Given that this is a negotiation game with boardplay -
I'm not surprised it was a luke warm reception for it.
I have yet to play it, but given the rules, and
reviews, it seems like this game really places a
premium on dealmaking skills and if you have bad tiles
and can't deal your way into a better position, you
are doomed to have a bad game and probably an
unenjoyable one at that.
I've tried it once with some that weren't great deal
makers and wanted to optimize their deals instead of
working with the theorey that one should make deals
optimized or not and lots of them. I liked it, but i
can see how it might drag.
