So there are 2 of you that have to wait 5 or 10 minutes for something, maybe a game group to show up. What do you do?

The answer is simple you pull out your copy of Asterix and Obelix.

This game might not be the most complex or brain consuming, but it wasn't made for that purpose. This is a filler and a great filler at that.

The object of the game is simple beat up Romans and other things. You do this by playing a card from your hand of the same colour of that which is facing up. You get point counters at the end of a game for each certain group the players have the most victims, 1 for pirates, 1 for yellow, 1 for red etc etc. Which ever player has the most point counters at the end of the game wins.

Theres really nothing else to this game. Simple and fun for 2 players.

If your looking for a cimplex multiplayer game I would recommend looking somewhere else because this game is not one of those. But if your a fan of Asterix and Obelix or you want a quick easy filler then this is the game for you.

How so? If your attack fails all cards except the last revealed are discarded, so for each attack there will be only one card that you could theoretically memorise. I find it's much more Push Your Luck than Memory.

I found it to have alot of memory factor, but luck does play the biggest part your right.

There is certainly a memory element to the game.
There are only six Romans in each of the five 'suits' - so if you know that your opponent has three and two have been discarded then the liklihood of running into another is lower. All stuff to take into consideration when you want to 'push your luck' but at the end of the day if you are card counting in a fun, light, game like this then you are probably over competative and better off with something of more substance.

I find this a neat and enjoyable little game.
But then I like Asterix.
