Reviews Review Game
By Oridyne From Staffs in United Kingdom

This is a cracking little game, though it is not a short game.

Despite its length is does not really outstay its welcome as the turns move along at an even pace, and by the 2nd & 3rd shows people are really getting the hang of things.

Players are building up their Circus to tour various cities to entertain and earn prestige. Players compete to hire the various acts on offer, whilst trying to obtain the kinds of acts the places they are about to visit really want to see. In addition players can hire personnel to assist them as well as invest to improve their Circus.

Before each show players place discs on the actions they want to take to prepare for each show, hire/invest/sell tickets/obtain resources. There are limits to the amount of slots available for some actions,based on players, and on others they are resolved from who went first to who went last. This can be very important when it comes to where to place one of your three precious actions.

Really fun game with some excellent artwork, components and the theme is worked well into the game itself.
