An absolutely brilliant review in The Guardian, the UK broadsheet newspaper.

"Its magic though comes from Nintendo-esque levels of refinement, with each table a honed masterpiece of risk and opportunity"

Not only is it a great review, the critic manages to explain the game perfectly using very few words, something I've never managed to do as well despite writing dozens of pitch docs, spec docs, intros and explanations to the game.

Whether the review is good or bad, I think developers always appreciate when a reviewer 'gets' the game, and this review is a great example of somebody getting what we were aiming for.
