This game was very interesting to play, we had a few bumps in the begining getting a handle on the rules and that slowed the speed of the play time. Once we grasped the rules and the game speed was much better and the game itself became a lot of fun.
The cards were beautifully made nice and thick, sturdy. The graphics are wonderful with lots of detail and colors.
Playing the Game:
When we started playing this at first the instructions were a bit confusing. Once we figured it out then it was fast pasted a fun to play. We did notice that if you play with more then 2 people the game flowed better.
I think this game has a great protential to be the next family favorite! It is easy enough to play with the whole family. I love the improved graphics, easy to read instruction on the cards and just the overall concept. I would take a look at the instructions since they were a bit confusing but other then that I really like this version. Crazier Eights Second edition is now on Kickstarter go check it out!
