Alan Clift (Kadet) posted a review of ROSWELL 51 on the BoardGameGeek forums. Alan is no stranger to Shuffling Horror, having run the game with us at Gen Con and Origins Game Fair this summer. He knows his way around the Shuffle Board for sure!

Here’s some highlights from his review:FIN-SQR-R51-Movie-Tilt-gc2

–Playing it feels like watching, or even making, a sci-fi B-movie from the 50’s!

–Roswell 51 is a good game with its action-based card-n-dice play that is set in a retro alien invasion theme. It becomes a very good game when players get into character, adding embellishments to the action scenes that the game creates.

–The game has rich fight/flight mechanics. The use of scarce resources, called survivor points, modify dice rolls providing strategic choices. These should be used sparingly as your life depends on it!

–Game play allows for the players to embellish the plot, like actors with creative reign over their characters. This really brings the game to life!
