This is among the weakest episodes of season 1. The second set of Gamma Quadrant aliens arrive and head straight to Quark's, where they happen to introduce a game which traps and threatens the stations' senior crew.
While there is some tension throughout which prevents this episode from being total garbage, a potentially neat concept turns out to be quite stupid. The leader of the Wadi is incredibly annoying with his "move along home!" chants, while the game itself makes little sense.
The only really enjoyable part of the episode is near the end, where the Wadi leader, surprised at Sisko's anger, explains, "It is just a _game_!"
