A simple encounter-based game that is playable with minimum setup and learning time. I'm not sure if I'm missing something but spellcasting seems a little weak (or expensive, depending on how you view it.) Although the game is playable by 1 to 4 people, I think it really is fun with 3-4 as the tension from choosing between exploring a bit more or trying to complete the game before someone else does becomes greater. For solo play there are other options, including Chronicles of Arax from the same publisher.
