Why buy this?? There are so many better card games!
on November 19, 2012
I'm surprised at the number of positive reviews.
The best, and maybe only good thing, is the artwork on the cards...the pirates are funny looking.
But this is a rather boring game that has almost no replay value. It's just same old same old each time. Our son liked it for a while (around age 10) but we're glad to not have this in our house any more.
If you are looking for a fun card game you can play with kids, here are a couple games we prefer significantly to Loot:
7 Wonders (I'm stretching the definition of "card game" a bit, but this is a great game too.)
If you have a TON of games, playing this once or twice a year won't kill you, but why buy this when there are better games?
(If you've never tried Dominion, get the original...we can play for HOURS on end.)
