Is it just me or is that review increadbly short and vauge.  I have no idea how the game is played or what its like, besides the small section saying you buy and sell things.  It should be at least 3x as long and actualy tell me about the gameplay and things incorperated in it, like why would you need to make new timelines and such.
Screw it, I'm buying crayons and paper. I can imagineer my own adventures! Wheeee!

Chuck Norris is the reason Waldo is hiding.

because the rules are about the same length as the review.

It's simply this: you move to a space, you take up the resource there, and all the cards shift. Therefore, the scoring/selling point at the end has changed the values for all the commodiites. So you have to plan several movies in advance to expect any return. That is over all game play.

Yeah I couldnt say more without directly printing the rules... Gameplay was fun, but its a basic time killer.
Its an automated robot. Based on Science!
