from Hamilton, VA United States
The Good: The game is fun once you get past the difficulties. It is certainly not typical. Mechanics are easy and a turn is fairly quick. The components are attractive and well made.
The Bad: Print on cards is small and hard to read (but there's lots of empty space on the cards). The rulebook is poorly written. 1st edition left out a rule so no mention of one of the decks. (2nd edition corrected this but you can't download 2nd ed from E-G, only BGG.) -- Note: if playtesters had never seen the game, these problems would have been known.
The Ugly: Card references are wrong -- Example: Several cards say "Roll Black Die" or "Roll Yellow Die" All dice are white. The different dice were probably designed to be colored but changed during manufacturing. (Note: Playtesting should have caught this)
Conclusion: Take your time with the rules, download 2nd edition rules and FAQ from BGG. Use house rules where gaps still remain..... If you do all this, the game is fun.
