Kulkmann’s G@mebox author Ralf Togler writes about the game:

When I first read about the upcoming game Kumo Hogosha by MORNING PLAYERS I felt that this game could be something special. The whole game, beginning with the game box and ending with the smaller game pieces, is a brilliant work of art – clever, sophisticated, elaborate and extremely well illustrated. If this review was not about playing the game, I would say that everybody would have the need to get the game, just because of the great artwork. But let us see how the game works, before I come back to this aspect.
