Bad acting, poor special effects, and a plot with a thousand holes. These ingredients make up the B-movies you love to hate and hate to love. Now you and your friends can create your own B-movies with Grave Robbers From Outer Space, the soda and the popcorn card game that pays homage to the great turkeys you stay up late to watch.
I haven't gotten much of a chance to try out the expansions yet. I throughly enjoyed this game early in its beta period. I've recommended it to many people in the past, its loads of fun. The game play gives you something a little different every time and the various expansions I'm sure add to this effect. As a B movie fan and a gamer I give it two tenticles up.
I avoided Magic. I started 7th Sea, but I got trashed every time I played, so I lost interest. Then I found GRfOS. My wife and I are now addicted. We quote the flavor text constantly. It's a pleasure to find a game that doesn't take itself seriously, and where you won't lose just because your opponent has more expensive cards. Once you're familiar with the cards, you have the same chance to win as someone who has been playing twice as long. It has the same sense of fun as MST3K, the same 'I can't stop' appeal of buttered popcorn or a good bag of potato chips. Collectible card snobs will no doubt hate it, but if you love B-movie sci-fi and want a game that makes you laugh win or lose, this is your game.
Our family of three generations of fans of drive-in horror flicks enjoys this game very much. Similar in play to the popular collectible trading card games such as [page scan/se=0534/sf=category/fi=stockall.asc/ml=20]Magic: The Gathering, it is less complex and intimidating because players do not create individual decks. The shared 'back story' of B Science Fiction and Horror movies provides a humorous and familiar background for player interaction and creativity.
