Game Box Monthly Review: March 2015

I have so much fun getting my Game Box Monthly boxes each month. This month's game sounds amazing and I can't wait to play it! With the move, things have been a bit hectic, but I'm hoping we will have a chance to play before everything is in boxes!

Our game this month is Titans Tactics. The description reads: "Titans Tactics is a fast-paced 2 player skirmish board game designed to deliver deep strategy in 30 minutes or less. Lead Factions of Dragons, Angels, Pirates, Monsters, or Undead Soldiers into battle against your opponent in a race to become the most powerful Titan.

Factions contain six Champions, each with unique skills and abilities. Every game Players choose three of the six to fight in the arena. Champions can take and deal damage but cannot be killed, and zero sum scoring determines the winner. Clever and tactical use of their Champions will allow a player to claim victory.

Players manage their Champions' abilities via their hand of Skill Cards, spending them to sling fireballs, backstab their enemies, charge their foes, and teleport with ease. With no random elements, tactical play shines though. Thinking and planning ahead is highly rewarded."

I am a huge Magic: The Gathering fan, but my biggest complaint about it is that it takes FOREVER. This sounds like it has a lot of the same elements but is meant to be played quickly. That will be nice. I also love that there's a lot of variety so it's a quick game, but has tons of replayability.

We were also sent a couple of bonus coin-based games. I think it's nice to get these little bonus items every month because they make it more exciting than just one game. However, the games have all been a hit so far so I always look forward to this subscription box!
