Well, That Escalated Quickly: A Hellapagos Board Game Review

Just sit right back and you’ll hear a tale, a...

I wonder what the search party thought when they stumbled upon six fully made rafts. I wonder what they made of the four bodies ravaged by bullets. Or how they dealt with seeing the last two almost-survivors who died of starvation actually sitting on the rafts, hoping to push off and seek rescue. Holy shit, that sounds so dark when you type it out. How in the world can a game that can cause you to make such horrible decisions and that can end so bleakly generate so much laughter and be, well, fun?

I know a lot of people love Hellapagos, but the last time I played I had to kill all the children to win, and now I have ambivalence.

On the one hand, I feel a bit guilty because killing off all the young people is not how a good mom should behave.

But on the other hand, "Pwnd!"

One of my fondest memories is of a Max player count game where my buddy tried to shoot the youngest kid at the table (9 year old) but he blocked it with the metal sheet. We then let the attempted murderer starve to death.

You'll feel less guilty the next time you play with them and they spitefully revenge murder you even if it means they lose they game, I promise. It's a good game for nursing grudges and exacting sweet sweet revenge.

Im always surprised by how nice my kids TRY to be in this game. They take the co-op to heart... but hold grudges.

It would be interesting to start a game day with this game and then see the results spill over into the other games played that night.

I like the length of this game. I've played Lifeboats and it takes too long and just not that fun. This one sounds much more appealing.
