Sam says:

I learned how to play this game from a friend and was glad it was explained to me. I can see how the instructions might be a little overwhelming to some who has never played it. One of my favorite games.

I picked this up at the store thinking it would be a fun easy game. I took one look at the rules and gave up very quickly. I returned it. Then, a few weeks later a friend brought it over and showed me how to play in a few minutes and we played multiple games. Very fun! Now I have to go back to the store to get it again. Maybe I'm just a visual learner but it wasn't very easy to learn how to play by reading the game rules (for me at least). Glad my friend explained it to me.
