My wife and I sat down and played this and thoroughly enjoyed it. We are already looking forward to many nights playing and plotting.
the rule structure is a bit obscure at first due to wording, but there are videos and a manual available (search Google for 'Koi Pond Card Game'). It was almost as much fun just learning as it was playing. Definitely worth the money and easy to play as long as you have the space.
