Very poorly designed game. Don't waste your money!
on March 20, 2008
The real tragedy is that this could have been a top notch game if programmed correctly. It seems as though in any of the games that are based on chance, particularly the ones that use dice rolls, the game seems to be programmed to choose a "lucky" player at the beginning of the game. That player will roll doubles every other turn, or high numbers or whatever that player happens to need. You can tell who the "lucky" player is within a few turns. I can tell within 5 or 6 moves in one of these games who is going to win. It really makes the game very boring after a while and not much fun to play. It's gotten so annoying that I only play the games that rely on skill only and don't play any of the games where luck comes into play.
I know it is possible to do a good job programming software for random selection because I have played many good games of this type. It is just a shame that the programmers who work for Encore(the company that makes this game)are either too lazy or not skilled enough to create such a program. Because this could have been a great game instead of the waste of money that it is.
