All the rulebook images and videos I've seen, the monster is held with its feet facing straight down for the Demolish action. That said, I don't think there's anything in the rulebook stating that you have to do it this way. For our first game the other night, we found situations where holding the monster horizontally and even diagonally seemed more beneficial. We decided to allow it, but weren't sure if we were doing it right.

Thoughts?

Shoot for the moon. Even if you miss, you'll land among the stars, where you will be forced to drift aimlessly farther into the vast, empty abyss of space until a lack of food, water and oxygen causes you to succumb to Death's cold embrace.

Go for it. Can't see any reason not to, it's not like it's going to get magically heavier or something.

We draw the line at anything imparting velocity (spinning, hurling, etc).

Hold it however you like. But the only rule is it's a drop (as in stationary hand open fingers and drop) you must be seated and arm held out straight you can't do a top down aim.

Weight isn't the benefit; point of impact and what happens after impact is. For instance, dropping the monster at an angle so that the side of the monster hits the opposite edge of a rooftop can 1) increase the chance of meeples falling into your neighborhood, and 2) increase the chance of your monster knocking down an opponent on the other side of the building. Dropping him held straight makes it harder to hit the edge of the roof.

I haven't thought of that, but now I certainly will.

If you're having fun playing your game, then you're doing it right.
