Why It's On The List

  • An odd and possibly disturbing theme (the volcanic destruction of the Roman city of Pompeii) turns to make a very nice tactical placement & movement game... along with a healthy helping of "throw your neighbor under the metaphorical bus".

Tips & Tricks:

    • Do not neglect the power of family members - use your cards wisely to set yourself up to place extra "dudes" on the board.


    • I was pleasantly surprised to find that this game not only worked as an "adult" version of Midnight Party - but also worked great with my then (gamer) 5 year old son as a 2 player game. (He's almost 11 now and still enjoys it.)
