How is this game compared to Mr. Jack and its expansions? Easier than? Better gameplay than?
It sounds very interesting but that long (is it really 2-3 hours long frequently?) of a game may be too much to ask from a gaming group.
Outside of the fact that the two games share the same central character; they're two completely different games. However, for me it 'scratches the same itch'... but LfW does a better job of 'scratching that itch'.
