For The Win!
Back to Feburary, For The Win! - Zombies, Pirates, Ninjas, Aliens and Monkeys was successfully funded over Kickstarter. Thanks to all the bankers and the developers, we can play this game and I am able to write this preview.
The board game is designed by Michael Mindes aka Michael Eskue who is with a great love for simple abstract games. And it has been nominated as one of 2012 Golden Geek Best Abstract Board Game.
Each player owns 2 sets of tiles. Each set consists of Zombie, Pirate, Ninja, Alien and Monkey. Your goal is to combine them together.
Currently the game supports only local games with built-in AIs or Pass N'Play with your friends. If the game is between 2 players, you can set the the startup arrangement of first 2 tiles. The game starts with any player randomly. On each turn, the active player must take one or two actions. Players continue taking turns until all players have used their 5 actions for that round. You can take actions listed below:
An Online game should be considered in future updates.
Each player owns an avatar. You can unlock 9 more if you follow TMG (Tasty Minstrel Games) on Twiiter, like TMG on Facebook or subscribe emails from TMG. And what's more, 2 avatars are still locked in mystery. If you unlock all the avatars, you can unlock all the 4 achievements in Game Center.
The rule is easy to learn but the game is hard to master. The abstract strategy game with a great play vale will bring you and your friends a wonderful time.
