Summary: On searching for a sequel for a game like the original Touchmaster I skipped 2 based on reviews and bought this. At first I wasn't sure but after playing a couple weeks. I like it, I admit I like card games and these are entertaining. Some of the games can be more difficult more adult like than, "kiddie" games. I am happy I own it but definately recommend the original highly over this.
Summary: I only really play two games on this version. I just don't care for the card games. I do not play chess. But I do like the pipe game that is really a game of pipe dream. I play that for a while then go to another game. Was it worth the money? probably not. They will have a ways to go to beat the touchmaster one game. I have tried two times to buy another version of touchmaster, in game 2 and 3, but alas, game one is still the best of the three.
Summary: I got this for Christmas and have spent the past week playing it. Some of the games i like. The poker aspect doesn't bother me, although I would have really preferred more solitaire type games than poker ones. Some of the other games, like Fuse Line and Domino Run and the slime pipe ones, I'd swear that the game is programmed to keep you from winning, because it reaches an impossible level that is beyond frustrating.
