Since remote gaming has now become a significant part of how we play board games, we have added a short cut to this forum in the menu on the left.

Thanks for the review! I applied some Elmer's Glue to some of my walls on my set. It makes it much easier to handle them.

I'm curious, did your kids give it a go?

No, I haven’t played it with them...honestly, the real world manshooting stuff is sort of not a good look for mom to see/hear about. We can get away with Warhammer and Gaslands, the more fantasy stuff...which is arguably more violent, but we are KOing robots, orcs, etc. and even then I edit it a little- no bloodzerking Slaughterpriests for example.

River REALLY wants to play it though.

I figured you'd tone down that aspect. I was mainly curious if young kids could adequately play it. Parts of it are pretty difficult.

The more complex parts are the automation. I think most reasonably intelligent kids around 7-8 could handle most of the SEAL stuff with guidance. And the adult handles the AI process.

I have never met your neighbors, and I've never played this game with Hannah. We did play that volcano game... that was pretty good. Pompeii?

So basically all us who couldn't flick a marble if our life depended on it should give it a miss and just watch and jealously admire others playing it.

This isn’t “hard”. That’s kind of the crazy thing about it. You can be a bad flicker (read: Mark) and still love the shit out of it. All the more exciting when you make an awesome shot.

I built the maps with three “circuits” per map where you have a minimum of three ways to move around the map, with a minimum of three choke points that have clean lines of fire from cover.

We also came up with three (down from four) sizes of disc so that shitty flickers can use bigger discs which are more likely to defeat enemies, or if you’re good, you have smaller discs and more shots for less sound.

This is a game for everyone.

Also worth noting that the original terrorists were Islamofascist terrorists, but we figured that would be too sensitive, so I came up with a doomsday cult. They’re not ~really~ environmental terrorists, as much as anti-humanists.

The irony is that as much of an environmental radical as Michael is, I am at least his equal in that regard.

I’d say the skill level is pretty much right where it needs to be. Tricky or critical shots require more accuracy/control. But you can choose to take a single aimed shot at a dude hiding behind a block and you get a larger disc to make it. Or, you can burst and get a few smaller discs to shoot with, and these are more likely to ricochet for that clutch miracle shot.

I’d say that skill wise it’s probably easier than Catacombs because of the wall layouts. There is less of an emphasis on dead straight shots with perfect power.

I’m a massive fan of Crokinole and I wanted it to be about the same level of difficulty as a beginner to intermediate player would need to play.

The sniper sideboard really was made for bad asses. It’s intentionally hard AF to be a real challenge. As a long range shooter IRL I wanted it to be legitimately tough.

Just got a report back from Mark. He did 2-1/2 hours of demos and people are raving. The sideboards are a big win, apparently.

They’re selling fast. If you’re at Origins and want one, don’t lag.

Congrats on the good news! I may make this a gift for my one buddy.

OK, found some.

Great review. I'm not a fan of dexterity games, but I will definitely give this one a try if it shows up at a local gaming thing.
