The game comes in a handy bag and is easy to set up. It basically takes 2 minutes to read the rules and start playing. The first game I played took about 15 minutes (2 player). It was amazing! The games moves quickly. There is some thinking involved but not too much. Whenever it gets too tricky the element of luck comes in.
Its a really nice game to relax, have fun and still have a nice conversation while playing.
$25 for a fun evening with friends? That's more than worth the money.
It is a great combination of strategy and chance (imagine a game of Chess where the pieces could change mid-game). Strategy purists can play a variant where the types of pieces are fixed at the beginning and don't change.
Another feature of this game is that it is really portable - a fabric board, bag, and pieces. So it travels well in the van, camping, backpacking (no box to break or mess up).
The production quality isn't as polished as many "Big Co." games, but it has a nice "hand-crafted" feel which I don't mind at all (doesn't detract from playing).
