What makes Clans great (appart from the colourful components) is really trying to figure out who is playing which color. It provides a whole new dimension to the game, where your decisions become influenced by uncertainty and thus much less predictable.
This is an interesting abstract game, with very nice components and plays extremely fast (less than 30 minutes). The three different ways to score and the mystery of not knowing your opponents, makes this a unique game. Trying to figure out the color of other players and make your best play is somewhat difficult, yet I’m sure there’s more to this game than I’m seeing.
