Tulipmania 1637

If you are looking for a deep game, your not going to get it from this game. But if you want a somewhat light weight game. Then this might work.

This is really a stock market game, with tulips. The theme works with the game great and it is a good game. It’s also a pretty simple game. You sell, you buy, and you see what happens.

The Replay value is good. You have a change in cards and set-ups in every game. So you won’t have the same game twice, at least for awhile.

Components are good too. The Wooden tulips are cool, the board is good, not cheap. The cards are flimzy, but if you put them in sleeves, it will work.

It is also is pretty easy to learn. Maybe 10 and up, but 12 might be a little high. But it is not apples to apples.

Overall it’s a good game I like to play it and it’s a fun but It’s a light stock-market type game.

I have writen a whole review on the heroscape game, so go look at that if you don’t know what heroscape is. But if you do, this set comes with superheros! Do I need to say anything else…That would make most people buy this, but I will anyway.

The figures are great, they can be overpowering at times though, so watch out. It is sometimes hard to defeat these figures, but they make the game what it is. A fictional game, with fictional characters. It is so fun to play with Hulk, Spider-Man, Iron Man and everyone else that comes with it. 10 characters come with it, but there is not a lot of terain tiles to play with, but if you have other sets then this just makes it better.

So if you are thinking about getting this then you should, it just makes it better. I love it and it also comes with the Warehouse. Which is cool looking, so I give it two thumbs up.

Okay, this game is not just the normal board game. It is a miniatures game mixed with a create your own battlefield game.
The two work!

1-COMPONENTS! The best ever! awesome looking figures. look at them above, don’t they look great. you have to agree! lol! From robots to lizards to dragons to whaterver you can think of really!
And the map itself! Castles, rocks, lava, water, cool looking ruins, and …
Go to board game geek and look it up, if you don’t know what this game is, you will be amazed!
I have said to friends hey you want to play this. I show them the castle i built, they say YEAH! Every time!

2-It is so easy to learn. You place the 3 order markers and the 1 bluff marker and then you play 3 rounds! Atk. and def. is easy too. just dice! no charts or cards.

3-Replay on this game is unbelievable! I don’t know how many army combinations there are avalible! Maybe in the mil. that is a lot!

4-Gameplay is just great and simple! if you can’t put the figure there, then you can’t put it there. Simple.
I love it because it looks great plays great and is great.

If you have a child that loves toys, and loves games. Then this is it! It will work. This master set (#1 out of 3) is the best one. I have all 3 but this comes with the most. Most terrain, the best Characters, and the most pieces out of the others. So if you can’t pick this up. do it! you can find a random set of stuff on ebay for a great deal!

This game is like heroscape with cards! You can bring this to a cafe and play it. Comes in a portible box. And it’s easy to play!

Replay Value
This game now has about 14 armys you can play. so this has so much replay value, plus, you can get Reinforcement Packs, wich enable you to add different peoplr to each army, and you can play the same army over and over again without getting bored. So great

Replay Value!
Components
It has okay components, Its just cards, but with the cards is what makes this game great! Comes with good dice and markers, over all, good components for a small publisher!

Easy to Learn
This is a simple game that has a lot of strategy! You move the cards, attack with the cards, then you can use cards to get awesome cards! First person to kill the other player’s leader, wins! So a great little game, and If you think you like it, I think you should try it out. Because a lot of people will want to play it, it’s too simple for someone not want to play it!

Zombie Dice

19 out of 38 gamers thought this was helpful

If your looking for a high strategy game, then this is not for you.
If your looking for a fun, easy to play and learn, party game with dice, then this is the game for you.

You roll dice, choose to stay or go and that’s it…but with zombies, who does not like rolling dice with the theme of zombies!
If you do you will like the game if you like to lose sometimes. And you will, it’s dice, but sometime you or someone else will get a great roll and everyone will say yeah, booooo or something else, but I had fun with it and my friends did too!

If you just started playing games you need to have this game, stop reading this and go get it…if you can! Really this is the starting game for all gamers.
Ticket to Ride is the best starting game to play because it’s so easy, but has so much strategy and can be play with anyone and within an hour! My friend that loves video games and plays them all the time will sit down and play this becuase it’s so much fun and has strategy. there are so many ways to play it. like go for long routes or short routes or in the middle! Great Game go and get it if you are thinking about getting it! NOW!

Cosmic Encounter

This my 3rd favorite game of all time! 50 aliens that are all great, has great artwork and the game plays so well, so much fun in a hour!

And it is simple, you attack with cards, then whoever has the largest number (maybe smallest number) wins the attack, I think anyone can do that. But it is very hard to master this game. there is a lot of luck, but that makes the game great! The worst player at the table still has a chance to win the game.

With 50 aliens, is has great replay. You play with one (or two) then you play with another just as good! All of them have their strategies, which is great!

The pieces are great, they are these little space ships that stack, so that you don’t have to have 4 ships laying on a planet, you just have a stack, it works.

A great game that does not take 3 hours to play, it takes less than 1 hour!

You pick a red apple card that matches the green apple card (or something funny the leader will choose) and try to win the round. Can be so funny! Just a great party game, the best one out there!!!

Small World

Smallworld is a easy to learn game that takes timely strategy to win.

Hard cardboard armies and pieces. It works for a light game like this one.

The replay on this will last. but you might get tired of the same armies over and over. You can buy the expansions to fix this.

This game will NOT work with hard core gamers because there is some luck, and there is just not enough depth. But it WILL work with a family. It is great for that. It does not have a lot of strategy but has timely strategy!

One of the first games I ever played, I just loved it, so it hooked me, so I bought more games but this was the best starting game for me and maybe for you or you just want to get a new game. Wonderful components and always thinking about in when your not play it!!! Great Game!

This might be the hardest co-op game out there.

It has good pieces and good cardboard.

It is somewhat simple to play. Maybe because it is really hard to win. You really need 4 players for this game. 1, 2, and 3 are not the best, 4 is. The more players you have the better.

The replay is great because there are like 10 leaders. and you use one per game. Sometimes you don’t even get to them. (You lose before you get to him/her)

Great game but HARD!

If you like ticket To Ride USA this just makes it better!!!

The cards are full size. I hate the little cards that came with the main game. And it comes with more tickets. (also full size)
It makes the game better with just that.
So if you have this game get this. it is a must have for Ticket To Ride!
