It seems a bit more random than 10 Days in Africa (the only other one in the series I've played), but I've only had one play so far.

Great party game. I originally rated it an 8, but I've kind of overplayed it at the moment. A sure-fire crowd pleaser with non-gamer types.
UPDATE (Sept. '09): This has been pretty much entirely eclipsed by Say Anything! for me.

Random, chaotic, short on strategy, but tons of fun. It's been a big hit every time I've brought it out.
UPDATE: It's starting to wear a little thin, I have to admit. I'm bumping it down to a 7.

The new characters make it worth picking up. The new cards don't improve it much, in my opinion, and I prefer it with 7 rather than 8 players, so the extra renegade doesn't do much for me, either.

Cool for the extra tiles you get, but the extra rules aren't much to speak of. I don't have Hunters & Gatherers, so I can't say anything about the Scout expansion.

Most of the people I've played this with don't like the added conflict. I'm not sure that I do, either. If I want a game with lots of direct conflict, I don't tend to reach for Carcassonne.

It's a cool Catan variant, but I'm a bit burnt out on Catan in general. I'm hoping to bring it out as an alternative the next time I'm gaming with some Catan fanatics.

Hmmm... not so sure about this one. It's great that it can play up to ten. But if there's any real strategy to it, I'm not sure I see it. I'd rather play Coloretto if I want something with similar mechanics.
UPDATE (Jul. '08): Now that more people have been showing up for games at lunch, this one has been coming in handy.

I've played my fair share of Cribbage over the years, mostly with my cousin while we were growing up. For some reason, even though the game is so random, I could rarely manage to beat him. We still had a lot of fun, though. It's been superseded for me by a lot of other card games, but I still play it a fair bit on my Palm. It saves dealing with the finicky scoring. My Palm tends to beat me as well. I guess I just suck at this game. Oh, and '29' boards are the coolest way to play.

Neat little game. The illustrations are a hit with the lady-types. Fairly chaotic, so don't expect any deep strategy here. The psychological aspect keeps things interesting, with a bit of Texas Hold'em decision-making going on.
UPDATE (Sept. '08): The shine's kind of wearing off of this one. There's just not that much there. Dropping it to a 6. I'll keep it though, because my wife likes it so much!

Yes! One play of the Mother of All CCGs! It was fun in an overwhelming, brain-melty sort of way.

UPDATE (Feb. '09): Actually, a 6 is more accurate to how I feel about it.
