I bought this game after my sister showed it to me six years ago. I took to it right away and our family, as they grew up and were introduced to it learned to love it as well. In its basic form the game is exceptionally well balanced and there isn't one dominant strategy that will allow you to win. This is because the interaction between the players is critical during the phase in which you select your role for the turn. The expansion cards are good, but I recommend that you only use one role expansion card at a time; otherwise the game becomes unbalanced.
Not only is the game play excellent, but the theme fits well and the art, while quirky, really appeals to me.
Overall an exceptional game and one that we will continue to play for many years, in fact we've played it so much we will soon need to purchase another copy as it is almost worn out.
