Nothing subtle here. Grab your friends, grab your dice, make up a character and go. Start with a pistol and work up to a Heavy Assault Cannon with Chainsaw. Or maybe just a Nuke. When you die--and you will--you "respawn" on your next turn, and you're back in the fight! The first player to score three frags wins.
Frag is fast and violent, perfect for a lunch hour slugfest or for long nights of mayhem.
Average Rating: 2.5 in 2 reviews
Frag is fun for the Beer & Pretzels crowd. It's a bit reminiscent of RoboRally, but with a more generic movement system, and no goal other than carnage.
It's essentially 'Quake: The Boardgame'. Run around, pick up weapons and other gadgets, shoot your friends.
Makes for fun stories like: 'I hacked the game to double my stats, fired 2 point blank shotgun blasts at Bob, fragging him, then emptied my beam pistol at Bill, reloaded, and emptied it again, but he played an automatic miss on me.'
It is indeed expensive for what you get. (Which isn't even enough to play. You still need some counters, extra dice, and pencils/paper a la Cheapass Games.) But it's a lot of fun. I foresee official or unofficial expansions with new boards and/or cards.
For the price, the game is expensive. The board is folded paper and is not backed. Counters are not even perforated for easy assembly. You will need a metal straight-edge and xacto knife. Cards are drawn on various areas of the board. Equipment, weapons, and special abilities are the areas of interest. With these in your hand, you can customize your player. At the beginning of the game, you also develop three stats with points to make your player: fast, tough, or accurate with weapons. After each game you can upgrade with an experience system. Very competitive game. Play with friends may become hostile. Overall, I am disappointed with the game.
