Review: “One of the best games we have played. I highly recommend watching the ‘how to play video’ — the rules are very well explained, I watched it once by myself and the second time with my children and then I guided them during our first game. My 9 and 12 yo were able to plan their strategies by themselves the second time we played.” Eve
