Getting nominated for a big aware may have been the worst thing for this little game because it set people's expectations far too high. If you are looking for a game that is at the level of UNO, but has more decisions, and fewer card types to teach (I think people forget how many different cards there are in UNO, not ridiculous amounts, but Llama has less – which is better). This has been perfect for my non-gaming wife, my 9-year-old and my 5-year-old. The push-your-luck element creates a levelled playing field. Highly recommend this if you are wanting something that provides more decisions than your standard card games, but still want something that is so simple to play you can continue conversations while playing.
