Comments
This is my least favorite of the chez series. It has the same problems as most of the other such multiplayer variants. It's 2 minutes of fun packed into 45 minutes of play.
Played this with a friend in the Navy after taking him out to the gaming shop.
Standalone Chez Geek expansion where the cards are generally underpowered, so it doesn't combine with the base game very well.

31.7.2008: This isn't a game, it's an activity. We used to replace the recent years footballs card so we alway had updated players.
Surprisingly -- unexpectedly -- enjoyable. Not too shabby. Played a lot more than recorded.
Obscure game that a friend gave me (Okay I begged).

17 owners. Read my full review below: http://boardgamegeek.com/thread/620057/a-rookie-wargamers-review-ottoman-sunset. Loud. Throw in the fact that some of the cards are not family friendly and you have the makings of a complete dud.

This game is highly enjoyed by different drama groups I've been a part of.

By 1290 BC the Hittites had managed to conquer Arzawa entirely and had captured the Mitanni capital, though elements of the Mittani people still resisted the further advances of the Hittites.
Comments
[4x with 2 players] We love the theme.
Once you get past the difficult rules (the problem is more in looking up details than in understanding while reading) you can partake in a light adventure game. Never realized how important decipherable rules were until I played this game.

Comments
Pitchcar Extension 4: Stunt Race --
Rating is for kids. The whole elevated track is *VERY* unstable. Because it is horrible. Keeping it for nostaligia purposes at this point. Actually think the game is worse and less fun with this.
See PitchCar.
Game pieces not exciting at all, may want to supplement with minis.

Comments
Interesting idea...
QWITCH.
Certain players can have very long turns and, in essence, run the table. A mild diversion. A *very* fast filler game to play between gaming sessions. It does require reading, so most little kids have difficulty with it, but 10 and up is really not accurate. Roll the die to determine direction (up, down, or equal).
