If you're old like me, you remember pumping quarters into the arcade game RAMPAGE. Pounding buildings and eating people.
What could have been better, right?
Well now someone has made that arcade game into a 3D board game.
In the game of Rampage players each control one of the four monsters and their objective is to cause the most damage to the city while eating the Meeple citizens. Each turn consists of choosing two actions to complete. These actions include: Movement, Attack a Building, Hurl a truck, or Monster Breath. Eating Meeples does not take an action, however, players are limited each turn by the number of teeth their monster has remaining. The game ends when the buildings are destroyed. Buildings, Meeples eaten and the Other Monster's Teeth are worth points. To be victorious, players will need to use a combination of dexterity, planning and luck.
In Rampage, you arrive in Meeple City as a gigantic, famished, scaly-skinned monster! Your goal: Dig your claws and dirty paws into the asphalt, destroy buildings, and devour innocent meeples. The monster who has caused the most damage after the carnage finally ends wins the game.
The buildings in Meeple City are comprised of floor tiles and meeples, with the meeples serving as pillars that support the floors.
Each monster, which consists of a wooden paws disc and a wooden body, starts in one corner of the game board. On a turn you take two actions from four possibilities, repeating an action if desired:
-Move: Pick up your monster body, flick the paws disc, then place the body back on the disc.
-Demolish: If your paws are on the sidewalk surrounding a building, you can pick up your monster body, drop it onto a building, then collect any floors that have no meeples on them.
-Toss a vehicle: If you're in a neighborhood with a vehicle, you can pick up the vehicle, place it on your body, then flick the vehicle at a building or another monster.
-Breathe: Even while away from sidewalks with no vehicles, you can cause destruction by placing your chin on your monster's body and blowing across the board.
After your two actions, you can eat unprotected meeples on the ground in your neighborhood, but you can eat only as many as the number of teeth you have. If you knock another monster to the ground, you break off one of its teeth, thereby keeping it from stealing your food!
You score points for eating meeples, collecting floors and teeth, and for achieving the goal on your character card.
In addition to the character card, each player has a power card and a superpower card unique to his monster, with the former lasting the entire game and the latter being a one-shot effect that's revealed only upon use.
