Something about this just doesn't sit well with me. Some of the rules are a bit ambiguous, but can be figured out with some logical thinking. Still, I can't quite put my finger on what I don't like about it...

Disappointed in this game. Bought it because I have seen it on Geeklists as a favorite.

This game has a fundamental problem: It is almost 100% random. You can play cards, you can pick cards, you can move up and down but in all reality I think the "automated" player (if you choose to have one) has as much of a chance of winning as the real players. Fun the first couple times, then a dust collector.

Good filler game...and by filler I do mean filler. Takes about 7 minutes to play a round, even with 5 or so players.

Very little depth, but if you take it for what it is, Montgolfiere offers up some quickie fun.

I found this a disappointment. I was hoping for more from it. It looks so good, plays quickly and holds six, so there were grounds for optimism. However, part of the play is like a slower version of Nobody Here but us Chickens - the cards you play can cancel other player's cards or cause them to be adversely affected, and you have a set hand of cards that you have to use optimally to gain yourself points and stop others. There's a lot of bluffing and second guessing. It has to be said that this is not as fun as NHBUC! It lasts much longer and bogs down at times. Also, if you get behind it's very hard to get back as often several cards in your hand of 7 are unplayable (even grappling if you're more than 1 behind anyone).

Having said all of that, it's not all bad news - this does play better the more players you have, and it's nice to have a reasonably quick game that can hold 6 and looks good. My kids like it, too. In fact, this would have made a better kids' game than an adult one!

Light-hearted, fun game of ballonists competing for the upper reaches of the air. Altitude is determined at each play by comparing the cards folks play from their hands. each player has their own, identical deck, so folks need to keep careful mental track of the cards played. Similar in its mechanics to Raj.

Initially interesting, but ultimately tame balloon race game. The Sleeping Gas Sprayer is a nice touch, though.

Based only on 2-player game: OK, quick (very) game; fun, but not much to it. Seems like it would be much better with more people, so rating may go up, if I get a chance to play it with more.
