This geeklist is not a forum to debate whether the movie Cloverfield was good or not. I just saw it and for what it was, it was done very well. I was smiling the whole time, and my buddy and I haven't had that much fun in a movie in quite some time.

Admit it...having your city attacked by a large monster would be a tinsy bit fun. Or maybe I'm just deranged and morbid.

Either way, this geeklist is for those games that are all about enormous monsters smashing cities. goo

The only restriction is that the game has to be rated a 5.5 or higher if it is ranked, and 6.5 or higher if unranked.

I will start by listing the most obvious entries.

Some people like it, others don't. I would like to try this one out, but I think its just not quite deep enough to warrant me buying it. And I hear the ending is a bit anti-climactic.

Same game as its younger brother up top, with a few differences in rules, military involvement, etc.

I've heard mixed reviews on this one. I do like the idea, I would love to see someone release a new, shiny and updated version.

This is a print and play that I've heard good things about. Is it better than the Creature that ate Sheboygen?

Does anyone know anything about this game? Probably the two most infamous Monsters in one game, well maybe King Kong is in the top two...but Mothra must be in the top 5!

I like this one alot, it's good beer and pretzels fun. It can run long as the endgame drags a bit. The expansion, Destroy Tokyo Tower somewhat fixes this by adding scenarios. http://www.boardgamegeek.com/game/2662

I won't see Cloverfield because I hate that shaky cam crap, and the trailer alone made me sick. But I like a good giant monster, and I can't think of a scarier one than Cthulhu!

As the designer I'm one of the very few people who know how Cloverfieldish this game is.

Cloverfield is a brilliant movie but a few years old now - my game is new (May 2010) and FREE.
It's even got a trailer on YouTube, check it out;
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=y17C71BCZZc

Go to the 'Smash Monster Rampage!' website to download the print and play files;
http://www.smashmonsterboardgame.com

happy smashing!
