A lot of fun. The symbols for the needs are a bit confusing on a first playthrough but you'll pick them up quickly enough. A few helper cards with the symbols and a description line would make that easier but it'd also increase the cost a bit. I'll probably print up a few helper cards myself for first timers.
The 5-player games I tried were pretty evenly scored, 2 or 3-way ties for most of a rank/suit were pretty common. That wasn't at all a problem with 3.
All-in-all a keeper and very much worth the cost.
