"This is the dawning of a new game from the skewed minds that brought you Fluxx (GAMES, August 1997). Most of the 60 beautifully rendered cards feature either one, two, or four (not three) of the five elements (earth, air, fire, water, ether). Each player is randomly assigned one element. Cards are played to the table dominoes-style, with like elements placed adjacently. The first player to connect seven of his element cards wins. Sounds easy until you add in the Action cards, which allow you to trade goals, shuffle and redeal them, trade hands, reposition cards, or zap them from the layout. Luck plays a big role, but that doesn't stop this from being a groovy game, man. - JC (John Chaneski)"
