Innovation's a card game: it's quite a hidden gem --
Friends and family much the same, it's impressed all of them.
I've played it time and time again, for a small price to invest,
If you're looking for the greatest fun -- Innovation's the best!

Innovation, Innovation, there's none like Innovation,
It's a wondrous inspiration, in either incarnation,
through any publication, Innovation's the best!
You may treasure all the euros, you may crave a high-stakes dice-fest,
But I tell you once and once again, Innovation's the best!

Innovation's great for two, but more can be an issue;
For when any rival makes his move, chaos can ensue!
The actions you can take keep changing, and nothing stays the same,
But watch the symbols or suffer demands your rivals may proclaim!
You'll need to draw more cards, replace others, and exchange,
For even when you think you're winning, everything can change!

Innovation, Innovation, there's none like Innovation,
It's tactics, it's luck, it defies all attempts at indexation.
It's a wondrous inspiration, in either incarnation.
Try it with a partner and you'll be really quite impressed,
Because I tell you once and once again, Innovation's the best!

Its wonderfully approachable. (There's only a few rules to learn.)
And one good game can lure you in to the point of no return.
And when you're trying to bluff your way, or you rule with mighty crowns--
Or you've got the greatest score, or you need a few more rounds--
Or you're an age or two behind, or you have demands your opponent can't protest--
Ah, that's the beauty of the game! Innovation's the best!

So when you're with a bud tonight and want a mental fight,
Or you need a game to delight that's small and travels light,
When you pull from your chest, this tiny game before your guest--
Then one and all will attest: Innovation's the best!
And when the game is over, and one of you has won,
"Let's start the game again," you'll say, but its already begun.

Innovation, Innovation, there's none like Innovation,
it's a stimulating temptation, a vexing frustration --
It's a mental taxation that leaves you with a wild elation!
For two engaging players, it's a perfect little contest,
So I tell you once and once again, Innovation's the best!

I'm actually not a huge fan of the game, but I've got to give you props.

Great job!

I am a huge fan of the game and I wasn't planning on it, but now I'm thinking of taking it to my family's for dinner tonight

Your review I must injest,
but it left me quite impressed!
Although I must confess,
your crafting of the words expressed,
has left me with a taste for conquest!


Cheers~

Good review. I'd recommend putting a rhyme in your title so people know what to expect...

Great job - I was expecting a standard review, not this fun homage to TS Eliot (as well as to a great game).

But why can I not read it without hearing it to the tune of a certain Mr Lloyd Webber? shake
