I love the humor! I'm not sure it's a game I would play frequently, but I think the flavor definitely takes the sting out of competition for me. (Kind of the way the pastels and panda in Takenoko make that an okay competitive game.) I'll stalk it to see if an early bird opens up. Otherwise, I'll pass.
I didn't get a chance to mention this before, but I got sucked into backing the Escape Big Box Kickstarter:
I played the game at GenCon last year and thought it was a lot of fun.
I know a lot of people really like that one. If I were more into dice games, I would have considered it.
