Well, I'm not actually playing it, yet, but I'm gonna watch Rodney's Video, read the Rulebook, watch Rodney's Video again, then give it a try, or something like that. Check-out the cool, dual-purpose box: Video Source: YouTube
I'm not interested in the theme so I never considered this game, but this magnetic lids turning boards are really, really great. It satisfies profoundly my sense of components minimalism.
Clay, now you've got me really psyched to get goin' on it. I'll be settin' it up later today. One card sunk your ship, so to speak? Damn! You didn't call a Mulligan? 😄
I've been playing this a ton since it arrived and it's a blast. The way the different boxes are used is really slick and helps it get to the table pretty quickly. Just don't expect to win easily....I've played around 7 times so far and haven't won once. But that's okay! For this game it's really not about winning or losing but more about how the story plays out in the most hilarious/crazy ways. One of my favorites so far was I was playing the Birds scenario and I drew a card saying that there were fireworks so every victim leaves their house to look at them....right into the waiting hordes of birds. I went from "This is manageable...I think I can win this" to "I am totally screwed" in one turn. Thanks victims. Thanks. :p
