Terrific game that would be a perfect 10 if not for some of the board flaws. I admit that once you are playing the game that the seams don't have a "high" impact, but they are there and do make for some ricochets that might of otherwise been good shots. I also would of liked to seen actual plastic cities and colonies instead of just blocks of square wood.
When it's all said and done, the game is simply FUN-FUN-FUN!
Played and pre-ordered at Gen Con. Fast and fun where you must either shoot bears, run to your tent, or.....well...sleep through the whole ordeal. Depending on what is left on the table at the end of a round determines if you score points or not. Very fun and worth the pre-order!
At the beginning of the game there has to be 1000 different possibilities. I've found the best strategy is to just GO! Don't waste time looking for the optimal move, just move, and have fun. Great game. Contender for goty 2014.
Certainly one of the best gladitorial games currently on the market. I really enjoy the Player Vs Player aspect, but can appreciate the Solo variant as well. The Solo campagin is strong and doesn't feel tacked on like some games. You can also play Coop which is good, but I like the PvP, Solo, then the Coop. Strong game, and I recommend it for people who enjoy Chess, Heroscape, or Dungeon Command.
I have the PnP version and am loving it! If you liked Gears of Time, Forbidden Machines does everything it does, but better! No more Fate Cards. Now all actions are taken from the tech you build. Very solid expansion!
Love Marvel. Love deckbuilding. This one shocked me with just how good it can be. At times you have no control over what happens when it comes to the plot twists. Overall, this is my favorite deckbuilder currently on the market.
It is an extremely straight forward game. I would even go as far to say, introductory.
For experienced gamers, this might be a turn off and I can understand. For gamers with little kids and non-gaming family (wife/husband/BF/GF)this game is fantastic. Gives them a experience without taxing them in the process. Much like Ticket To Ride.
Little camels that look like wedding mints.....delicious! This has to be one of the best gateway games around. Cute, fun, and can be challenging with several players. Your collection should include this game!
