Fun when using the variant that any tile w/ 2 gray cubes gets wiped and reallocated. Otherwise, it's too easy for a tile to get locked down for way too long. Or worse, when two tiles are locked down that way! Oy!

Endgame is fascinating! For such a simple game, the timing and coordination one must muster when taking cups is advanced. You have to make sure when taking cups you don't generate enough wild cubes in the other player to win better/multiple cups that make you lose. Ingenius!

I liked Balloon Cup far more than my wife did (it's too cutthroat for her--at least the way I play it!), and I still think it's a pretty neat game. It's just a good combination of depth and short game time.

I LOVE this game! Love it! A perfect "take that!" card game for 2. The theme is fun, the components are good quality with great colors and artwork, and I've never played a game like it. Totally original, at least in my experience.

2-Player Game - Homemade version.

Made my own copy. Love this game. It's quick, it's tense, it has a lot of screwage factor and can be played many times in a row. Very entertaining.

One of my favourite games to play with my mum. Love the art/theme and the quality of the game. I like that the rules are fairly simple, and that the strategy lies in managing all four "races", figuring out which to pursue and which to concede, and trying to use the cards you have in the best possible way. A quick and strategic 2 player game that never gets old

Received in a math trade (8/8/14).

Highlights:
- Excellent 2p cafe game, very compact.
- My wife really enjoyed playing this game, it falls right into her sweet spot for games.
- Beautiful artwork, nice components.
- Easy to learn/teach.
- There is a lot of strategy because you are allowed to play on your opponents side of the tile/board which leads to some interesting choices when deciding where to play certain cards.

The theme of this game is...well, worse than pasted on. It's made up, nonsensical, and THEN pasted on. Be that as it may, the game itself is nothing short of brilliant. The mechanic is excellent, the play tense. It is possible to get hosed by the luck of the draw, but it evens out over the course of the game.

An outstanding addition to the Kosmos/Rio Grande 2-player line. I think it may be more luck based than it initially seems, but it's fun in any case.

Lots of strategy here. Do you help yourself, or hurt the other player. Do you go for control of the green cup, or the blue one? Do I give him that hop to get maybe a different color out? Very good stuff.
