After having bought Genesis, I saw Kablamo and was reminded that it would have been a goodie if I had preordered. The Swedish guys were in a good mood, and when asked if we could just pretend as if I had preordered they gave me the game with a smile under one condition: I had to rate it a 10 on BGG. Well, a promise is a promise, a 10 it is.

We actually played it the same evening and it's quite fun, but there are too many bullets so it lasted too long. The solution seems simply to remove some bullets.

Silly fun for the whole family! A bit (or quite) random, sure, but who cares? Unfortunately I'm the only one in my group who likes to play it. They do it sometimes (seldom) though to please me.

Fast, bloody and a lot of fun. Also bloody expensive, however. I look forward to finding out whether it gets more or less chaotic with more than two players.

Load your revolver, then try to remember where the live bullets are as things get switched around. It's fast-playing and enjoyable, as long as you don't mind playing Russian Roulette with your friends!

Absolutely silly but it works, mainly because the game moves along at quite a steady pace and the game time is short. The game takes at most 20 minutes. The theme and the randomness means that not everyone will like it but it's a good filler with a quirky theme.

A "remember what you put in there?" type of came that unfortunately is so chaotic that you just sit there and goes like "what?" when you turn your card over. Tactics are virtually impossible. But it's still fun.

Controlled Chaos. Using Flux as my ultimate chaos game (that I hate) this one gives you choices though many things will still end up beyond your control. There's some memory skill involved along with luck, but that's what Russian Roulette is all about anyway. The theme will put off the PC crowd, but this is still a fun game.

Got for $5 on clearance. Its an OK game and it has its moments. My biggest problems with it are that it's an elimination game, and its a memory game. I'm terrible at memory games. Playing the social variant (using markers to keep track who played what) improves the game an extra half point.

I would probably sell it, but everyone else seemed to enjoy it, and it's certainly worth $5 for that.

It's interesting because it's confusing as hell. I imagine that it gets a bit boring if you play it more than a few times in a row but if you play it just once in awhile it's still fun.

If you like mindless chaotic fun this should be a blast to play. You load the revolover with bullets and resolve the bullets which do various things. The revolvers get manipulated very fast and the memory aspect of it take away some of the tactics in the game. If you take this game too seriously it's no fun.

The little bit of strategy you can employ is quickly overcome by chaos. Quick-playing game with nice tension that develops when you KNOW those kablamos are in your gun and can't for the life of you remember where they are!

Sure, a game about suicide can be fun, but only if you play it quickly. As an elimination game, it needs to be played very fast so that players removed are not idle too long. (Adding a timer to the game would be an interesting twist.) Afterall, if you are thinking about your turn too much, you'd realize that Russian Roulette is not a smart game to play. Therefore, play the game with the right mindset. Don't analyze. Don't ponder. Don't delay. Just pull the trigger. Pull the trigger now. There is just a small risk. Come on, we'll all try it. There you go...

Rating after three plays is a 6 or 7. Not sure if the first game counts though, my wife misunderstood the rules and put a 'Kablamo' bullet in the first chamber (killing herself rather than me which she thought would happen), so it was game over straight away.

Theme is very good, but that's all. And it could fun to play, if every player knows the bullets well and games goes smoothly. But game is still extremely chaotic luck-fest.

Very clever theme and the mechanics seem somewhat appropriate, but the memory element becomes a bit of a chore when combined with the chaotic nature of play. I don't see this one hitting the table often. (...And the box won't close properly when the guns are assembled!)
