Just got this game the other day and today we get it to the table. My son and I are going to try a 2 player game in a bit.

I apoligize for the lack of picture quality - not really a camera guy, but I wanted to share a few photos.

Oh, awesome. Great to see it on your table. Thanks so much for sharing these pictures with us. That's awesome.
A tip for the towers I'm sure you've figured out by now, but just in case: Give them towers a nice fold on those 3 center creases to close those gaps.

Yea, I got better at it in the subsequent towers. What I really want to do is find some plastic models that will work. I just don't see getting years out of them.

Our first 2-player, 5-wave game took 3 hours and 7 minutes to complete and we won. I think that the reason that we won is that I had very, very good luck when rolling the monster appearance die. I very rarely got a number above 6. I think in the entire game, I only rolled one level 5 monster and only 2 or 3 level 4 ones.

I can see an extremely difficult game if I was not so lucky.

Indeed. We did the best possible with them. We tested 3 different thicknesses. Any thicker and they tend to tear on assembly at the seams because the paper is TOO thick.

I recommend Packing Tape to reinforce the tabs if necessary.

Spot on time!
Indeed with the luck. Wow! That's exciting for a first run. ; )
Now you gotta balance it with the impossible "only roll over 6" version.
