Ack! I had trouble with the colors being too similar and with the tiny countries. And this game with four people didn't seem to be any fun.

Played twice and nearing my fill. Too much figuring out how to play the game than actually playing the game. Also, the games feels like an annoying arcade game level where you just keep trying the same moves over and over again until you luck out or figure out the "trick."

Ack! Really don't like the move an opponent forward to get cards. Like the original much better.

Played three different versions and can't see what the big deal is. It's all right for twenty minutes, but the game keeps trucking on for much longer.

Not a fan. Much prefer the regular game.

More fun than I expected, but noting great. STill, much rather play this than watch baseball.

Based on one play. Never felt exciting to me. Progress felt too slow. Rather play Wallenstein.

Drab. There are so many more exciting games in the universe.

I'm beyond rationally judging this game. I played it so many times as a kid, when I thought it was great, that I now go numb even thinking about playing again. It spurs very anti-nostalgic feelings in me.

Surprised by how much I didn't like the game play of this one. I enjoy Fresco and the idea of mixing paints to make paintings, but here it's an annoying mental exercise of referencing paint charts and scanning a bunch of multi-colored splotches. Will give it another chance, just in case something clicks and I 'get' it.

I was very keen to play this but when I did I found it more annoying than fun. I want to try again though, just in case I was in a mood or something that day.

Like the idea of it. Don't mind the luck. But could do without the constant upkeep/bookeeping (mindless rolling for mines and prices), endless money shuffling, and long downtime.

Takes away what I like about Dominion (gradual deck build-up, deck management, and playing the probabilities through many shuffles), and gives me cards that play me more than I play them. Some fun to work through some of the combinations, but not enough for me.

Original edition. More fun to think about than to play.

One play. Had fun, but haven't felt compelled to play again. Rating might go up if I ever do and get more involved. Edit: moved rating down. I find I actively shy away from the game.

Great spidery bits, but it takes a lot of enthusiasm to make this one fun.

Disapointingly thin on theme (they have all the places, but do little with them). Stupid unbalancing rule that tries to justify itself by proclaiming that it's supposed to be unbalancing. Wanted more.
