I've looked at FCM, but it seems way more complex and cutthroat than I want to tackle. But this looks to have similar ideas in perhaps a lighter, simpler, family-friendlier package.

Can anyone who's played both (or even if you've just played Papa) attest to the complexity, cutthroated-ness, and family friendliness of this in comparison?

Thanks!

Thanks for the reply! That's what I wanted to know. FCM's basic ideas are so appealing to me, but the cutthroat play and complexity turn me off. Even if I would ultimately enjoy it, I know that 99% of the people I game with would throw in the towel within twenty minutes!

It's good to hear that PP is more approachable and somewhere between gateway territory and medium territory. That's pretty much my wheelhouse. (And you're right, PP is a much prettier package!)
