Here the truceless armies yet / Trample, rolled in blood and sweat; / They kill and kill and never die; / And I think that each is I. // None will part us, none undo / The knot that makes one flesh of two, /
badge
Sick with hatred, sick with pain, / Strangling -- When shall we be slain? // When shall I be dead and rid / Of the wrong my father did? / How long, how long, till spade and hearse / Puts to sleep my mother's curse?

The expansion is a must to go with the base game. Plays well with the extra players.

Circus Train is a great game that is surprisingly brutal for what one might expect when they start a game with a Clown. The Advanced Game's rules are complicated a bit by the inclusion of the Basic rules (intended to make it easier), but ultimately it doesn't take much to get them to a fluid understanding. The game plays well enough as a solitaire game, but really shines with more players. That being said, the game does not play with more players unless the expansion kit is purchased. Despite the circus theme, the game really is a great, tight game that relies on strong strategic planning with a bit of luck that your opponents don't steal your shows or talent while hoping for a little bit of luck that the right show demand will pop up near your location. The production values of the game might not be the greatest, but it is fully functional and does not detract from the interesting game play and options. The game gives a lot of options and paths to victory, while at the same time gives plenty of opportunity to cripple an opponent's circus. It truly is a great game that needs to be picked up and reissued to clean it up a little bit, but also to include the expansion kit as one package. If you are going to purchase this game, make sure you also pick up the expansion kit to get the complete game.
