Storyline

Deep Space Nine is expecting a visit from a species from the Gamma Quadrant, the Wadi, to make official first contact. Commander Sisko and other high ranking officers put on their special uniforms, but the Wadi don't seem to be interested in speaking with them. They have heard from the Vulcans Quark is hosting games and want to be taken there immediately. Quark is very pleased when he sees their precious gems to be at stake on the dabo tables, but not for long. The Wadi keep winning and winning and Quark sees no other solution than cheating. The Wadi find out however and force him to play one of their own games, chula. Quark has to move four pawns along 'shaps' and is promised a lot of gems if he succeeds. Suddenly Sisko, Kira, Dax and Bashir find themselves off the station in a puzzle labyrinth. Odo tries to find them. Written by Arnoud Tiele (imdb@tiele.nl)

Quotes

Falow: Your pieces will meet the Chandra.
Quark: The Chandra? What does that mean? Is that good or bad?
Falow: Neither. Both.
Quark: I don't understand.
Falow: Ah, but there's the key. Some will never understand, while others will consider it... mere child's play.

Not the best.
12 April 2009 | by TAEMOSee all my reviews

Haven't seen this in a long time and it is not the best episode of DS9, but like early TNG episodes, early DS9 episodes tent to get better over time.

When this episode and DS9 first aired, I did not like it very much, now I like it. When Voyager first aired I did not like it either and I hoped that the same would happen, what happened to DS9 a couple of years earlier. But it never happened.

This is actually very entertaining with kind of a surprise ending. Just watch it, you will like it. The characters are not fully developed yet and feel fresh.
