Magdar is a very nice fast-paced game. The central mechanism is around risk taking and answering questions like "shall I dare to stay and dig there, or shall I quickly go back to the entrance to secure what I've already found ?". It sounds like the kind of questions casual casino players may think of...

The game duration is short (about 15 minutes), so the game is often played several times.

The only drawback is the material: wooden pawns (the dwarves) are too small. The big cardboard pawns, showing the awful Magdar and the Cave entrance, are a bit useless and prevent player from seeing the whole board.

But Magdar is a real good game in a nice small box. One of the best short game of 2003, to my mind !
