4.0 out of 5 stars Good for those that like a cerebral and tactical game, 20 Jun. 2014
This review is from: Seasons Board Game (Toy)
Picked this up just based on ratings I've seen. Initially we played it with 4 players, and we found it really confusing. All the game mechanics are interlinked and one can't easily be explained without knowing how the others work. Terminology takes a bit of getting used to. With "Power Crystals" read "Points". After a couple of playthroughs (with 2 players) it all became clear.

This is quite an American style game in that one person can be in the lead from the start and the others don't really have any chance to overtake, which can be quite frustrating the losing player. There can also be quite a lot of luck involved. However I think this is the kind of game a person could get really good at by learning tactics and knowing good combos of cards.

A lot of the cards have on-going effects and the player needs a sharp focus to remember all the things the cards do on his or her turn.

Lovely themed game and nice artwork. Probably better with 3 or 4 players. Shame there is no option for 5 or 6 players.
