    Tough to learn; contains difficult strategies too; but is terrific once you are into it.

    It's great. It takes time to learn the game, but its worth it.

    The most complex and interesting trading game I've ever played. I agree with the others that the learning curve is steep, but you can enjoy it along the way.

  1. The uninitiated will find the game monstrously intimidating, and it takes a bit of playing before you really start to engage. In order to get the most out of it, you need to sit down, learn its ins and outs, and suffer a lot of early setbacks while you get familiar with the game's complex mechanics.

    One of the best strategy titles of the year…an out-and-out classic. [Feb 2002, p.65]

    It has a depth few games of this genre can match. Fewer still can equal the level of micromanagement. [Feb 2002, p.92]
