First of all let me be frank and honest about my relationship to the author of this solitaire adventure. He is my big brother. He it was that got me playing T&T more than 30 years ago and recently he has introduced my boys (ages 9 and 11) to role-playing. Indeed, he let Tom and Matt play test this very product.
I very much enjoyed playing this solo. There are pre-generated characters so that the lazy or busy, such as me, don’t need to spend time rolling up a new alter ego. I think the atmosphere of being trapped in the giant ant colony is well done and there appear to be numerous places to explore and dangers to encounter. I liked the idea of the protective scent decaying the longer my character stayed underground, though I perhaps didn’t enjoy the ‘housekeeping’ that this entails to keep track of it.
Overall, I think Sid has done a good job in putting together this book. It plays well and the cover and interior artwork by Jeff Freels is excellent. Well-done big brother!
