I didn't really pay attention to it initially, but after finally playing it I was hooked.

Re: Survive! Escape From Atlantis

Yes, I noted that in the article.

Survive! was the original, Atlantis was the expansion, and this is an update that includes all the rules for both, plus some.

Re: Survive! Escape From Atlantis

Yeah Superfly, this game has been on my radar for a while now as I've been paying attention to BGG and members here in the Board Game thread. I've inquired and got nothing but positive answers regarding this game. It's on the list along with Ticket To Ride for my next online order. I'm newish to other board games, other than the usual kids games you can get at Target or whatever, Heroscape and Summer Wars. So based on "hype" and inquiring from people, my first purchases were Dominion and Dominion Prosperity. Then on my last order I got Thunderstone Dragonspire and 2 LOTR:The Card game Core sets (one of which I just gave to my nephew yesterday and he was floored that I gave it to him for watching my kids for 5 hours while the wife and I went out).

Anyway since my wife isn't a gamer, the only non-kid game she would even try is Dominion ("why do you have to get all these "exotic" games?" she asks.). So while my kids and nephew love all the games, I'm hoping to get my wife to join in the fun after I purchase Survive and Ticket to Ride, as hopefully they seem less "exotic" to the wife and more old fashioned family fun type games.

I'll likely get these games in June/July. I was wanting to tack it on to my Summoner Wars master set order that was supposed to be released in June, but I just heard that it's not going to be released until July for non-Plaid Hat sites. I love me some free shipping, so I like to order in bulk when I can.

That's the sign of a great game: you get your butt kicked repeatedly and still want to play. Heroscape taught me a lot about this!

Re: Survive! Escape From Atlantis

I was just able to snag a copy of this at Miniature Market's scratch-n-dent sale.

Now I just have to try to find a copy of the squid expansion somewhere...

Re: Survive! Escape From Atlantis

Great review, Superfly. It looks like its sweet spot is ~4 players. Is that about right, do you think?

Also your homework is to write the word "caricature" 100 times.

Re: Survive! Escape From Atlantis

Just got the game today and played one with my daughters. We all enjoyed it. I certainly recommend it.
