Thanks so much for your comment. I'll see what I can do for sorting a review out for you. But a quick reply: 2 players. Self contained. REALLY easy to play.
I could recommend plenty of games to you but they too are going to be quite tricky as well in rules, so this sort of thing sounds more right for you right now, yes.
The game is quite good, rather playable. Not the best it could have been but by far not a bad game at all, esp for online price £31.50 which my friends and I split up money three ways to buy.
Hopefully review coming soon.
