I was on the fence about getting this game for a long time. I finally decided to order it, hoping that this would be a game that my kids would finally play with me. Especially my 10 year old who won't play any board games. And I am very happy to say that the game is a big success in my house. The kids love it, and so do the wife and I. I am very pleased with this purchase.
I enjoy playing this game so much. It's in my top 5 of all time. The production values are wonderful and it doesn't over stay it's welcome.
I'd say it's moderately easy to teach and great for kids and adults alike.
This is a fun "press-your-luck" style game. Players are drafting ingredients from their bags to place them on their boards without blowing up. Great decisions, great components and a fairly easy to learn game for 2-4 players.
