Board With Godzilla

Godzilla: Kaiju World WarsYou’re an airplane-tickling monster. For lunch you have buildings, meaty portions of other giant monsters and a side order of fleeing citizens. You have only two goals in life: seek and destroy. Mostly destroy. But before you can start turning other monsters into landfill, there are a few rules. And like buildings, rules were made to be broken.

Godzilla: Kaiju World WarsThat’s all you have to know about playing the new Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars board game. (Screaming optional.) As you recall like it was yesterday (actually 2004) in Godzilla Final Wars, our ticked off hero went up against the Xiliens, as well as every dai kaiju in the monster garage. Those the interstellar butt-heads used future science to control Earth’s monsters and forced them to smack each other. Godzilla chokes one of King Ghidorah’s three necks; Gigan sticks his claw up Rodan’s lava chute; and buildings crumble like so many obliterated bags of fortune cookies. And while this is going on, the military is unleashing tax-wasting artillery like it was Kaiju Pea-Shooter Wars.

Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars

By playing Godzilla: Kaiju World Wars, you get a chance to re-write history and let the hot air out of the Xiliens’ balloon. The 3-D playing field, with action figures so realistic, you’ll crumble in your pants, was designed by Richard H. Berg (I don’t know who that is) and retails for $46.99 at You have until May, 2011 when it’s released to ransack your mother’s purse.

Godzilla: Kaiju World WarsGodzilla: Kaiju World Wars comes with four fully-painted 2 3/8 plastic monsters, 90 stackable plastic tiles for erecting skyscrapers that will hopefully be destroyed, four individual monster play mats, and 86 terrain and power tokens.

Fleeing citizens sold separately.
