This is a great game! The instruction manual is difficult to understand and may result in you looking up specifics from wikipedia. Therefore, I would only recommend this game if you are an intense gamer and are looking for a very strategic game. This game would be difficult for younger kids and wouldn't be recommended as a family type game. I've only played this game once. It took 6 hours to play the game with 2 people, but I'm sure this will decrease with time since we had to keep referring to the rule book. Once players start remembering the different types of cards available for play it will add an additional element of strategy. The Cold War theme makes this game very unique and adds to the enjoyment level. My husband and I are gamers who enjoy games like Agricola, Descent, Talisman, and StarCraft. We are very happy with our purchase. It was worth every dollar spent and will be added to our rotation of favorite games.
