Paul and I played this game, but our version was called "Brave Rats." After a quick introduction by Ralph, and then Paul and I charging ahead, we found Paul needed to read the instructions. After that, we had a very short game, which took all of T-W-O minutes (more like one minute, actually). It's a bit of a duel, and many of the cards played together (one card by each player simultaneously) don't make a lot of obvious sense, and the rule book has to be consulted every time this happens. Sorry, Ralph, but this was unimpressive in my opinion, but if you think we didn't give it a fair shake, I'll keep an open mind.

At least two games of this were played.

In the first game, Charles and I beat Paul and Jonathan by a couple of points.

Paul, Charles, Aram, and Adam played a second game. I don't know the outcome.

Diane, Sergio, Chris, and I played. It was Diane (not Diana) and Chris' (new guy) first play. Chris won, with Sergio coming in a close second. I trailed along most of the game, but ended the game and got the six bonus points. Diane thought the game was too luck-based; I'd be surprised if she plays it again.

Donald X was there. Among his games, he was testing a very different kind of game than I normally see. I don't want to steal his thunder, so if you want more information, ask him.
