Game of the Month
March 2011
At first glance this is a small card game in a big box. But the built-in mechanics pose a real challenge for everyone, even more so against one’s own desires. Frivolously, we may be tempted to create a mighty card display as a source for victory points, but in consequence poverty increases in our district and threatens to suffocate us with its burden of negative points at game end. Modesty rules and we need to apply economic reasoning when using our cards. Everyone for himself, yet logical, varied and creative. A real Martin Wallace hit.
