I'm a harsh critic and I feel guilty not giving this game five stars. What it does, it does so well. The board and pieces are beautiful, I love wooden games, and the play dynamic is easy to learn, plays quickly and is pure skill. It just isn't quite as deep as my favorite abstract games are, though, I may be missing something, because this is the game my wife ALWAYS wins!!!
The game length is short as it ends very fast- esp if the players are strateic game players...the wooden game pieces and colours are good, the game inviting but it ends fast and not as thought provoking as we thought it would have
