I got this game when it originally came out, and although I had some fun at first while playing online with strangers, when I started getting some trolling done to me (getting thrown off edges by the people I was playing with), it soured me on the experience and I just stopped playing – you can technically play it alone, but it’s not really fun, and pretty awkward. The reason I bring up this game again is because this past week I finally had a chance to play with two people locally (two of my work colleagues, during lunch time), and wow, did we ever have fun. This is absolutely how you need to play this game, with friends sitting next to you, so you can laugh together, get upset (sorta, jokingly) at each other when you’re screwing up, and of course freely talk to each other as you’re playing (although it’s still fun to use the icons sometimes). We’re now planning on playing once a week, and I really can’t wait for our next session. It’s also quite nice that even though only two of us have the proper game, the third person can play through the full game with us through shared play. It’s pretty great to re-discover a game like this, that I didn’t think I’d be revisiting.
