Liked it much better than its Europa cousin. Colors and countries are easier to distinquish. Still don't think I'd like it with four people though. We play with the "switcher-oo" variant: you may spend a turn switching the postion of two cards in your rack.

Very little chance for strategy, but the theme-ing is nice. More of a pleasant relaxation device than a game. Worth the time spent.

Down from 7 now that I've played Railroad Tycoon. AOS seems harsh and deterministic and without possibilities of a "comeback" play, while Railroad Tycoon is a fun, freewill excursion full of possibilities.

Update: played 2-player a enjoyed it quite a bit. Rate a 7 for two.

I like the trading. Always get burned by the damn randomizer. It's easy not to take a roll of the dice personally, but when a non-mechanical upturned cup starts dicating your fate, then you start to hold a grudge. :-) Fun despite.

Good game, but makes me impatient: oooh, can't wait for my turn . . . guess what I'm gonna do on my turn . . . oh, if it were only my turn I'd really do something, oh yeah. This is my problem; not really a downtime problem.

Fun to play the part of a mobster, but the negotations are a bit too powerful when it comes to deciding the winner (he's gonna win! Let's make a deal and he'll be certain to lose). But still, a good time if not taken seriously
