Not sure if serious - this feels like a sarcastic way of saying the game is bad because of too much downtime.
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.
TK (I'd still enjoy the game, even without the newborn GRANDSON. Did I mention my new grandson?)
