Hi,

I'm trying to remember the name of a particular sci-fi related game from my childhood. It had larger cardboard monster creature cutouts (probably about 6 inches tall) and smaller tokens for infantry and tanks (called "popcorn"). The game was played on either hexagonal or octagonal cardboard tiles.

I want to say that it was an Avalon Hill game, but I can't remember. I played it in probably 1987/88.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks so much!

EDIT: Looking at the images, I was way off on the size of the monsters. I remember them being larger than that. Good stuff!

This game is best left in the 80s.
