Big Shot is an area majority game with several twists. What I find really appealing, is that fact that you get to place not only your own cubes, but also your opponents on the board. This creates lots of opportunities for clever tactical play and makes it very challenging to assess the value of the various sets of cubes that are auctioned off. Rules are simple and fast to learn, but gameplay is complex and very different from one game to the next. An obvious recommendation for fans of area majority games and auction games.
