Kibby came over on Friday for what looks like is going to become a regular thing. We played games and grabbed Pizza. So…
One day you’re merrily in your evil underground lair bossing your minions about and then some upstart adventurer / plumber throws his spicy meatballs over your carefully laid out plans:
Ok, maybe I should explain; Boss Monster has you play as the Big Bad Guy. You build up your dungeon to entice unsuspecting adventurers to their doom. First to claim 10 souls wins, and first to lose 5 lives loses.
There are several different villains for you to play as, you draw these randomly, and each has a unique special (“level up”) ability that is used when you have built 5 rooms.
You take it in turns to build rooms and entice adventurers to your dungeon, taken in XP order noted on your Boss’ card.
Rooms are either Monster Rooms (with…monsters) or Trap Rooms (with
shemales traps), and they deal a certain amount of damage and/ or another effect to the Hero, with the aim being to reduce them to 0 health before they get you.
There are also Spell Cards that are useable in either the Build phase (where you build) or adventure phase (where you- wait; no, figure this out yourself)
We also played with the Tools of Herokind expansion, which adds items to Heroes to make it easier for them to get through your dungeon and makes them dead killy.
This was a present given to me for my Birthday (in May) and in keeping with tradition I’d not played it for ages*, until Friday gone. Apologies Mark, though I did have fun.
Play time even for the first game was only 30 mins or so, its a fun and easy to learn game, and I can imagine it being suitable for about young’uns 10 upwards (but with an adult to teach the game)
Highly recommended and definitely in a good price range so you don’t have to think about re-mortgaging to get a copy (I’m looking at you Dreadfleet, Space Hulk, Execution Force, two copies of Betrayal at Calth and this week’s expense, Deathwatch Overkill…wait all of those are GW games…). I also highly doubt you’ll get judgemental looks off family for playing it(I’m looking at you Dreadfleet–wait a minute…).
Normal service will resume shortly.
Well that’s it for this time. My reviews are crap, make sure you head on over to Kibby’s blog where I’m sure he’ll do a better review than me.
*Interesting titbit: I bought Boss Monster 2 at Blackpool Comic Con without ever having played 1. I am awesome.
