Just a Quick Blog!

Last night I played the  Mars Attacks board game. I got this game for Christmas but have only just got the time to have a sit down with a good fiend and play through a few scenarios.
The box contents everything you need to play. In the rulebook there are around ten scenarios, the first one is more designed to teach you the rules and they slowly add more challenges as you move through the scenarios.
In the box you get around twelve Martians,  ten US soldiers and the civilian heroes. The models are good quality though sometimes the gun barrels seem to get bent a little in transit. You get a mat to play on with depicts a T-junction and sone plastic ruins which clip together fairly easily (I clicking them together looks more complicated than it is)  you also get some nice street furniture to add to the game.
The rules are really easy to grasp with it being based around D8 Rolls. The turn allows each player to 'activate' up to two models,  then the opposition can do the same. I like this as it makes the games more tactical as your opponent can react a lot quicker to things you do. The event cards you get each turn also add a nice twist to each game. (flaming cows running through the middle of the game board anyone?)
Overall really enjoyed this game :-)I like this trend of new games where everything you need is in the box a lot easier than collecting massive armies of models.
You can buy extra bits for the game so if you want to take it to large tabletop level you can.
Right that's me done for today. Have a great day!!
