First couple of times I felt this was waaaaaay too simple of a game. I still don't think it's great, but I can be convinced to play it occasionally.

Edit: I was right the first time.

This is really a 2-player game. Having more than that is just silly since one person ends up being the dominant decision maker for Axis and one for Allies.

It was a mistake playing this with family. They liked it and now I can't get them to play a good game.

Use pegs to track your opponent's shots and its easy to cheat.

Possible to get locked out after first move if other players conspire against you.

Pieces are not crafted exactly enough. This means larger constructions fall apart too easily towards the end of the game.

My only problem with this is it cannot be played without two chess clocks, which for some reason known only to god are still expensive.

Plays: 4
Played twice, once with a prescribed setup (Interactive) and once with a random setup. Get lots of points for unique drafting/deck building mechanic. The only thing stopping it from going higher is that I can see how some random setups will be completely non-interactive and boring. Would definitely play at least a few more times, though.

Plays: 1
I came away with a positive impression of Evo. The climate system was tense and strategic. It almost falls prey (pun intended) to Small World bash-the-leader syndrome, but has a couple of tricks to soften that. First, you can never attack someone who is down to only two dinosaurs. Second, the defender of an attack has a built-in advantage. Despite the less-fun theme, I would easily recommend this game to Small World fans.

I've played twice so far and nothing would stop me from playing more. I love the constant bartering between players, even if my negative standing in my group makes it more difficult for me to acquire the actions I want.

Amazing. I am an amateur game designer and have studied a lot of economics and my friend commented that this must be the one game I wish I'd designed. He's right.

This game has one huge problem: the end game. The game doesn't reward having the best factory, only having the most money, as if the world is ending and the factory explodes on the last turn.

The gameplay problem is that this makes the last turn extremely boring, as players are pretty heavily incentivized to do little or nothing at all and just sit on cash.

Bought it at GenCon 2005. One play so far. Dissapointed in limited interaction and almost no option cards in first game. However, love the base mechanic and rating may change with future plays.

I like it more now. Mostly I needed to approach it with a party game attitude so I wouldn't be frustrated by the seeming lack of control.

Edit: Lost favor with me, dropping score.

So much better than PR. Faster and more communication between players.

Wonderful game that requires a much different calculation mindset than normal games. Having to figure out what isn't there as opposed to what is makes this game novel and makes it a good pallet cleanser for other games.
