For the lay people : "Aliens" the Card Game.,
This review is from: Space Hulk : Death Angel - the Card Game (Toy)
The mechanics is quite interesting, pitting all the players as marines working together against "the game" which spawns an almost endless supply of nasty aliens for you gore yourself on as you move from level to level towards the final objective. Despite it's simplicity there's a high amount of strategy as you jostle your collective marines into the best position to defend and attack. It's also crucial to plan actions for the next turn and a wrong move or an unlucky roll can prove v.costly and makes each game very tense and foreboding. A solid selection of different squads and abilites (6 in all) plus locations help to add variety and it even supports a single player mode to boot !!
For those unfamiliar with games workshop, imagine "Aliens" the film, condensed into an exciting 60 minute card game... nuff said.
