Manhattan -- The Godzilla Variant
Well, Manhattan is already a good game. But, after having played
a bit too much poker, Eric Moore and I were discussing the game and I said
"Well, Ben can't wait to steal a godzilla from an Alan Moon game and play
Manhattan with it."
A few minutes later, these rules were born.
Setup and Play
Take any convenient counter (of course, a Godzilla from one of
Alan's games is preferred) and set it in the center of any city. For
purposes of Godzilla, the cities form a 2x3 rectange that wraps around
at both edges.
Play of the game is completely normal, except, after you play
a card and build a piece, Godzilla moves. If you played a card that
let you build in the center, Godzilla doesn't move. If you played
a card that let you build in any other space, Godzilla moves in
that direction (diagonally if you built in a corner, horizantally
or vertically if you built on an edge).
Any building that Godzilla steps on is destroyed.
This sick idea was jointly conceived by
Brian Bankler and
Thanks to Ben Peal for the inspiration.
