We played our first couple of games of this last night. We haven't read the advanced game rules yet.

After a little confusion over movement around the corners we quickly picked up the simple rules. My opponent seemed not to be considering his moves very hard and so I thought my win was in the bag. I was concentrating hard to make sure I collected at least two of everything. As it turns out, Tony wasn't taking long over his turns because he has a much better memory than me. I was stuggling and kept asking questions like "I can't remember... am I collecting bats?". I lost with a score of 18 to Tony's 76.

In the second game I realised that you need more cards of less different ingredients and I fared much better. I thought my score of 80 was going to get me the win, but Tony scored 121!

What a great game though. I'm itching to play again. It has elements of Lost Cities in it (the "shall I start collecting this set too", "will I get enough to get a positive score etc"). It has a bit of mancala too in the movement around the playing area. And it feels a little like Pairs in the look of the board in play.
