I saw a session report which was the longest session ever we probably had some of the shortest. The first game ended inside the first round, while the second early in the second. Two games in maybe half an hour, can you believe it.

This was my first play and I thought the dynamics of the game were beautiful. There are enough counter cards to mix things up and a strategy for every situation. No one set of cards are ever dominant and can be easily expoited by tricky play. Even when your cards are crap you still aheva role to play. And the nature of this game is that battles are regular and unavoidable.

Still we found an unusal skewing of cards tonight and it was probably these that were repsonsible for our quick game ends. They did not however decide our winner, who played both cards exceptionally and came out with the win.

With six players free riding was a big problem, and so it was that the winner won because noone was prepared to do their part. Wharekumera deserves special credit for doing his part well sacrificing all his cards to keep a player form the win.

IN sumamry this was game i enjoyed profusely because of the interactive element. It is almost as if there are duals and honour battles in this one. You can call a player out, you can outwit a player, or fake your strength. This game has everything including too much luck. But for all that I loved it and will look forward to another play soon. Zirak this is one that has to go in your collection.

And the fact that I burned my entire hand BOTH times to try and stop the inevitable conclusion went past your notice?!
