The giant-monster-movie-inspired board game Rampage has been scheduled for a late November release. The game was designed by Antoine Bauza (7 Wonders) and Ludovic Maublanc (Cash ‘n Guns) at the Repos Production studio in France. Asmodee previewed the game at Gen Con last month, and will be distributing it in the US.
In a press release, Bauza explained the inspiration behind the game: "The idea of Rampage was born when I saw Cloverfield, a movie I didn’t particularly enjoy but that gave me a renewed desire to make a game themed around daikaiju, or Japanese giant monsters."
In Rampage, each player controls a giant monster as it makes its way through the three-dimensional "Meeple City," trying to cause as much damage as possible as they eat the city’s denizens. Gameplay centers around player dexterity. To move a monster, the player must "flick" its token like a carom. The monster playing pieces are physically used to destroy buildings. Players can even blow across the board in an effort to knock over pieces.
Rampage will have a suggested retail price of $59.99.
