Which is I think where this 'game' shines. I've found far more value in it as an exploration into the what-ifs of time travel than as a game to be played with friends. It has challenged the way I think about time travel in fiction, and provided me hours of thought exercise based on the rules provided within. If it had playability, I'd have given it a five star rating, but I think the philosophical merits of the book warrant the four-star rating on their own. It is 'fictional edutainment,' and does that quite well.
The world however that the game is set in was... a bit boring for me. I didn't like the political groups that the characters had to join, the history was unimpressive and seemed half baked, and I was left with the thought "ok, I can travel through time... now what?" I needed a little bit more to understand the motivations of these beings. More of an enemy to oppose.
