Super Fun!

Well done! You really came up with a winner here. The game is easy to learn and simple to play, but still really fun and exciting--- not always an easy balance to achieve!

One of the other great things is that the structure is loose enough to lend itself to slight variations in the rules, and maybe even future expansions of the idea... I haven't thought through mechanics or balance issues, but I've already got a couple concepts for going in that direction. :)

All in all, great job! Definitely looking forward to playing it with you at some point. Oh, and thanks for the credit! Glad I could help!

KdO,
