9.11.13: I play high stakes No Limit Hold'em cash games and that's what my rating reflects. Casual poker is an almost entirely different game and would generate a much lower rating for me. The game is magical when played with 8 other players that know how to play and with real stakes on the line.
9.11.13: I've only played 2p but this is an amazing game, don't judge the pink box. It makes Dominion seem dull. Very well designed, very well balanced, unlimited replayability (especially if you add the Shadows expansion). It's terrific and highly under rated. If you like 2p deck builders you have arrived at the Summit!
12.26.13: Terrific, it's long and can be tough to get going, but, terrific! It's a gamers game, period. The only barriers are that it's tough to teach and long to play, it's really a 10 but for those aspects. In other words I can't wait for the iOS App, because that's what Apps are best at, reducing playtime and streamlining complexity!
9.11.13: Really smart game. Seems weird on first play or two, but, it all comes together nicely and makes plenty of sense once you wrap your head around the uniqueness of the gears and the tough challenge of either removing or placing workers each turn.
