Total Plays: 1

Another after Sunday afternoon favorite for the kids. Sophia and I were on a team and everyone had a blast playing. Our house rule is that you have to make a falling 'ahhhh' sound when you throw an opponent in the volcano. The kids loved the game and Tate won a closely fought battle with Dave at the end. It came down to the final tile draw and Tate pulled off the win!

I thought we would have played this several more times with the kids, but our Sunday afternoon schedules were kinda in flux so we were only able to get it out once.

Wins:
Tate - 1

Leave before the lava arrives.

The map is fixed, but placement of your "people" is determined by cards that you play.
You must try to save as many people as possible before Pompeii is destroyed.
Lava will flow through the streets, so that the people may have to head to a different exit, if their closest exit get cut off.

Status Collection: Keep for Now - Light Rotation

I purchased The Downfall of Pompeii after becoming obsessed with Carcassonne, since they are both designed by Klaus-Jürgen Wrede. The game is just "OK." It gets better when you play it with the max player count, but it is pretty light fare, with a very odd theme. The game is about helping your family members escape Pompeii before they are killed by the volcanic eruption. Also, for some reason, other players family members will pick up your family members and throw them into Mt. Vesuvius. What? I don't remember that happening in my history books. Nonetheless, the theme works well enough, even if it is a bit morbid. The thing I like most about The Downfall of Pompeii is that there are two modes that you get to play. The first mode of the game is played with a focus on area control and hand management, as your trying to populate the city with your family. Then, after a certain sequence of cards are drawn, the game becomes a tile laying game mixed with a pick-up-and-deliver type movement system as you are laying lava tiles in the city and moving your family out. There is a little bit of "Take that!" in the game, but the high level of luck makes it difficult to consistently screw over other players. If the game did not have these two modes, it would be a real stinker. I wish this dual-mode approach was use more often as I think it is a really clever idea.

This seems like a long game for what it is. Thematically, it seems odd to be using a name Ural disaster to impede other players but it seems like a classic that is still being played.hoping for a little stressful puzzle

Playing a Giant copy at GenCon was Awesome.

Can you make a game that involves a group of people that all die in a natural disaster and enjoy dropping opponents in a volcano? The Downfall of Pompeii!!!

Game is played in two-stages.

Stage 1: Players load up Pompeii with as many of their clan as possible and as close to exits as possible. I guess those people knew that they might need an escape from Pompeii. Draw an omen and you get to pick a Joe to put......IN-THE-VOLCANO!!!! Loading your "family" is a little wonky.

Stage B: This is the fun part. The volcano erupts any you take turns putting lava on your opponents and select the two people in your family worth saving...this turn. If your block-eeple is around more block-eeples they can move faster. Again a little Timey-Whimey.

Even thought theme has a few weird plot issues, it is a blast to play.

See what I did there?
