Army vs. Aliens
Can flying saucers and death rays beat out tanks, nukes and troopers? Find out with Army vs. Aliens, a fun take on alien invasion games.
You get to choose whether you want to fight off alien forces as the army or if you want be the aliens trying to conquer Earth. Army vs. Aliens tests your gaming skills in fast-paced dice combat. By combining strategy, cunning and a little luck, players outsmart their opponents to win.
In the game, players roll dice to set their power (each army has one type of dice with six faces) so they can destroy the other players' dice on a subsequent turn. Used dice are put into an expended pile, where they can later be rallied (re-rolled) to reset their power. Dice are ranked in power and can destroy any die of equal or lesser rank but the 'higher value' dice have special abilities (like Nukes on the Army side that will destroy just about everything if you get three of them). On a player turn, they have just those three options: attack with an existing die, rally any or all dice (including active ones) or use a special power. Games can take five minutes once players know the basics.
