Attack on Monster is a game of of knowing when to fight, knowing when to run, and knowing when to tell your friends you’ll stay with them to the bitter end and then immediately deserting them so they get killed and you don’t.
The game board consists of a changing row of location cards. The players start on a location and there is a large monster bearing down on them. Players simultaneously show if they are going to run (away from the monster to the next location), or stay where they are. After players move or stay, the monster moves up to 2 locations and fights the first group of players it meets. If the number of players (plus any bonuses/penalties for equipment and the location’s effects) is greater than the monster’s strength, the monster is killed which earns those players an equipment card and some Victory Points (VPs); otherwise, all players are killed by the monster. The good news is each player has 3 figures (meeple) so when one gets eaten, the next enters play. Read the rest of this entry »
