I playtested this at Bordercon 2016 (June) and I am now a happy Kickstarter backer.

It's colourful, challenging, has a bit of "take that", and is engaging throughout the duration of the game. There is little downtime and a nice sense of progression through early game development of your fairground, mid-game consolidation of the strategy that you are trying to line up, and late game "here we go" to see who can triumph with the best theme park.

For 4 first time players we took 2 hrs to play, so expect 1-1.5 hrs after a couple of play throughs. At no time did we ever feel that the game was dragging on.

There is plenty of humour throughout the game and great attention to detail in flavortext and subtle jokes. Expect some rule variants in the published game that will make it playable for as young as 9.

I see.

I was just wondering if you really played that many times to fill out your "Overall Ratings", but I guess those are more estimates based on your one 4p game.
