Overall, it was an enjoyable, relaxing game. Quick and simple yet brain stimulating.
Reasonably easy to comprehend the game concept after 1 round (need more emphasis on the wild card and top 3 nobleman cards).
The mixed usage of cards and tokens for purchasing jewels and scoring points was fascinating.
Played 2 players only, would’ve been more challenging if more people were involved.
I rate it as 6 out of 10.

The storyline was basically irrelevant since I only thought about emu once -- when the objective of the game was being explained to me at the beginning of the game. Other than that, it was just a card game with different sets of rules.
That being said, it was a relaxing game with minimal focus required.
Albeit several suits and numbers that each card possessed, it was a rather easy game to pick up.
Although it did really test our rusty addition and subtraction abilities as we progress into several rounds.
Rate: 6 out of 10.

Very addictive. The rules are generally easy to digest but requires a few rounds to fully comprehend the pairing of cards. Rate 7 out of 10

The theme made me crave for mushrooms throughout the game. Love the involvement of cooking.
May appear complex at first sight but actually easy to comprehend, given that you have a good explainer.
Very addictive. Will definitely play again.
Rate 8 out of 10

The cards, wooden pillars, and cardboard floors were of good quality.
Theme is new and attractive. Building pagodas are building pagodas as it replicates the pagoda building in a pagoda-like structure. Pagodaaaaaa.

Although it was confusing at first, all in all it was fun with a bit of challenge. The game has some luck aspect to it. The game is also easy to set up.

The scores around the pagodas make it easy to track points. The power up points are a bit of a hassle to keep track. High replayability, although every game would pretty much seem the same.
I didn’t realize that the length was slightly longer than I expected, as I was soooo into the game. I rate this as 7 out of 10.
