Liquid Crystal is a truly unique and innovative game, especially for those of us for whom the best part of the game is watching (and helping) the characters grow! The rules are much quicker and intuitive than most other games on the market. In addition, while it can sometimes be difficult to obtain the specialized dice that most RPG's require, a deck of playing cards can be picked up almost everywhere! (Hell, many gas station convenience stores carry some!)
If this game has a down side, it's that it is'nt really designed for hack-and-slash obsessed players (well, those obsessed with killing everything arround them have always worried me anyway.) This is a game for those who are not devoid of empathy.
This is a truly special game, and worth much more than the fin ($5.00) it cost to purchase it!
