What I found out when trying to play this game was that you were right. It
isn't very playable. The strategy involved aren't very complex and thus the
player that doesn't start has a tremendous advantage. The only strategy you
have, besides from moving slow, is to try to force the opponent to make a
move that leaves you with a pass. This ain't much of a strategy either.
Still, it was an interesting read and play.
