#92: Rampage (Mark's 100 - 2014)


Mark's Ranking
  • 2014: 92nd
  • 2012: prior to publication
  • 2010: prior to publication
  • 2005: prior to publication
  • rank: 354
  • rating: 7.17
Print Status
  • in print (well, almost back in print)
Why It's On The List
  • a dexterity game of monster destruction - with a 3D city built out of meeples. What's not to like?
Tips & Tricks:
    • This is an experience game - yes, skill with flicking & blowing (monster breath) will help you win, but there's a LOT of luck here.
    • This game is catnip to teenage boys - rave reviews from every one my sons & I have introduced it to...
    • I like the "side B" of the escaped meeples chart better than the "original" side.
    • The reprint of the game is named "Terror in Meeple City" - Asmodee had to bow to pressure since the game theme & artwork was too close to the trademark material of the beloved old-skool video game.
    • This one was on my Essen wishlist from last year... glad I got it for my birthday!

    Mark, I was going to email you to avoid sounding like spam, but I wanted to let you know that I am using your top 100 list to discuss on my blog those games that I've played that are on your list (so far only one - Rampage). You might enjoy the rest of the blog as well. Enjoying your list.
