This is good stuff…
September 21, 2008

This is good stuff… really good… pure strategy and tactics… no luck here. Like chess the opening is all about strategy. Which pieces will you bring out first and where will you place them. The middle game is the battle, one that usually goes back and forth several times. Often you will think you have it won… but then find you lack the fire-power… coming up one piece short of making the final kill. And the end game is pure tactics… a blunder against a better player, and you will lose. This game has become one of our favorite lunch-time games at work. It’s awesome… it’s deep… the more you play (like chess) the more you see how good this game really is. And it plays in 20-30 minutes which makes it excellent for those times when you do not have a lot of time (like lunch). It is also easy to transport, plays almost anywhere, and the Bakelite pieces are of the highest quality (thick and heavy… they feel good in your hands and stay-put on the table)… what more can I say?

Simple Rules, Quick Play, Deep Fun!
April 25, 2006

"Again!", says my wife.

"We just played three times and you want to play again?", I stammer in rapt incredulity!

"Again!", she demands...

A demand I willingly fulfill!

This game is easy to explain, easy to remember, easy to love! We play best out of five when time allows (read; when kids stay sleeping long enough). And we have had to get three copies thus far because guest keep leaving with our latest copy.

Amazing complexity in such a small game
January 17, 2004

One thing I must say is I believe that a previous reviewer thought that you couldn't end movement touching another colors piece. You can. The only restriction on touching an enemy color is when you are bringing a new piece into play, it may only touch your pieces. It can't touch an enemy piece at all.

The interaction of the various bugs is tough to coordinate as you opponent can pin and isolate your pieces even as you do the same to him.

The choices of which pieces to bring out in the first 4 are the start of hostilities. I like to start off with two beetles and the queen then a Grasshopper. This seems to allow a lot of flexibility in the early going.

A great game to carry with you it plays anywhere and always attracts people.
