Rating on three plays. Hidden roles provide different goals, card passing for player interaction, a tight filler. Fills the same niche as Bang, but it's a better game.

A fun little game if you enjoy the theme. There are some significant balance and randomness issues which are aggravated by the length of play. Not a great game, but a good game.

This game would be a great gift for fans of the music industry, people who really like Rock Band/Guitar Hero, audiophiles, or real musicians.

I give it a Yellow light.

If you only have two people to play a game, this is a fine game. The rules are a bit contrived and the rules booklet needs some re structuring. The non collectible expansions are cool, but I suggest they release a second starter set of some kind so people can get the rules with different factions.

It's basically dice-driven Kahuna, with poorly presented rules. (The font is way too small.) I like Cambria but it needed more polish, and a bigger board.

Unoffensive and easy to teach to non gamers. It was cheap and easy with the variable/fixed market seriously compromising what little control players have. In all the game seemed to take a little long for what it was, but that issue may be ameliorated by really knowing the game and being familiar with the deck.

I didn't hate it, but I'll never spend money on it. And no, i's not exactly Penny Arcade or Ascension, though it took some bits from both.

The basic concept - a conflict race game - is good, With 3-4 players it is a reasonable diversion,though some games with four players, however all the games with more players really drag out. The tiles sure seem to develop a sameness that gives rise to tedium after the first half hour.

Still, there are some interesting choices and an neat risk/failure/reward system with Grit.

Graphics are marginal. Rules are unclear in places due to the lack of graphics or component explination, and they could have used some graphic inserts to make sense also the terminology from cards to rules book don't always match.

With the right group this can be fun, but only if they have played before. This i s one of the games that benefits from knowing the rules, tiles, and cards right from the outset.

In The Golden City event cards are flipped up each turn tell you what two scoring opportunities will be available on that turn. One scoring opportunity will be from location of buildings and the other from good cards acquired.

Players claim location cards which will allow you to choose where to build. (There is some possible conflict here, and is one of the more engaging mechanisms.)

Then players build and gain the resources on the spaces on which they have constructed. (Building in some locations requires a special, limited availability, item acquired from other select build locations.)

To win you need to get the right goods early. Control map choke points limiting the ability for other players to build where they want, and get to the center of the board before other players so you can get the bonus points. Being in a position to take advantage of the scoring cards, and get the market leader for those scoring opportunities seems to be nearly as much luck as skill.

Take that style civ building. This is not a friendly game. At first play, one player was very angry with all the take-that brutalization, but then he won. Cunning play can win out, even over someone else's early game advantage.

A great game for people interested in WWII history. Victory conditions are awarded for battles and resources used in battles. Vehicle battle resources are restricted by the years they can be used and time of day in which they can fight. Their effectiveness depends on whether it is an air, land or sea battle. In each battle, the players declare sides by playing resource cards, the side with the highest total wins, and the most effective of the winning side distributes the spoils to the victors. Some very neat mechanics I have not explained very well.

Fun, I'd play it again. Actually, I'd like to play all the T2R games more to get a better feeling for the nuances of the different games in the series

I didn't play the final released version, so this rating may change once I've played the final version, but I had a lot of fun with the play-test rounds.

Not the kind of game I normally seek out, but very good. I would play with the right players time and again. It is not a game I'd suggest to just anyone, it is not a general-interest game. Some of the figures in the first set I had a chance to review were disfigured and poorly cast, but most of them were in good shape.

Not really my kind of game. Sure I'd play it again, but it's not one I'd suggest. And it's ugly.

I was surprised by the tension generated in this roll & move game. Fun and fast, with twists, but very basic. I'd recommend Betrayal at House on the Hill before this one, but this game is faster.

a decent set making game. If you are looking for a card game where sets are an issue, I recomend it.

Wacky, yet also a brain burner. The simultaneous competition to find duplications in the die roll sometimes causes my brain to hurt. In a good way.

Ow, hurts my brain! Good game. It is simultaneous speed play, so if you don't like that kind of thing you probably will not really like this game. A good game for kids though, it would probably teach them perception and pattern recognition skills.

Number three in my list of favorite zombie games. Very fun, but really needs reference cards and quicker setup.
