This plays really nicely.
I've been gaming for 40 years (not nonstop...) and often games likes like these present all the right elements, but have some flaw in the rule set that limit the fun and make you yell in frustration. This has no such flaws.
It's very satisying, not hard to learn and is the first game to keep me at the keyboard late into the night in along time.
Well done devs.
