The main deck consists of 500 cards, split between character cards (white cards), and powers and weaknesses (black cards). These cards are used to create fights like this:
A KINDERGARTEN CLASS THAT BREATHES FIRE AND IS WEARING JETPACKS vs. A PIRATE SWINGING A SHARK ON A CHAIN AND RIDING A SEGWAY.
As you can imagine, the arguments over who would win the fight are epic and hilarious.
Seriously, seriously fun. I played this last night with the two boys and the arguments were flying fast and furious. In fact, my phone rang and we didn’t quit playing, we just added in another person to the madness. We were laughing so hard that it was hard to breathe. I honestly cannot say enough good things about this game, but let me try:
- Super easy to set up. No. Seriously. You take the plastic off the box. Open the box. Take some cards out. That’s it.
- Super easy to play. The rules are clear, concise and within moments, super models are battling Chuck Norris.
- Super easy to win… Okay, this all depends on how far you get into your debates. For us, the game moved quickly.
- Super fun. All of us were laughing, all of us were debating and all of us agreed that this is going on our favorite games shelf.
It’s not often that a game or anything comes along that makes everyone happy. This one succeeded and then some. We did play with the Geek expansion deck (the orange deck) and since there are no fewer than 8 decks that we don’t own yet, I can pretty much guarantee that this game isn’t going to grow old any time soon and that there will be hours and hours of game play in our future.
