SummaryQuick, unpretentious fun
The GoodThis is an enjoyable turn-based board game. It's not very demanding of your time - you can play an entire game in much less than an hour. The tone is lighthearted, the graphics are bright and cartoony. The gameplay is very addictive.
The BadIt's not really a criticism of this game specifically as much as a problem with most early Windows games. When this game came out, it had the (for the time) demanding requirement that your display was set to 256 colors. Unfortunately, this game will ONLY display correctly in 256 colors at 640x480 resolution. You'll have to tweak your display before you run it. There are also many animations that play so quickly on a modern PC that they're all but invisible, but none of the actual gameplay seems to be affected by clock speed.
