theoretically i like this game more than a 7, but i'm so bad at it, that it pisses me off, so i take off a point or so. i've done better in recent games, so i bumped this to an 8. the expansions seem like cool fun too. doesn't this game just grow on you, though? bump again. more maps == better. always willing to play. On third thought, after many years, this game is almost too harsh. Steam, the reimplementation, is much more fun, and softer.
pretty fun if you get into the theme. lots of scenarios make it different every time. plays quickly too. but lots of the scenarios are broken or unbalanced. with the rebalanced and edited scenarios, it is a much better game... but alas, now it is difficult to find
i'm surprised at the low rating. this is one of the more fun games we play. it can be devastatingly short though. which is another curious thing, since a lot of people complain that the game is too long. i've never found it so, especially if you make alliances.
interesting and cool. i like the ship building aspect better than the running through space getting blown up, but this is one that will grow on me with time. definitely need a few plays to get the ship building down. if everyone who played it and rated it less than a 7 would play it a few more times, i bet their score would go up.
wow i like game a lot. i've even won it once -- and that was the last time i played it. i think i've finally got down how to not screw myself in the power plant auctions. this is the undying game in my collection, and i have since upgraded the rating. everyone usually wants to play this, and i'm okay with that. add in a map expansion or two, and this will be good for a long time. the one main problem i continually have with it, is the randomness of the plants coming up, which can lead to stagnant game situation where no one wants to buy a plant.
icons icons icons, why are you plaguing me?? this is a tough one to learn, but is rewarding in successive plays. there's a lot to explore and learn from the huge stack of cards. it seems to play well with varying groups and sizes too.
