Simple, short reviews of games, played with 2 players. We won't tell you all the rules in detail. Most of them shouldn't be hard to find around here.

The cards which are changing order and might disappear, sounded like a fun mechanism. Unfortunately it didn’t work for us. In the game, there are 8 cards with goals for the final scoring. This means in a 2 player game, there are 50% of the goalcards in play, and with 4 players 100% of the cards are in play. While playing, it becomes pretty quick clear, what the goal is for your opponent. Why, just because he keeps one card in front of him, and doesn’t change that card with a card at the pool. That’s too bad. A solution could be, that you add the rule, that everybody has to trade the cards after playing, even if it doesn’t have the trade symbol on it. Also the goalcards aren’t balanced very well. With one goalcard you can get 12 VP’s easily, while with another card, you’ll get with the same effort and investments, barely 6 VP’s. Normally we would place such a game, back onto the shelf, which it would never leave again, but with this one it feels different. This game has pottentials. The settings are nice. The theme fits the game. The only problem with it, is the fact that it is unbalanced.
And that’s a pretty big problem.
