Armor Grid: Mech Attack! $5.95 $4.46
Publisher: Armor Grid Games and Miniatures
by Michael H. [Verified Purchaser] Date Added: 11/12/2011 16:20:49
I was holding off on writing a review till I actually played the game. Well, now I have, and it was a lot of fun.

Instead of doing anything particularly sensible, we just took large mechs and packed them with destruction. His had one of each large weapon, so Heavy Missile, Heavy Cannon, Twin Linked HMG and TwinLinked Heavy Laser. Mine had all but the missile, swapped out for another cannon (because that is what I could find in the bag of weapons.) As with most battles with my nine year old son, there was no tactics. We just walked up and shot it out. In the end I had four columns of armor gone and he had one gone. I just happened to roll a mech destroyed crit first.

The rules are simple and easy to understand. The layout is logical and quick to grok. The font is not my favorite, but that really is my only gripe about the book.

The miniatures are really neat, whether your looking at the troops, vehicles or mechs, and they go together pretty well. The only problems I had were due to my own arthritic hands. Getting into the game only took me so long because I set myself too large a task of getting all of two armies done.

This game is very much what you are looking for if you want a fun alternative to a much more rules heavy giant stompy robot game.
