I like that you can deal someone in late and it doesn't break this game at all. This attribute makes Kill Doctor Lucky perfect for a game group when two or three members arrive and are waiting for more members to arrive.
If anyone knows of other games that people can join after the game has been going a few rounds, please send me a geekmail. :-)
Update: It doesn't work as I had hoped, because it goes on far too long for what it is.
Super cute art, funny card text, and gameplay that is easily accessible to even non-gamers, guarantee that this card game has its place. However... Leveling up and "kill the leader," now "kill the new leader" that sometimes goes on for FAR too long ensures that I'll only play this once or twice a year.
