Aquarius, the Looney Labs game of elemental connections, is celebrating 10 Awesome Years!
Looney Labs has updated the design and added some new features and new ways to play. Kids love the colorful design, fast play, and familiar matching strategy. Adults love the game's competitive edge. It's the perfect first family card game. The player with the longest hair goes first connecting element cards to complete a secret goal. Deal the cards and plan your move, but don't get too comfortable -- you may get zapped!
Get set for great family fun with this exciting take anywhere game.
Pretty, Multi-Player Dominos with *strategy*!
The bluffing elements are incredibly interesting. There are luck elements, but not huge ones.
One of my favorite card games, and one of the few American card games I've heard of that have had success in Germany. (We're always importing their winners, but few games are able to 'swim upstream.')
This game flows smoothly, has great artwork, VW Buses, a concept that anyone can understand, and fits in your back pocket. Aquarius is great because it is fun, but doesn't require a lot of time or re-reading of the rules, and anyone can play. Overall, this game makes a great gift--just make sure to get one for yourself.
I have no regrets about getting it. Just not quite as exciting as some of my others... but I do like having lighter games in my collection as well, and this game fills that need.
Finally, the game works better with 3 players than only 2. Two isn't aweful, but when you trade goals, suddenly every player knows what all the goals are. My wife suggested we alter the rules a bit to say you had to change goals with one of them in the pile, rather than the other player. We haven't tried that variant yet though. Anyway, with 3 or more players, only two of the players know what each other has after that card is played.
Once again, a good and fun game that's easy to learn, and fun. Just not THAT great. Yet, I am glad I have it. I recommend it if you're looking for something lighter.
