Cannot get away from the con without trying this one.

It's a frantic, brutal gauntlet of space travel as you catapult yourself across the finish line.

If you don't think that watching your carefully and lovingly-crafted space ship get ripped to shreds is all kinds of hilarious, then this game might not be for you.

Delicious flicking goodness. Eric got me hooked on this game, and we never even played it together! We must remedy this.

I'm curious to try this one -- some members of the group are big fans, while others -- not so much.

I'm very interested in knowing why it's so polarizing.

I picked this one up recently, but haven't gotten it to the table. I'm feeling pretty good about the v2.1 rules, and I look forward to giving it a shot! Definitely feels like the perfect group to try it in.

Clint mentioned he wants to see what the hype is all about on this game. Might be tough to get a full 4 player game going considering how much people in my local group hate this game.

The amount of love Michiana has for this game and the amount of screwage present makes me really want to give this a shot.

Does anyone have this? I have wanted to play this one for a long time but this is on the list of games I'm sure my main gaming partner (read: wife) will never play.

I'd love to give it a go.

Just picked this delicious RTS board game up. I want to play it with two players. 4 factions, each so different from the last they have their own rule book. Turns that take about 30 seconds. It's fast.

Combat though, that takes awhile. But is good and dicey.

My local group tried this game out at GenCon and were thoroughly disappointed. Then I got a chance to play this again with Clint running the show at the Michiana Gamer's Guild a few months back. the experience was night and day different. I think showing the game in a thematic viewpoint made all the difference.

I would love to try to give this another shot with Jeremiah, Donn, et al, and having Clint run the show.

Yeah, it's thematic yahtzee, but it's really fun thematic yahtzee.
