A would be excellent game when playing with only commons and uncommons, except for the constant risk of being helplessly mana screwed or mana flooded. We all can go on about the strategies of what makes a better player/deck, but at the end of the day the player who wins was screwed the least by the draw.
Bought this in college because I felt like I should have the classic game in my collection. I don't think I've ever played it yet. At the moment it's mixed with Scategories in order to play Word on the Street.
