Might as well just have everyone put on a pirate hat and roll a die; high roller wins.

The game that wouldn't leave! Fine for fifteen minutes, but the game has the ability to possess people and make them play hand after hand after hand . . . Had my fill and then some the first time I played it. Much rather play Frank's Zoo.

Oh man you got to be kidding me. Usually the electronic device in these types of games makes the game interesting (in a retro 'hey wow' type of way), and that usually somewhat makes up for the obligatory brainless mechanics. But the brainless mechanics in this game are a god-send compared to the annoying electro-virus voices that they put in this turkey. Avoid, or bring asprin.

Blocked it out of my memory. With a name like Rat Splatter you'd think something about it would stick in my head.

Endless. Opposite of immersive for me, and I like RPGs.

A "Lava Lamp" of a game. You watch what happens for a few minutes and then shrug.

The central (only) mechanic is actually quite interesting, but feels like it should be a part of a more complicated game. As it is, it's too slight.
