1.0 out of 5 stars We shouldn't have purchased this at all, January 15, 2013
This review is from: We Didn't Playtest This: Legacies Card Game (Toy)
I purchased this game intending to play it with my husband. We tried it a couple of times. It was incredibly stupid. Not funny stupid, just...stupid. We like some really weird, really dumb stuff, but this was too much even for us.

After playing, we decided that the game is probably more fun if played with 5+ drunk adults, or several 12 year olds. You definitely need a group for this one. With only two players, the game goes from delightfully nonsensical to nearly unplayable. The game is literally over every 60 to 90 seconds. Who wants to shuffle and redistribute cards that often? What is the point of playing? We tried modifying the rules a bit ("you lose" cards instead mean "discard one from your hand,") but even that didn't improve the game much. I did actually try to play with three young relatives, aged 11, 12 and 13. Guess what? It was only marginally less craptastical. They didn't like it much, either.

The game seems to be marketed as whimsical, silly, enjoyably random, but in reality 85% of the cards are confusing, not fun/funny, or just plain stupid--even to middle schoolers. The only plus to the game was that it came with about 20 blank cards, which allowed us to make up our own cards based on inside jokes--and those were the cards that made the game fun. I give this one two very firm thumbs down.

(I purchased Gloom at the same time, and while there is a slight learning curve, that has been much more fun.)

I completely disagree with your posting. The game is meant to be stupid and not understandable, because the company didn't play test it and it is just random fun.

It is fun with friends and we played for several hours once it was so fun. This is one of the best games we have ever played and I would recommend it to anyone!

The whole point of my review was that we, in particular, found it to be "stupid and not understandable" in a negative way, not in a fun way. In my opinion, the game sucks. That is my opinion, and that's why I put that in -my- review. About my own personal feelings. Different strokes, and all that.

I'm glad you enjoyed the game--you should feel free to write a positive review, yourself.

Maybe you shouldn't have bought something that in the description says "one minute games"?
