Time for some Cutthroat action

This is a fast-playing, innovative little card game where you play some co-op mixed nicely with backstabbing.

I think the encounters could deal with more 'lethality' as we were carving them down and none of us ever died, even though we were trying to kill each other. One monster in particular looked nasty, but we cut it down in one turn.

Want to try the expansions. I really wished they included variable character powers with the base set--without them it can feel a little lacking.

I really didn't care for this game. First, there were too many ambiguities with the cards. Secondly, the gameplay seems to be pre-determined to be "building up to a big fight amongst the players." For the game to work "correctly", people are supposed to first work cooperatively, then kill each other. Which brings up another thing...new monsters can be added, so instead of ten monsters you can fight more, etc. Bleah. The game takes way too long, like a glossy, (very good looking) Munchkin.

I liked Red November better. Different theme, but same idea and much better execution.
