  2. I would really like to try this game. A lot of the aspects present in this game are right up my alley. A good bit of dice and randomness, but strategy mixed in there as well. I am anxious to give this game a try.

  3. I kind of don’t like Risk, but this game seems right up my alley! It’s just got so much character!

  4. Thanks for reviewing this! I play with a group who love to bring out Risk. I’m kinda sick of it, but have a hard time convincing them to play other stuff. Maybe this will be a good compromise.

    A world domination game where the goal is to not dominate the board ??

    Some complaints here. The “powerplant” regions are really stupid concept. Players should get the construction points for all their factories because if his opponent has the extra powerplants and factories you are screwed. You will never be able to regroup, not only is he building more units he is getting the victory points for the power plant as well.

    Also, Fix the fact that is an opponent has a boat next to your dock you cannot build boats. This is dumb.

    What I liked. Fantastic combat mechanics. Cool special abilities. Game construction is great.
    I give it an 8/10
