it was one of the best, most interesting games i have played. it's even more fun when you talk in a gansta or italian voice. i played it with all my friends on a houseboat in sacramento, ca. it kept us awake all night because we couldnt stop playing. it's the best!

The Greatest Game Ever!
July 06, 2002

this strategy filled game, is a blast to play with as little as two and up to eight people, although you may get mad at people for trying to kill you, it's just a game. And you may be able to get some revenge the next game. My family went on vacation on a nice lake to go jet skiing and tubin, and wake boarding, and we played this 45 to an hour long game about three times a day every day for a week.

A Quick, Fun Game!
June 03, 2001

I found this game to be an easy, quick, fun game to play to get the gaming night started. I don't believe it was meant to be played for hours on end, but it is great fun to 'rub out' your friends on the 'hit list.' Doesn't have the deep strategy of a game like Acquire, but it wasn't designed to be a heavy strategy game. This game is well worth the price I paid for it, and we play it often. Lots of fun!
