4.0 out of 5 stars Very fun game, 28 April 2014
Rampage is a very different game to what I have in my collection. Set-up involves building the city and the 3-storey buildings within it, which are supported by meeples on each floor. Once the city is set-up you spend the game destroying the buildings and eating the meeples with your monster. Each player has 2 actions per turn and you can do some novel actions. To move to a different position on the board you flick the circle puck that represents your monster's feet to where you want to go (hopefully). If you are next to a building you can pick up the body of your monster and drop it from an agreed height onto the building below, hopefully causing some serious damage and spreading some… Read more

Step 1: Watched it on TableTop - wasn't that impressed

Step 2: Eventually bought the game due to positive reviews on here

Step 3: Played a few games, thought it was "ok", the scoring is interesting/odd at first, but it kept my interest

Step 4: Decided to buy two expansions for the game (1st and 2nd expansions)

Step 5: This game is awesome and I want to get it onto the table every time we play

This game started slowly and then grew on me the more I played it. Which is probably why it is such a popular game. It seems to have a lot of staying power in the long-run. Recommend it, although the farming scoring will seem confusing at… Read more
