What I love: I loved the laughs coming from my son. It is fast paced. Loved the strategy in the game. It would be a great game on a plane or a road trip. My son’s favorite part was the strategy that is needed to “catch or stump” the other player. He loved trying to set me up to lose a chip. It promoted a lot of communication, which was great for my Max who has autism. (He thought the “rated highly educational” that was on the box was a great rating. “Fun and good for you, Mom!”) Ages 12 and up is pretty accurate.
What I would change: Nothing! Great card game.
