    Rating: 7Reviewed By: Michael W06/25/2012
    Summary ReviewThis is a good party game. Very easy to play, it's basically Apples to Apples meets Pinky & the Brain. You don't need a lot of room to play and can pick it up really quickly. The packaging is a bit tight, so you may need to find a baggy to store it in. It is a bit of a thinking/creative game so even though it's easy, you need to have your head in it for it to really work - not something to play when you're really tired.
    Detailed ReviewBasically, this is meant to be a party game. The rules are very simple and easy to follow. It takes about 5 minutes to learn - less if you've played Apples to Apples or something similar.

    The basic premise is pretty simple - a bunch of mad scientists are attempting to achieve a goal each round which could be anything - including the ever popular take over the world - using everyday objects from the mundane(gold) to the inane(garden gnomes).

    Play is smooth and easy. Really, it's pretty much ideal for what it is though because you're required to create mini-stories each round it isn't something to play when you're tired or looking for mindless entertainment because even though the stories may be nonsensical, you do need your wits about you a bit to make them up.

    The artwork is about as basic as it gets with the item card designs looking like chalkboard drawings.

    The packaging is a bit tight and seems like the cards barely fit back in the box properly. It almost seems like they should fall out a bit, but they don't. A small investment in a pint sized freezer bag might not be a bad idea - just in case.

    But overall, this is a really fun game and worth the money.
