It's proba...

by Brent

It's probably the least traditionally "fun" game I've played, but it's enjoyable as an occasional intellectual exercise and I think an exquisite example of genius of design. However, I feel like I need to come up for air after bearing the weight of this thing on my chest. As excellently designed as this game is, my real question is: how many times do I actually want to play it? It is, by a large margin, the most mentally taxing game I have ever played. Minute-for-minute, no game comes close to requiring the mental stamina necessary to play this game. Even the most sprawling 12+ hour 18xx games or all-day wargames don't require the focus this game does. The cognitive load is incredible, truly a mental marathon. I have a tremendous amount of respect for this game, and I stand in awe of people who can bear to play this beast more than once or twice a year.
