Comments: My rating is for a family game. I found it a little too lucky in the draw of cards. Nice components, people seem to enjoy it - I just found it a bit bland.

Looks like part of the contract that FRED signed with Knizia involved some real classics, and one that he couldn't sell to anyone else.

I used to play Attacke all the time and every my friend got addicted to it. I probably played it over 50 times. Attacke is essentially the same game except there is no rules about "face down value-1 cards". I still think Attacke is an excellent game. The strategy is not that simple once you start counting cards.
In the video, Tom says "there is not a huge advantage of passing". I think this is totally wrong. There are a lot of advantages to "letting other player's cards out" so that you win the next round cheaply. Also I saw players lose their gems (chips in Attack) many times by using wild 10 and lose the round.
