As the only newbie, I got pummeled in this one badly. I know of a few mistakes I made along the way (and a few misunderstandings of the rules at the start) plus starting last seemed to be quite a big drawback (especially for a new player). Turn order tends to matter a little too much for my tastes. Still, a very solid game and one I'd play again... although hopefully with people that are on a similar footing to me (or who will teach a little more of the strategy to me).

Also - absolutely great to play this with people who don't suffer from AP. We blazed through the game.

Enjoyed this one immensely. It got a lot of play this DGM weekend by several different groups and is bound to see a lot more play in up and coming weeks.

Not a game to play with the ultra-competitive though, as it can lead to a sore experience.

Player chaos! I suspect someone with a better memory (and keener awareness) will do much better at the game, but things are very difficult to predict and control.

Fun game for when you don't want to think too hard.

This was interesting, but I think I need to play it a few more times before I come to a verdict.

Played this to see if my wife would enjoy it and she does, so I'm hoping to find a decently priced copy of it to add to my collection.

I taught someone this game in high form. I actually was almost wiped out due to having all 4 token cards. I probably should have discarded rather than waiting for a flair card to activate. It was only my opponenet's lack of experience that saved me.

I played my first 4 player game on Saturday. Very interesting although it is less predictive with that many tokens going around. But it ended up a close game with 3 people on the verge of winning.

I also taught it to someone who then wiped me as the marines vs scientists. I think the 2 player is much more challenging. 4 player is really just making the best of your available moves. The 2 player you get to try to plan your opponent's moves as well, which I find more rewarding. But still a fast fun game either way.

Got into a long 5-player game. Though I feel it went long I think the overall feel of the game is pretty neat. I'd play again, but with fewer players.
