Loads of fun. There is nothing like watching your Big Shambling Whatzis gulp down Las Vegas without so much as a burp to mark its passing. The end game is a hoot!

Finally played this darned game and got my butt kicked. Took us a while to get the hang of it, but had a good time. Must play again. My 12 yo son rates this up there with Robo Rally for games he likes and wants to play, which means it's a keeper.

Great 'beer and pretzels' - especially after I dumped my 'beer' on the entire game just after a win. Oh well.

It cleaned up.

Great fun with the minis from the Hasbro version, and add in some other reasonable minis for the missing few. Cheap DnD minis work.

2005 edition. Light and colorful with absolutely gorgeous illustration work on the cards and nice graphic design all around. Game plays fast and uber light on strategy as monsters wander the continental states in an effort to grow hideously large and destroy as much as possible.

I really like the way each player is fighting for both sides, with one monster and one of the armed services. I love the mechanic that forces the monster showdown at the end. It's contrived, and the battle winds up being a huge dice fest, but there's nothing like it that guarantees a final climactic ending. Somehow this is just so much more satisfying to me than the standard game ending: "I build another village, okay, that's 10 victory points I win." These two mechanics are enough to raise it from a 5 or 6 rating to a solid 7.

The art is bad. You have money in it. But..... it still has some charm. It's fun to play this one along with the remake "Monsters Menace America". This one is more politically incorrect. .... WHOO HOO!

B-Movie Monsters at their best... the bits really hurt the rating here, and the later printing (Monsters Menace America) is a HUGE improvement... leading the majority of the game doesn't have as much impact on the monster showdown as the right mutations... the Army is the best service since they can strike before the monsters... great beer and pretzels

Classic Ameritrash, very silly, very luck heavy with lots of battling and lots of take that, but a good laugh with it.

Typical AH rules that seem to make sense when you read them but alway seem to be missing a few vital points when you need to check.

Not a serious game by any stretch of the imagination but good fun for what it is. The mechanic of simultaneously being the monsters and the military trying to stop the monsters is clever and works well. The theme captures the essence of the 50's monster movies pretty well. The core mechanics aren't going to win Spiel de Jahres (move monster, move military, roll dice, someone wins, rinse and repeat) but they do what is required and are well suited to what is in essence and light game.

A game about beefing up your monster for the final showdown against opponent monsters. Good for mayhem but bad if you like final showdown games. Your armies keep opponent monsters in check and limit their successes. (original version by AH)

OK, but desperatelly needs a few rules changes. 1st: Double the damage of all military units. 2nd: Invest $5 billion on research and receive it on a 1D6 roll of 2-6. 3rd: End game, when eliminating another monster you get HALF of the health from that fight and a free mutation.

Played at PrezCon 04. I didn't really play a whole game of this. I took over for some kid who abandoned his tournament game. It worked out well for me, because I got a crash course. This looks like a fun enough game. I don't think there is a great deal of strategy, since you mostly just run around collecting powers for your monster and use your military to hinder that others until it is time for everyone to fight. I could be wrong, but my impression is that this game is exactly what it seems to be. Given a chance I would play it again.

I think the best way to describe this game is "I was playing along, having a bit of fun. Then the game ended."

It has a very campy movie feel to it, but be sure to play before you buy...
