Campy Creatures - Dastardly Review #077
Updated: Jul 2, 2018
Campy Creatures was a successful Kickstarter campaign in March 2017.
Campy Creatures is NOT a game of luck and dice rolling. All players play with the same set of cards. This is truly a player v player v player etc game.
The artwork is dark but very fun…think late, late night horror shows from the 1960’s.
Each Monster has a strength rating, ability and an activation phase.
Each Mortal has a point value (some are conditional).
Play is quick:
Turn over Mortal cards equal to the number of players.
Players chose a Monster to play and put it face down.
All players reveal their Monsters at the same time. You figure out which Monsters activate first.
The monster with the highest strength attacks first and captures a Mortal card. Then the next strongest until all Monsters have attacked.
When the Mortal stack of cards is exhausted the round is over.
Players total up the value of their mortals.
The game is over after the third round.
The player with the most points wins!
The Good: Game play is fast and fun...the artwork is out of this world!
The Bad: No Frankenstein-ish card!
The Dastardly: Campy Creatures is almost more about reading your opponents then the cards themselves.
