  1. Classic still hold mystery
    by Karl F. Davie Burgdorf, USA - Nov 26th 2017

    This was a re-buy of this game from way back. It still is enjoyable to play and offers a flashback to the "old way" of doing things ... and that's not a bad thing!

  3. Great story, where┬┤s the game?
    by barbara gilbert, Germany - Dec 31st 2016

    I liked the game, because it tells the story quite well and is painted beautifully, but you have to sit patiently and can do barely anything, so you sort of have to wait through the story....
