The entire family has had fun with this game.
We owned it when it was new (and the children were school-aged) and bought it again to play with them and their wives.
It is a good 'gateway' game to introduce non-gamers to the world of quality boardgames.

Although the rules are well written, this game is a bit difficult to understand at first.
The reward for your effort is great, though.
One of the few games that becomes more challenging and more strategic as you gain experience playing.

Simple card game that plays well with two; but I suspect would be better with more players.
The premise is fun and the gameplay is not overly complex. I especially like the idea that the cards are multi-purpose {each card can be part of a voyage or a good for sale or a doubloon[victory point]} (like Race for the Galaxy).

This is a staple (pun intended) in our house.
Bohnanza is a family favorite.
The Fan-Edition disappointed me only in that the cards DO NOT have the quantity of each printed on them. Of course, this edition is intended for more 'seasoned' players (another pun). So we already know most of the values.

This game has an amazingly deep strategic element to it. I have not yet completely understood all the strategy. However, the mechanic is simple enough for younger players (and those less atuned to sophisticated board games) to enjoy The Thrill Of The Race.
This is also one of the few multiplayer games that plays extremely well with two.
We purchased this game on May 2 to play during the Kentucky Derby. And it turned out to be an historic Kentucky Derby with the longshot horse taking the Win!!

This is NOT a copy of Ticket To Ride.
I was attracted to the concept that THERE IS NO LUCK in this game. It is richly constructed with beautiful parts.
The game play is straightforward.
Although the rules seem to be simple and direct (ignoring a few typos) we needed to reference them frequently during the first few games.
Not as much fun with Two players. Quite competitive with more.
I *really* like the aspect of NO LUCK. You control your destiny and must be strategic against your opponents.

This is an awesome game. Although it is listed as a Board Game, it's really a card game. As a huge fan of MtG (until the late 90's when the rules got 'dumbed down'), Dominion has all the most attractive elements of Magic.
The concept of Deck Building and Deck Tuning are an integral part of the game.
From the very beginning (with only 10 cards) you are simultaneously building and playing your deck. As with so many of my favorite games, the resources available to 'purchase' improvements always feel like not-quite-enough.
The game is well balanced and plays EXTREMELY well with any number of players.
You have numerous alternatives for initial setup and for strategies to play during the game. Although if you try to switch your strategy too late in the game you will fall far behind.

This game was a big disappointment. We purchased it with great expectations; based on the reviews I read online.
Although I acknowledge the design is intricate - the interplay of all the cards is well thought-out and the art work is top-notch - the game play is a weak version of MtG.
Most frustrating is the fact that the 'powers' of each card on printed on a separate sheet. You must constantly refer to this sheet during play. And the fact that a 'lucky draw' can end the game is a SERIOUS FLAW in the game's design.

Among the greatest two-player game. Although you are in direct competition, it is not an 'aggressive' playing game. With a shared set of resources you are each attempting to gain the best final result.
Since it is played in several rounds (three is standard but I like to play five. It seems better balanced) you accumulate a final score in successive plays.

I was part of the Kickstarter program that supported the development of this game (my name is listed in the rulebook!).
It is a great Railroad game with a few interesting twists to it. The strategies are more complex than is initially apparent.
I thoroughly enjoy it with 2 players or more. It does require a larger investment of time than many other games.
