Our family loves this game! First of all the tiles look and feel beautiful. It's just nice to look at. But the game is strategic and the dynamic of how you play definitely changes based on how many people are playing. Super fun. Haven't tried using the other side of the boards-- but surely we will. We love board games and this is now our favourite.
A great game to play when your time is limited as can be finished in around 15-20 minutes. Very strategious gameplay, requires a bit of forethought (a bit like chess) to set up future moves and to cripple your opponent. My only criticism would be that the instructions seemed a bit unclear and watching YouTube videos certainly hleped with explanation of the rules.
