First time for this little card game. A pleasant little filler, but if we play again, we'll take out more thief and sandstorm cards than the rules say to do. They became quite annoying. This game is pretty much 500 rummy slightly changed up. Nice for what it is, I think. I'd even add a second monument to each game to give more options of what to go after.

We accidentally hit on an idea to spice up the game a little bit. Instead of placing all dice on 3 to start the game, we rolled them instead, to give it a little flavor. I thought it worked out well, adding more tension to which colors of dice we pursued.

A mostly outdoor adventure, at which we failed..."horribly". The Dunwich Horror devoured us. I was quite mad before I died. It was fun.

A family-friendly, simple, deck-building, race game that was competitive and fun. I'd play it again.

The meeple passengers are such a nice addition to the game, it might be fun to house rule them into the base game to give it some flavor.

2nd time playing this. It is clear now how the random map can negatively affect your game, also when the quest cards do not align AT ALL with your goals. I still like it.
