What really amuses me about this review (warning: 100K GIF file) is how astoundingly accurate it is. I mean, yeah:
In general, the concept and imagination involved is stunning. However, much more work, refinement, and especially regulation and simplification is necessary before the game is managable. The scope is just too grand, while the referee is expected to do too much in relation to the players.
That’s the original three booklets in a nutshell.
