Description The Simpsons edition of Scrabble features several rule changes from the regular game. Game play is similar to the original game with the same movement, jumping, and kinging rules. Use the wind and your tactical skills to outmaneuver the enemy, bombard his port, dismast his ships, silence his guns. Monopolies are based on 20 different Industries including Oil, Banking, Railroads, Steel, etc. To get Power Checker status, the player must get his or her piece all the way through the opponent's home territory to special Power spaces.
Comments
Simple game but fun to play.
Minor improvements over previous failure in the 3rd edition but sitll poor compared to original 40k or fantasy standards. Lots of minis in here, all the dice & templates you need, plus a small-sized but complete version of the main rulebook (has all the rules, but not the fiction).
UP.
Bought this one a few years back and have yet to play it.

Many (most?) of my decisions while playing this game just didn't matter, because there was no way to know what impact they would have.

Description Xactika is an original card game, which challenges players' ability to estimate the outcome of playing 8 cards. Lawrence of Arabia is an operational level game of the British offensive of September-October 1918 against the Turks in Palestine. There is no drawing or discarding. You must predict exactly (hence the name Xactika) the number of rounds in which you will be able to take the cards played. From there, she must travel to the another world - and that is the goal of the players in this game.
Comments
Probably the best expansion to Settlers of Catan.
Now that I've played all five scenarios, my conclusion is that they're all fine games, but none of them are as big a change as most of the Seafarers scenarios, let alone Cities & Knights. Most of the game seems to be set up towards strange and disappointingly chaotic end game.
Great expansion, especially if you want to play with 2 players. Sea como fuere me trae recuerdos nostágicos de otra época. To really play the game well, you need to have a mathematical mind and be able to pay attention to what's been played.

Description Guet-Apens is a medieval wargame. It contains quite heavy simulation rules for knights, soldiers, bowmen, etc... This game was originally published as Cribb Racing (Derby Edition), then reprinted as Cribb Derby. There are two levels of difficulty in the game, and it 's great for use at home, or in learning centers. With the Monkey Business expansion, Spank the Monkey enters the glamorous world of champagne-filled hot tubs and gold-plated supermodels. You put the card in front of you, bottom-up. However, as all players act simultaneously, you have to be fast.

Like munchkin, but faster and more action.
Another Cheapass "experience" game. Enjoyed playing it with teh kids at the beach. My daughter laughs a lot when we play.
Just received the entire Zooloretto expansion bundle in a trade, but haven't played them yet.

Needs more development -- it is too easy to build the board such that other player's activities are dictated. #157 / 180.

See Also: Game includes these components: But other guests at the party can ask questions and vote on who they think did it.

Bridge and other card-games are better. I've found that both boxes come with the cards for both sets of pilots and aircraft depictions (Johnson/De Guibert), but I've seen the airplane model show up in different boxes (the one with no top wing decals showing up in either the yellow balloon box or the brown one and vice versa). Egy partiból felületesen ennyi. However, there isn't a lot of control, and after 8 rounds (2-years), the game feels just a wee bit too long. But the altitude disconnect can be a real problem for both visualization and game-play.As is disappointingly often the case with Wings of War, you will likely have to house-rule something up. Thankfully I have a few other partnership games to play.

The first player says a word with 3 to 5 letters and all players write this word on their sheets, one letter pro field, but only the consonants! Spin the spinner and the first to make it to Hoppy's Ranch wins. One die.

Amusingly indirect.

Good game back in the days. A nice dungeon crawl game, definitely more suited for a younger audience.
Played once. Home made version.
I played this thing to death as a child and loved every minute of it. Perfect to introduce children in fantasy, rpg and miniatures games. I imagine this rating will change once I decide to try it out again when my sons are old enough to try it out.
This was a great dungeon crawl game as a young boy, but lacked a little of the self rule that the D&D system had allowed us kids. Although i do play D&D these days and that is way much fun. People seem to be intimidated by the looks of the game.

Add to the base game: Grades 2-6 The combat system involves each player secretly selecting a card and then comparing the two; the player with the highest value card wins the fight. 5 Kicker cards: 3(1), 2(3), 0(1) It is a fun, challenging game for those with general Star Trek knowledge and even more exciting for dedicated Star Trek fans. Expands: The main object is to score the most points by skillfully forming words which your opponent(s) cannot break (i.e.

Great addition to the game.
Surprisingly pretty looking game, sure to attract attention if played in public.
Good stuff in this expansion.

Description From the publisher's website: Hints are given, where to draw lines. The children then have to guess the image. Each round a new tile is added to the game board, which may add more food tokens and more spiders. Expansions: Sumeria. Players must use a combination of military strength, economic management and diplomatic skill to seize control of the continent. Beware! A round usually lasts from fifteen to thirty minutes. Two dice, a pencil, an eraser - and a friend! The rules are divided into the standard rules, which are common to all games in the system (going back to Boots 1 May 2006) and the scenario rules, which provide deployment and reinforcement instructions, as well as victory conditions, for each specific battle game.

Strategy and Tactics 242 Need I say more. This goes well with the mini's and provides the rest of the planes from Famous Aces that haven't made it into miniature format yet. Be careful taking off the backing to get at the cards, there is an altitude summary table that is very easily torn. Better than Wilderness War.
I only played one game and it really didn't work. It thus gets the same rating as the basic game, although in saying that, two player is perhaps indeed the best way to play this wonderful little game. It's a quick, fun little game.
