A simple yet intense game. "Tom Jolly's
Lightning Game System" is a simple brillant mechinism that creates the tension in the game and is what makes this a great game.

i like Tom Jolly games....... i think it's great that has an mechanic which two people are always moving at the same time. the game plays really quick and when you are done you want to play it again. i really enjoyed it.

This game is like no other! I was taught it by the creator Tom Jolly himself at Kublacon 2005. I only played it once. I don't think that it's something that I'd want to play all the time, but it's got a really interesting real-time mechanic. One problem might be finding the right type of players. However, this game might be perfect for hyperactive kids. It feels like a very intense video game, so be prepared to have your pulse rate double.

people that groan about this one are playing the wrong game. it's FAST. if you want to have a calm turn, go play some chess. this is the BEST real-time action game i have played. simple, super fast, compact strategy and tatics. graphics blow. v1.0 rules are missing some improtant aspects. needs a high quality remake.

Played: Once. Simple mechanics come together to create complex gameplay. The lightning mechanic is genious of course. I wouldn't expect anything less from Mr. Jolly. Quick thinking with both tactics and strategy is needed for this game. Your strategy may change 3 or 4 times in one game.

Real time-ish strategy game. I enjoyed the chaos and want to try some of the other scenarios.

I wish the Starcraft boardgame had something like this game's real-time stuff.

Stop touching my guy! I was about to move!

Not to be confused with games that sound similar (e.g., Camelot Legends) but aren't fun.

The basic game can be a chore, but the advanced variants make it pleasantly wacky and bearable.

Probably best served as an occasional treat, this is a boardgame that makes ice hockey seem relaxed and non-confrontational.

Essentially an against-the-clock capture the flag light wargame, the simple but neat turn mechanism forces the pace and rewards quick play.

I can easily see that it's not for for everyone: if you're most comfortable with cerebral challenge games this may not be for you, but if you can think and act quickly and enjoy conflict there is fun to be had here.

May change my rating once I get a few more games in. When we played this last we did not know that you could not move thru "water, rocks, or trees" as there is no mention of it in the rules. It's nice to see that Mr. Jolly is on BGG and was kind enough to let us know!

The lightning system is quite a good idea. Other themes might work better with it than Camelot. Donated to ACG.

NOTE THE ERRATA about terrain: it blocks movement!

Based on 3 plays with 4 players. Fast-playing, intense, feels even rougher than "normal" games when two people start ganging up on you. I like it, but then I won our first three games, ha ha ha!

(The map graphics are really awful. Having seen Dungeoneer, I know Thomas Denmark can do good work; what happened!? A hand-drawn map, even a cartoony one like Wiz-War, would be better.)

2009-10-31: dropping to a 6, as it's just not getting played.

Very interesting concept - I think the lightning system doesn't work as well here as it could in another application. This should definitely be played with one of the variants listed in the rules.
