CQB: Futuristic Skirmish Miniatures Rules

Really generic wargame, nothing particularly special that isnt done better by other games. Would rate 3/5 if it wasnt a LIGHT version of a ruleset that is, in theory, coming down the pipes.

Not the worst way to spend 3 dollars, but those 3 dollars could be spent towards a much better product.

Abysmal!

Several typos per page coupled with a snarky/condecending attitude make the rulebook really hard to read.

It says it offers "5 different gangs to play as", and while true, 4 of those gangs have absolutely no difference between them.

It says "do drive bys and commit atrocities", but in book it is quickly explained away as "Thats just normal combat".

It says it comes with many, many tokens to cut out. But all the tokens are visually identical across gangs. So your crypts hangers on looks EXACTLY like your blood hangers on. Leading to confusion and annoyance.

The game also advertises on its cover that it costs 3 bucks, and while i got it for 3.50, the full msrp of it is close to 6. Given the choice, i wouldnt of paid more than a dollar for this.

TLDR: Its like playing a game an edgy 13 year old made for a school project the day it was due while in study hall. Uninspired, anemic and brings nothing particularly worthwhile to the table that has not already been done better and cheaper.

die! Die! DIE! The Family Game of Genocidal Warfare!

Its a risk clone with a few extra tweeks to the formula. You have terrain features, you have differently powered units, you also have some light base building/economic bits.

Being said, i cannot shake how much this plays and reads like risk with precious little to add.

Also the "i spit on your grave" and "dead dead dead" expansions are not present in the game, despite the claim of being added before end of the year. This game was submitted in 2003
