I came close to picking this up, but I was frightened off by the reports of the steep learning curve - not mechanically, but in terms of effective gameplay. Apparently, it's the kind of game you need to play repeatedly with the same group so everyone is climbing the learning curve together, because bad decisions early can scupper your entire game and a player who has played three times will wipe the floor with someone who has played twice.
Still, it sounds very intriguing. Let us know how it plays.
I played a family Christmas present yesterday - Mission Red Planet
. Highly recommended. Straightforward (my 9 year olds caught on right away), with lots of interaction and laughs.
