So....I gave in and bought two starters of this with two unit booster. 50ish bucks. Not too bad, but I still don't like the collectible aspect.

HOWEVER

We played a game and it was a blast. It plays incredibly quickly, the prepaints look FANTASTIC, and the rules are basic enough to learn in about 15 minutes but complicated enough for there to be plenty of depth. I still hate that it's collectible, wish they'd just sell army packs for 50 bucks or whatever, but I still think it's a fun little game.

Nothing like having your monster bodyslam your opponents monster into a building and set it on fire. Heh.

Yeah, I really enjoyed it, and so did my lady, which I think is a good sign for a game (she's not usually into monsters OR minis games). Again, I really wish it wasn't collectable...but what can you do.

Get in touch with DM Lackey on the YQ boards -
he buys games like these "en Mass" and I'm sure he'd help you collect what you need through trades etc...

I don't remember which sites, but there are 2 that Ive come across already breaking down the boosters and making money on the singles. Knoble Knights perhaps??

I think this game is gonna rise to the top like cream, and be one of the greats.

Switching gears for a moment, Muntent Chronicles is out to. FFG has many product currently availible. I'm stumped on what direction I want to proceed with. Im just looking for a fast game, and a system that will have great support and possible weekly tournament play.

Still looking at this too Whitt.

Glad to know you liked it. I bought a couple boosters at GenCon and have a download of the rule set.

I think it'll be a fun beer and pretzels.

I was able to pick up a starter set yesterday from a buddy who sells online and a bunch of unit boosters as well.

Reading through the rules system, this is a pretty darn tough game. There is alot of thinking and serious tactics involved. The starter is packed full of goodies to. John, the starter is a must have, you need dice, tactical info pages for your army, ect. There is alot to it, although it can be played as a simple hit and miss game to, but who would like that?

And what is it, you love about it? The way it looks, plays, maps, rules? Ive been collecting it a good deal, but havent played that much. I do like the minitures, and they sell for good money.

Don't need to specify here. Got my starter today.....

(sorry Kendell, I'll buy the one your saving for me from you too)

and another unit booster and my first monster booster. For mew being a Godzilla fanatic, this game is right up my alley. Love how the figs look. Love the mechanics of the game, and it's an easy collectors game.

Witt.....

frpgames.com and
coolstuffinc.com

these 2 sights have singles. Coolstuff has boosters at $8 bucks a piece.
After shipping tho, it coes down to 12 a booster anyway.

With you Witt. Collectables suck donkey. The laugh factor wins out.

This game was pretty popular at the Gencon release. It was a shame that the content of the starters and boosters were incomplete. Then again they were in rush to get something out by the convention. They were packing at least some of the boxes as they were sold. When buying some recently over at Scifi City seeing the inflated air-pouch threw me for a loop.

There is a full write up on the packaging on the ppp site. There is also a plastic block in the pachage so people like me don't request to shake every box looking for the big monsters. They say it equals out the weight better. War At Sea has this problem, and if your not one of the front runners, when the cases arrive at the LGS, you get nothing but crapp.

The game is huge here, well let me re-phrase that, Privateteer Press is very popular here. Have you ever seen a store that is completely dedicated to that line?,,,,I have.....It's kind boring, but hey, it's all good.

I think you might like it Bob, it has all the power gaming you could ever want. From what I here, all the TCG WOW, Magic, and other power games, with large stacking abilitys, people play, are also leaning towards this one as well. I give them credit (PP), there support is huge.

LOL yeah know that one personally. Getting the right aircraft is a bitch too.

Played the demo and bought a bunch at Gencon. PP had a line system to restrict how often a badge holder bought packs. My earlier comment was on how they didn't actually have the product ready by Gencon, limited unit and monster releases.

Collectables need to do this or they don't last long. It is all about getting the game played in stores. Although the prize support units thing has me a bit peeved at them. But support of any kind is something they need to do. So this game has a shot.

Jeff Thompson was supposed to try and get into demoing the game locally in a serious manner but as I understand it the stores or PP weren't very responsive.
