All things Mr. Jack get loads of play by me, I'm a huge fan. This is going to be great, I for one am excited.

I have Mr.Jack, MJ in New York which is currently my no.1 game in terms of number plays, and the extension is on order. I am always looking for the carriage as well and then this pops up..... Usher said it best "OMG." wait, no actually he said it, but not really best. kind of just in a monotone kind of way. Still he said it. and i for one agree with Usher about this one.

I'm with you on this one. A portable Mr. Jack would rule! I own & love Mr. Jack (and more importantly, so does my wife). And we've just started playing Mr. Jack in New York (sorry Secret Santa 2009, we were a little slow getting to this one blush ), but it's quickly become a favourite as well. James, I love your video reviews and your MrJ:NY review got us up to speed on the new roles very quickly. Much appreciated.

Can't wait to pull Mr. Jack out of my pocket... whistle

Glad you liked them, I've got a bit of fun planned for the "Extension" review, When it finally arrives that is. I really want to see how this pocket version plays. I'm Really excited about this one.

Regards,
James.

I don't play to win - I play for enjoyment and social interaction.

Such a pity we live in the Antipodes. Games take forever to be distributed here.

Mr Jack is one of my fave 2-player games. Pity my wife doesn't enjoy it. But my father does. I just don't get enough chances to play with him.

My Mrs isn't a fan of it either, My best mate is who i play Mr. Jack with most, and i feel much the same way, I just don't get enough chances to play with him either.

There is only 24 hrs in a day after all

It is a rare occasion we meet up and play only one game of Mr.jack, We usually at the very least play 2 games so we can have a go at each side. It really is a fantastic game i recently looked up a few of the characters from the NY edition,

Our favorite character is Cloud rider and Mr. Monk Eastman http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Monk_Eastman

P.S: I'm a big fan of Black books and the I.T crowd, I haven't seen Father Ted yet
waiting for a mate to lend it to me. It looks like your a fan.

I like the whole pocket games genre Zombie In My Pocket, etc...

I guess I can see why they didn't call this one "Mr. Jack In My Pocket" though.
