Absolutely a great thinker, with lots of nervous moments and a little strategy. It is definitely a "hard to explain, easy to play" game, and after a single round most people understand exactly how to play.
The strategist at your table might not be completely involved, but anyone who likes a good, competitive game with hard choices will love this. This, unlike many card games, does not feel like an exercise in randomizing. You feel like you have a lot of control over how you use your cards and match your sets.
The card quality is excellent, the art is really cool, and fun. There are symbols, colors, and numbers, so the game is very accessible to color blind or dyslexic players.
