      Yeah, it's fun. It's very simple, but it's a good time.

      Quick game that plays in bite-size rounds -- not deep, but it has a deck-management aspect that isn't immediately apparent. I imagine a lot of people will slag it for being a no-brainer, either because they miss the bits of gaminess that it does have, or because they're expecting it to be something it's not. It's a game that I've liked to play while talking or watching something, which might not translate well to "HD next gen gaming" up on the big screen, but still kinda cool to see someone doing this translation.
