|There is a lot of game packed in this little box! In particular, this game has a very unique mechanic (well, also in Edel, Stein, & Reich, which is a sibling to this but not available in USA) where two players need to make a deal for which can carry out an action that they both want, and to do so they barter using a very clever bartering system. Still fairly light, with randomness of dice, but great fun for those who don't mind that sort of thing.
|Basari has a wonderful innovate take on simultanious action selection - there are only 3 actions available to choose and if 2 players choose the same one, they have to negotiate to settle who gets to do the action. This introduces both bluffing and player interaction in a very entertaining way.
