I read a number of reviews from couples that saidthey enjoyed playing together so I thought I'd give it a shot. The cards are pretty and the game is reasonably simple. It took us a few minutes to work out that a ‘round’ is an entire game; basically you agree before hand if you want to go for a best out of three approach or total the points at the end of 5 games etc. There are definitely different strategies that can be used to decide when to play cards and when to hold them back. We've enjoyed playing and there's a definite competitive edge!
