Eric wrote a complete and excellent review on his blog, so I decided to simply add my own succinct endorsement, and host a giveaway for this cool time management game. I have to say when I first saw the game start up, I was a little skeptical. I wouldn't want to run a real sub shop, but playing at it is admittedly pretty fun.
