The cards are pretty neat, but the game itself is so-so. Possibly a good rummy variant for teaching kids, but there are definitely better rummy games out there (the Mystery Rummy series comes to mind).
I played it, but I wasn't that impressed. We had a rule wrong, so I'll give it another chance, but I'm not convinced I'll like it much better. UPDATE: Gave it another chance. Didn't like it much better.
Severely lacking in strategy and meaningful decisions. I'd much rather play one of the "10 Days" games if I'm looking for something with similar mechanisms. And no, Sam Healey, it's absolutely nothing like Lost Cities, glorified or otherwise.
