When it's not your turn, there's not a lot to do. You can watch what's going on, and help out when asked, but...there's not a lot to do.

This is just perfect for passing around a newborn child, changing diapers, or just playing with the kid while waiting for one's turn.

I'm offering this info purely as a public service message. It has absolutely nothing to do with the fact my first grandson was born two weeks ago.

Not sure if serious - this feels like a sarcastic way of saying the game is bad because of too much downtime.

I didn't find any down time whatsoever as we were constantly discussing what to do, the relevance of the Dilemma, the source of the plot and images...

I'm absolutely serious. When my kids were babies, we found games like "Talisman" and "Civilization" were good because when it's not your turn, you can handle the kids, even leave the table, without really hurting game play.
Same with this game.

(I'd still enjoy the game, even without the newborn GRANDSON. Did I mention my new grandson?)
