Overall a very weak game, where people play in isolation and have very few difficult decisions. Able to be won with out basic game knowledge.

I won my first game without reading any of the cards before I purchased them - I just built my purchasing power and then bought the most expensive cards I could afford.

Very disappointing.

The theme did not work with the mechanics. The disconnect was so great it hampered game enjoyment.

Fast, but not that much fun. I love the concept and I love the company. The game is pretty weak. Good for kids and card manglers.

If you'd like Yahtze this would probably work for you.

The game was evidently created in the time before anyone expected the rules to actualy teach the game.

A three for me, probably a 7 for kids between 5 & 10.

Very light children's card game. Very little skill required but a great intro to card games for young kids.

I've had this game for nearly 15 years, it amuses me that someone made a fancy version of it.

Not a real pirate game, just a game with a pirate theme.The mechanics are a trick taking-press your luck hybrid with variable trump suits. The only thing winning the trick taking portion does is help to designate the order in which players get to press their luck. If you are looking to find a way to teach your kids about trick taking games you could do worse.

Fun idea. Poor graphics. Game takes longer than its fun factor.
Killer Bunnies is a cute game for about 15-30 minutes. Longer than that is too long. The carrots as a "chance to win" is a brilliant mechanism for this kind of game and does a great job of keeping everyone involved. However, because I've never seen a game of Killer Bunnies end in 30 minutes or less I'll probably never play it again.

This early (semi) co-op game is a bit long in the tooth, I'd actually like to see this game remade with todays design trends, specifically Battlestar Galactia.

What a great idea... what a boring game. Could be a fun game if it lasted 3o minutes or less, but it is neither funny enough nor engaging enough to warrant a game over 30 minutes in length.

It's not that I hate Munchkin, it's just that I hate playing munchkin. I understand it's satire both about bad games and abusive players and it embodies both poor game design and abuses the players. I'd probably love Munchkin if it's play time were appropriate to it's mechanisms.

Rating is for an adult. For a kid at this level of math who likes animals, probably an 8.

Game play is very easy, almost too easy to engage a real gamer for long. For kids, new to gaming, it is a nice light game that helps polish math scores. The Square card corners guarentee the decks won't last long enough for one sibling to pass on to the next.

The art isn't awful, but the graphic design needs some help. The numbers could be a great deal more readable, but the poor design choices don't make the game unplayable.

If you want a classic, and brainless, family game that involves livestock you can't get any more classic than pass the pigs.

This game feels like an unfinished prototype. It's poorly put together and has huge choke points in the decisions making tree.

It's not just that this game is an unimaginative rip-off off Dominion, it's also that the cards are barely readable. Before getting my hands on the cards I thought it might be fun to play or own, but nope.

Not a great game but I'm going to keep the deck of cards for the next RPG I run and use it for NPCs. (An excellent $3 spend for that reason, not so much for the remedial game play.)

This game would, perhaps, be better with many adult beverage and a mindset allowing you to enjoy stereotyping.

very group specific, not for everyone. Can be fun, can also be very stupid. Suffers from player elemintation - someone can wait a long time for the game to end once they are eleminated.
