As the title says, this is a great game for anyone. Its easy to learn and to teach to new players, which makes it ideal for family. Plus its just plain fun. There is plenty of strategy here too. For instance, when to go after certain point tokens, how to set up the rondelle to accomplish the movements you want to maximize your points, and of course; how to keep your opponents from setting themselves up. So if you get a chance to play, definitely check it out. I'd say this game fits into the light to midrange strategy category, depending on the players involved. And would be a hit with players who like games like Carcassonne, Settlers and Ticket to Ride. (And those who like more advanced games too)

My favorite games tend to be medium weight Euros which take hours to play: Power Grid, Le Havre, Agricola, Trajan, etc. I've been wanting a game which works as a filler for that gap between when the long/heavy game ends and your brain is toast but it's not quite closing time yet.
The mancala/windmill offers a great combination of luck & strategy, the pieces are thick & high quality, the premise is logical, the goals are reachable, and I found it fun.
Travel the mancala/windmill to acquire fruit ("set collection"), then trade fruit for tiles. With a combination of luck & strategy one acquires bonus point tiles. When a certain # of purchase orders have been completed, the game ends. The player with the most points on their tiles wins.
IMO, it's good for those who are so new to Euro-games that they find Settlers of Catan overwhelming, and yet the game is still OK as a quickie filler for experienced gamers. It's got a nice balance between luck & strategy (giving the less skillful players a boost yet not overly handicapping the more skillful) and the mancala/windmill keeps it interesting. 2-4 players.
It's rated 7.08/10 at BoardGameGeek.com, which is a solid rating from thousands of gamers.
