View Full Discussion Agree with darren, the game is really fun, and despite being random dice and random draw driven, there is a strong measure of strategy involved. It's a great family game with a lot of replayability. The individual characters have no bearing on the game, so the King Kong-like and Godzilla-like characters are the same until you start upgrading them with cards available to all players in game. It's essentially very light area control and press your luck.
For the deal discussion, Target has the base game on their site for 21.19 today (you can get them to match it in store at the counter, but the posted price on the shelf is closer to 30). $27 more plus shipping gets you the two expansions at other sites, if you want to go on the drive and grab the other components and pay $6 for shipping. Soooo, on the whole, you will save a few bucks buying it as a package here at MD, and you won't have to head to Target and deal with the price adjustment. Also, there are 4 other euro-style gateway games at huge discounts at target.com (Dominion for 23, pandemic for 19, 7 wonders for 25, smallworld for 27, ticket to ride for 30), you'll have to pick up in store in most cases and price match their own site (and sometimes, order online to pick up in store the same day).
