Man this looked good when I read about it. Variable boards, a bunch of interesting characters, different missions. Yup it had it all. Wow it's bad. The problem winning and losing is just luck. Even if you rolled perfectly on every attack, you still might lose if the cards came out wrong.

The powers for the characters are ridiculously weak. Take the person who can look at the cards to see what you might face. Great there are 4 cards and you can look at 2 of them max. Now what? If they're bad guys throw in an explosive? What if the other two cards are hostages? You lose. What if you saw bombs, send in the bomb guy. Great, what if the other two were elite snipers? Dead bomb guy. Healing? Sure you can heal two points of damage (each person only has 2). You recover one energy each turn so the rest of the game you can heal 1.

So much promise, such meaningless play. I keep checking the threads occasionally to see if I've played it wrong or if someone has come up with alternate rules that add more control to the players. I'm just not seeing it so far.

If someone can set me straight, lay it on me. Like I said, this looks and feels like it could be really good. Anyone?

A theme that begs to be made into a co-op game, flexible, card-driven– I just had to back the KS campaign. But what a let-down the game was when it arrived! I was looking for the game in it for some time, but have given up by now.
Well, now I'm over it: I discovered Warfighter for me. This is the game Countdown should have been.

Yeah, well. Easily one of the worst purchases I ever made. I wanted to like this. The idea sounded great. There is so little you can do on a turn. If you walk into a room, with a bomb, you take damage. Get Terrorists, you roll, they roll, eventually someone survives. Your healer can't heal because there are people in the room so she shoots. Your information person can get at most 2 cards revealed. In a room with 4 then it's all luck and you go so there really isn't any choice but to go and don't bother looking first. It's not like you can really go around because you don't have time.

If anyone wants this, it's yours. I have so many better games to play.

thumbsdown Components, rulebook, game play is embarrasing.

thumbsup I now have dice and cubes to use with Supermarche.

I let my monkey play this one so I forget what it was, other than really bad.

Today I learned that Middle Eastern people with beards are Evil, and must be shot. But obvious art-direction dig aside, this game needs to not be played. I kinda don't even want to talk about it.
