!

Great fun game.
The theme is fabulous and the narrative is splendid.
Plenty of great time for those accepting games in which optimization doesn't play a central role and you might not be in full control of your fate. Randomness? Yeah, for sure, in many ways. But it's not a mindless games. You have to think, predict and calculate the risks just enough. But above all, who cares about randomness when the there's so much laughter and happy faces around the table?

Absolutely perfect base for countless expansions.

[Now I can clearly see the distinct feature of Vaccarino's game designing idea: a replayability. That seems to be his no. 1 priority. And that's absolutely fine with me. I _demand_ good replayability in games.]
