As for the game's art, the game didn't win any awards in terms of design but this isn't necessary because it's not too ugly, nor too beautiful. All designs are simplified to avoid confusion in the game. Since the players can sit in 2 directions facing each other from the board, it is also printed in 2 directions.

As a student like me, I can easily bring this game to school to play with my friends because it is quite compact and the playing time is very fast. Not only that, there are many English words in the game that help you learn new words as well as help you build rapport with your teammates every time you play, you will learn how your friend thinks. You will find it great when your teammates only say one word but you can understand what they are thinking. As for everything else, I've already mentioned it above. This is a great game!!
