As the designers have said, this game doesn't include anything new. However, everything comes together so well (including the theme!) that this game is nearly perfect. Game play is fast and the game lasts only 10 rounds. There is enough strategy to keep you thinking, yet enough chaos and luck to make the game feel alive.
My only complaints are that the launch pad board doesn't lay flat, the parts don't easily fit back into the box (you have to know the secret or remove the insert), and I wish it would play with only 2 players.
