Haven't played yet. Seems rather difficult to manipulate the ships without knocking the sails off. Some of the sail pieces don't fit very well and refuse to stay in the hull. Don't know if this a problem common to all copies.

What *is* common is the tendency of previous owners of the American Heritage games to either lose or keep the high quality Historical Booklet when they resell their copies.

Quote from that M*A*S*H episode.

(Hawkeye jumps two of Trapper's moonshine-filled shotglasses, gulps them down, then wobbles drunkenly on his stool.)

Hawkeye: Who's winning?
Trapper: I don't know. The board keeps moving around.

Nice simple checkers variant. Quick and fun game.
Had this as a kid. I remember I particularly liked the silly looking plastic 'ogre' pieces for some reason. It would seem that it wasn't as successful as it's companion game Smess. Chercles almost never shows up on eBay, and for months, I couldn't find anyone else on the Internet with a copy.
Smess, on the other hand, is almost always on eBay, and has a PC version for the Zillions of Games program.

Bought this on the enthusiastic recommendation of a friend, This is one of his favorite games for the different mapboard each game, and the Good/Evil character changing.
I've only tried this once so far as a two-player game against said friend. It bogged down toward the later game as characters kept flip-flopping between Good and Evil, and this was dragging things out.
I'll have to try it again w. 3 or more. Hope my experience with this game will improve, as I had high hopes for it.

Would like to try the competitive version with a higher VP goal like 10 or 12 Terror Points instead of 8. Game is sometimes too short.

Only played co-op ver once, much better than the competitive game. Very tense game session. Need to try it again soon.

A rather light SF wargame featuring Day-Glo Gummi-Bear Aliens. Only played it once so far (So many games, so little time!). The Monolith has an annoying habit of cutting off the view of parts of the board. I just leave the walls out and lay the roof section in the center.

A very good 'dungeon-crawl' game. And thankfully it isn't roll-and-move like Talisman. One of the worst-written rule books I've ever encountered.
I'd expect that kind of chatty, game-characters-teaching-players style from a kid's game, not something of this level.

Certainly not as good as the original Settlers and it's 2 expansions.
And it definitely has it's play balance problems.
Still, since this was not only an SF game but an SF Trading game, it was a must buy for me when it was released.

Very good 2-player adaptation to Starfarers. Indeed, it's even better then the game it's based on.

Several good features in the City. Gives neutral characters a place to go. Just don't run out of money while in the City or you could get stuck in there for quite a while.

Like many other reviewers here, reminded me of Metro. But much, simpler, lighter, shorter, and more fun to play. Some confusion involved with the Dragon tile rules. Also, the board's grid lines are way too faint, making it a bit difficult to place the tiles early in the game. I guess they didn't want to mess up the board's artwork.
