A friend of mine got this game and invited our gaming group over for some (rare) in-person gaming. We all loved it, admittedly partly because of the chrome of an app-driven game that features a motorized tower that rotates, flashes, roars, and shoots skulls out at you.

When I inquired how much he paid for it with the Kickstarter, he told he had purchased two and was willing to sell me his additional copy basically for his cost (and it included many of the additional stretch goals). Copies on E-Bay and BGG are going for 50% or more over the Kickstarter price, so I purchased his copy.

We played three games over Spring Break--my wife really enjoyed it, and my teenage kids tolerated hanging out with their parents for a couple of hours. So it's a big hit at least for Mrs. TC and me.

One note--We've lost both games played with four players, but won both played with two players.

We played the heck out the original back in the day. I would love a copy of the new version but there's no way I'm paying outrageous prices for it.

It was pricey, but not as bad as I thought it would be. I was happy to get it so quickly, actually. I think there's a lot of people still waiting for their order.

I don't think the Kickstarter price was bad, I mean the current "you missed the Kickstarter" prices.

Yeah, I was lucky that my buddy was happy to sell me his extra at the KS price, not the market rate.
