Dots Version: Fast and easy party game, good filler. All players flip open a card, then count features on ALL cards (I guess some people got this rule wrong!). Very simple, very light. If you like fast games with pattern recognition like flix mix or jungle speed, you might want to give it a try (eben though this one is even lighter than these games, its just about counting patterns).

Very light. Count the number of coloured spheres on the face up cards - one or two shown for by player - and be one of the first to correctly match the number of spheres from the cards in your hand (numbered 1,2,4,8 and 16). Well received as a family game. Better played with more than 3. With three a slow but careful count can be a winning tactic. Same feel as Jungle Jam and perhaps Ligretto. Rated as a quick family filler. We also adjusted the scoring with six players so that first correct score got 6, second 5, etc. This way the slower players (the senior generation) at least got some points.

Another speedy math game that might be halfway decent for kids learning addition, but not for much else. There are just too many better math games for kids out there. My daughter enjoyed our one play of this, though. Would probably use for 6-8 y.o. kids for math practice, but not so much as a game.

Quick and easy. Nothing to write home about, but simultaneous, fast game play and easy rules make it a fine niche game, especially as a small gift for youngsters. As a card game, it is also easy to take along travels and one only needs space to put down 4-8 cards so that everyone can see (but not necessarily reach) them.

Not bad, but not very interesting or exciting. I like the speed and observational component of the game, but with so many better (i.e. more lively) choices out there, I can't see this one getting much play.

[Dots] I recommend this for your mathy 6-9 year olds and those that like pattern recognition games. A simple game that's simply not that fun: count the circles and then play the number cards equal to sum before anybody else does.

This game is abysmal. A card is flipped up, and the first player to count the number of relevant features and express the answer IN BASE TWO wins!

Components: The sci-fi theme is unnecessary and poorly realized; despite the colorfulness of the cards, they could have been so much prettier. Their durability is acceptable.

Experience: The two elements of shape recognition and base-2 counting combine to form this simple yet mildly-appealing game.

So this is all it takes to get a game published?

UPDATE: I had written that before I played the game. During the game someone said, "Wow, someone got paid for this." Count dots, throw down the cards that match the number of dots. The math is harder than the counting, but "hard" doesn't mean compelling. The plus is that it is fast.

Overall, it isn't a horrible game, but there are just so many better games in this speed/party genre.

What amazes me is that this game has been released twice, by two different companies. Wow.

UPDATE: The more I think about it, the more I think this game sucks. Anyone want a piece of this.

Game in in excellent conditions. All cards are accounted for, but is missing the sheet with directions (can be downloaded from BGG for free!). Box is in great condition with the exception of a small slit cut on the face that measures about a quarter of an inch long, and a Goodwill price sticker on one of the sides.
