Awsome game!!! Imagine, a roll-and-move/area majority/dexterity game! I never knew dexterity games could be so good!

Cube flicking rules!!!! I like this game a bunch. There is quite a bit of strategy for a dexterity game (which zone to go for, which piece to flick, try to get zone or knock opponent out) and that's just a bonus. It's another fun game for the kids as well, which is another plus. Definitely will be in my top 100 next update. One thing, it is not as good for 2 IMO. Second game with 4 was a BLAST!

Finally got a play of this in!

A surprise hit!

I'd probably rate it a 7 and I don't know if it's because I'm not that fond of dexterity games that it doesn't rate higher or if it rates so hig even for a dexterity game because it's fun.

Maybe it helps that in it's essence it's an area majority game and I love those types of games. It's just that instead of a mechanism to move into an area (or fight for an area) instead of using dice or cards, it uses flicking.

It lasts the right amount of time with very little room for AP.

Original gameplay and even fun to play as well, with more than just 2 or 3 players. In our last game, my girlfriend was about 50 points behind halfway the scoring, but in the end she still got tied with me with more blocks on the board, therefor winning the game. Just because I had blocks all over the place, while she only focussed to get one block in on the small (but big scoring) building spots.

Fun, fast, light, silly dexterity game. Don't use the finger number rules until players become experienced. It's a lot more fun to actually score some points!

Very interesting mix of dexterity (flick cubes from a ship moving along the Nile with different fingers) and area majority. The one game that we played was a cliff hanger with one person's last turn deciding the outcome by one point. Probably plays best quickly due to the dexterity component, unfortunately people want to maximize their scoring and spend several tens of seconds deciding where to aim at. Definitely want to play this again. Plays best with 3-4, but could play very well with 5 if all players agree to play quickly.

We got this because we were going to Cairo, but it turned out to be a fun, dexterity driven, party game. Great for that gateway need.

Great fun - easpecially in a group that's had a few drinks. It does have strategy and tactics, despite being mainly a dexterity game. There are some subtleties in it, and that's refreshing for its genre. I like the scoring system, pyramid building, the changing use of different flicking digits (depending on a die roll) and the way that you can knock other players best efforts out of the scoring - rather like bowls or curling. I guess that it could work well as a party game for Euro-players or as a game to start or finish the evening with. In a two player game, we tend to play with at least one dummy player, taking it in turns to flick for them. It can be bought cheaply, and is well made with good art work. The rules are a little long, but that's rather misleading, since this is really not hard to learn.

A different game that involves flicking blocks and trying to gather the majority points in different building pits. Not a sit down game, there's a lot of moving and finding the best vantage point.

Frank Branham called this "CaraGrande" - since it's a mash-up of a flicking game AND an area control game. I'm not sure if it's a good game - but it's fun to play & that should count for something.

Clever ideas, great fun and a change from other more serious games. There still is a smidgen of strategy in choosing which buildings to go for, to build pyramids on them, and who to knock off. Best with 4 or 5.

I am not a fan of dexterity games, but i bought this one after reading Tom's review. I like this one, the scoring is interesting. Now my korean dream is to play more and become a better "flicker"...

I like this one a fair amount. Flicking and area control is an odd mix but I feel it works here. It has dice rolls and flicking so of course there is luck but you have to think of where you want to flick your cubes as you can pick cubes back up on the way down river. The more chances you get hopefully the better you will do.

It was what I had expected it to be and we had a lot of laughes and ooohs and aaahs during the game.

Interesting blend of manual dexterity/flicking (a la X-Bugs, PitchCar or something like that) with area control -- flicking your little building blocks into regions on the board to score points. Nice bits, simple gameplay. And kids can play it, too... Dunno why it has such a bad reputation, it's a nice little game.

One of the toughest and most tactical flicking games I can think of. Doing well depends a lot upon getting your cubes into the building sites, even if some pyramids never get built. Lucky die rolls to recover cubes for an extra turn can swing the game. But it's short and fun. Probably better with more players.
