Carnival of Monsters

Just got this. It's a fun drafting game by Richard Garfield (the creator of Magic the Gathering). It actually has a lot of the trappings Magic has. Lands, Monsters and good art on the cards. But it's not a combat game. The theme is you are a Monster Hunter who traps monsters in an effort to Join a Monster Hunting Society. You pass cards around a table and draft lands, monsters and other types of cards to try to accumulate the most points (monsters are worth points) at the end of four "seasons". So far I really like it although I have only played it a couple of times.

Just wanted to bump this thread because wife and I have come to really really like this game. It is a light, casual easy to learn card drafting game with really nice art that plays quick (maybe too quick since we instituted a house rule to make our games longer) but also has interesting strategy. Highly recommended.
