I feel like such an idiot for not realizing this game was on my Flashback 4 already! I got a copy from No Swear Gamer in the mail today, fired it up, and my daughter and I had a blast! Just makes me sad that we could have been enjoying this game a lot sooner, but I guess it was an early title that flew under my radar. I even listened to the episode in anticipation of receiving my copy, and Ferg had given it a decent review, so I'm just baffled how I missed out on this game till now.
If you have two players, give this game a go, it's worth it. I don't see myself playing marathon sessions of this, but you can easily play best two out of three games and have some fun.
I've always wanted to like this game. I've seen the potential for fun ever since getting it for Christmas '83, but it has been potential unrealized. My siblings didn't want to play it with me, not for more than a minute or two (total!), and the last time I tried playing it with my kids, they didn't quite get it. They were much younger then, perhaps I should try again.
The game is widely ridiculed, I threw a (loving!) barb its way in my audio submission for the California Games episode, but this is definitely a game that I WANT to like.
