Just played this for the first time this weekend and personally had a horrible time learning it, even after I read the rules a couple times.

However, once I had to be the dealer and was able to walk slowly through the game without having the cards thrown at me, I suddenly understood what was happening. I called out all the card that were played and while I moved slowly I didn't stop at all.

Once I had a chance to do that twice the game really opened up for me and I actually gained a great understanding of the game. It is very fun, but was very confusing until I played the dealer...

Re:Learning Curve Problems and Solutions
I taught this to several people at my office a couple of years ago. For a few of them, I used (I think) the teaching method suggested in the rules -- introduce new cards one at a time, go very very slowly before picking up speed, etc. It takes about a half hour to teach the game to somebody this way.

Some other players tried to simply jump right in and play.

All the people who were trained slowly loved the game. The people who tried to jump right in all hated the game.

It makes a difference.
