As usual, cuddle time follows play time. Lets get chatty in the afterglow.

Like all Feld titles: Totally standard cube pusher with one really interesting mechanism that makes it worth it.

This game happened. I played it. I don't have any better grasp of it now than when it started.

Thanks, in part, to a friendly market, a cotton player came out on top despite the existence of a single port player.

Saw this being played. It's made by Andrew Parks - same guy that did Core Worlds (my favorite deck builder). Not sure if anyone that played it will see this, but if so, lets hear some thoughts about it.

You can certainly try.

I felt like there was almost a good game here.

Ultimately, the chaos makes all of your hard thinking less important than you want. I really feel like it could be tuned to be a fun game, but as it is, the constant deal tokens really dragged the game out and I felt like I didn't have enough control over my own destiny.

Strangely, I would compare this mostly to Winner's Circle. It has a similar feel, but WC doesn't pretend to be any deeper than a mildly chaotic race game.
