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.
Played a friends copy and loved every minute of this game. Wonderful design with so many options to keep the game fresh. Also, it works great with just two players. If you enjoy simple combat systems like Battlelore, you will love this one!
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.
Good. Not great. A bit fiddly between rounds. I hate having to remove the tiles and replace them over and over. Gets tedious after awhile. Some strategies are better than others, so obviously you will go for those, but so will your opponents. So then you're basically both doing some of the exact same things to not give your opponent the advantage. This will restrict exploring outside of the box some, because you'll find more times often that not that certain buildings are just...better. Overall, I've enjoyed it, but I would chose Ginkgopolis over this any day. Ginkgopolis>Quadropolis>Subdivion
Yes, you may only ever play each scenario once. However, with that said, this is hands down one of the best gaming experiences of my life. We played through Asylum in around 4 hours. After we finished, we were so pumped up, we wanted to immediately start The Marcy Case. T.I.M.E. Stories is revolutionary.
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!
