A very quick one this. The copy I received to review would not load. I mean, none of it would - the game comes with three 'player cassettes', on 'umpires cassette', and in my case, as a reviewer, a special 'reviewers cassette' containing excerpts from the 25th round of play (!). Apparently you can extend the game to a six-player one (at a price), but for all that, this seems to be very much a pass-the-note-and-wait-for-the-reply type of game. The boards look nice, even if the rest of the packaging is dire (the instructions are printed in the kind of ink that renders the Daily Mail useless for anything except, um, eating your chips out of); but I think if I'd shelled out twenty quid for this lot I'd be a bit annoyed to find I couldn't load any of it. It I get a loadable copy I might have another go at this next month. Get it in gear, men.
