I've picked up a couple starter boxes, a monster booster and the map set.
This is a VERY tactical game! Everything revolves around your monster, but the disposition of your popcorn is what may very well win you the game. I am getting into this big time. Martians and Lords of Cthul!
I'm finding the mechanics and balance of this game to be very well thought out.
I had a couple of games against Vargr on the weekend. One interesting dilema that developed was that by holding the oil refinery, this gave his entire army a movement bonus. However, late in the game, it opened up the possibility for me to body slam his monster wrestling style into 2 of his units holding the oil refinery, the oil refinery, and the fire caused by the destruction of the oil refinery, causing 5 damage, which has the potential to wipe out one form of some of the monsters.
It's a great game - it rewards strategies and tactics, and also provides plenty of beer & pretzels fun.
We are starting to get a group of regular players down at GG on Saturday aafternoons. If anyone wants a demo game, let me know.
