We all enjoyed playing the matches but they can drag on and at the end boredom may set in, also it’s not very enjoyable in a 3 player match when one has to sit out.
In theory there should be an advantage to going 3rd and playing in the 2nd round, as you will have had a chance to buy an overseas player to strengthen your squad. Especially as the 1st game I have found usually ends in a draw due to 2 identical teams. However this game disproves it, but it may still be interesting to see in future games.
Injuries and suspensions are dealt with well, as are penalties (all coming from comparing symbols on the top-right of cards).
Also the extra skills that some players possess (e.g. sharp-shooter, attacking defender) bring in some more tactical elements, which are enjoyable.

Ratings:
Me 7
Jon 7
Chris 5 (sore loser )
