This is a beautiful (sometimes depending on what version you have) game with simple rules and complex thought required. This game places a premium on effective trading, and is better for two people than any other number. I have played this game for a whole evening, and have used it to teach school children algebra principles. The interesting quirk in this game is that when you trade tokens for other tokens according to two charts (different in each game) you attempt to purchase cards and have as few tokens as possible left over after you buy. I have been able to get quite absorbed in this game, and it is always refreshing. I write this review in 2002, and I purchased my first version, by 3M (not the prettiest one) at a second hand store for $.25. For some reason, this Sid Sackson game seems to go in and out of print, but if you are patient, you will find it at a garage sale, second hand store, or in the old stock of a Discovery Toy sales person. I highly recommend this game, and it is one that parents can play with children as well.
