This one is Knizia's version of a "take that" game, and it's brillant. It's pure manipulations and situation reversals. In just 30 minutes!!

I like Poison a lot, and this is quite similar... except, instead of Cauldrons that have color in them, each player becomes a color. This game has some incredible strategic elements, and each player's playing style really affects the play of the game. After just a few plays it has become one I think we will drag out quite often. One-page-directions-games always are attractive ones for the game club.

To be a cardgame its at least a 9! Fun theme, and you try to hurt the leader, if you can, and that makes no-one to be good in this game. Everyone can win. A good Knizia game. Recomended!

I really, really enjoyed this, and it felt like a "reverse Poison" card game - or perhaps, instead of various cauldrons boiling in the center of the table, each player is their own cauldron. Quick, simply dynamics, and fun gameplay. The variable length road sections are the only real problem - it's virtually impossible to "randomly" draw them before the game for each round, since their physical size impacts how you pull them out of the bag, so you tend to get clumps of road about the same length.

Cute game, not as fluffy as you would expect. Has some interesting mechanics that makes it fresh enough to have a different feel.

A pleasent little card game with more thought needed than the rules suggest. Certainly it's not going to compete with heavy trick taking games, but it is geared towards families and that 30 minute game slot when you want something with more meat than Coloretto or King's Breakfast. The scoring system is a little funky and does not really match the pasted on theme well. It could have been simplified by using cards or numbered scoring chips. Try it if you like Knizia's Too Many Cooks or Poison.

Interesting filler. Remind me a bit of "Reiner Knizia's Poison".

One of my guilty pleasures. Sort of reminds me of Bucket King, which I also love to play.

The comparison to Poison seems obvious, but it feels different and there are some subtle tactics which remain to be explored... Very funny artwork. Recommended.

Quick game. Some (moderate) thinking and memorization is useful in order to win.

New players can be put off by a the fact that the winner of the last (3rd) round gets a big advantage (carpet swapping). However, more seasoned players can recognize the importance of teaming so as to make the trailing player win the last 3rd (since he is not such a big threat even if he wins the special 3rd turn). Thus, the "carpet swapping" rule is a two-edged sword: it makes luck more prominent in games between newbies, while it adds more flavor in games between more seasoned players.

I appreciate the direct confrontation between players.

A similar but richer game is Iliade (especially when played in teams).

Card game with reverse trick pulling. Not too bad when adding the board game component which allows for people who didn't play the best to still win overall.

Played with 3. Not bad. I think it would be MUCH better with more players.
*Update* Played w/ 6. It is pretty good with 6 players. Not a great game, but a neat little filler.

I like this game alot. I don't see a problem with the swapping of tiles at the end like most do, because that person may actually wind up with a longer tile than he originally had. The game plays quick and is easy to learn. A nice filler that everyone can enjoy.
