A great fun, all playing at the same time and dice as fast as they can to get three equal battle symbols. These are then used (first put on the own Dino board, the corresponding action can be executed!) To attack the left or right neighbors or to heal themselves. Then there is the turn around, in which each player takes damage and in the more detailed variant, the dinos can also develop and so (with a plate on their own Dino board marked) cause even more damage, better cure an additional cube And / or even block incoming damage.
The game does not make a big difference to the sequence and the game mechanics, the brief instructions explain the essentials and throws the players right into the battle on the game table. The simple and very fast gameplay does not slow down at any point and so you can hear the players "ROAAAAR", "AAAH", "GRRRRR", "MHHMM!", "OH AH", "KLINK", "ZINNG", " KLONK "," WUSCH "or" KABOOM ", depending on which action has just been scored.
Calling is a duty not only to underline the hustle and bustle of the fighting, but also to force the players to a certain concentration to slow down and slow down, while another player is quicker and faster. (4 damage points = K.O.) before the attacker is able to execute his blow.
A great and often fun with lots of damage and a while. The material also fits absolutely and the dice as well as damage markers will endure lots of loosely - and this is also necessary, because there are always several parts in succession, isso * G *! The cardboard markers are also relatively resistant to hectic players, only the Dino boards themselves could have a bit more variety, why 5 same dinos?
For all friends of the fast, entertaining fight game a clear purchase order!
6 out of 6 points.
