This review is from: Ingenious Strategy Game (Toy)
Fun to play and quick, simple-to-understand rules. But playing the game is not a pleasurable experience because the tiles, racks and little pegboards to keep track of your scores are of such poor, cheap and nasty quality. You have got big, very thin plastic tiles which stand up in a flimsy rack which falls over as soon as anyone breathes or fidgets. They are placed on a hexagon pattern on a board as you play the game, a bit of texture on the board would help here too because any light brush with a sleeve sends them all skittering around the place. Then you have to keep track of your moves by moving little plastic pegs along holes in a bit of cardboard, the holes aren't quite big enough for the pegs so you have to manhandle them a bit, which bends the card.
No reason why anyone under 8 couldn't play the game itself, except for the unmanageably flimsy build quality of the components which require firm, but gentle and steady handling!! An extra quid or two per game would have made a good idea into a game which is much more pleasurable to play.

I couldn't agree more. A good game made very frustrating by the flimsiness of the board and pieces.
