Tommy's Take on Buffy the Vampire Slayer Board Game

The box art is beautiful, with purplish hues covering a montage featuring The Judge, Spike, Drusilla, The Master, Cordelia, Angel, Buffy, Oz, Willow, Giles, Xander and vampire Xander, with a full-color picture of Buffy acting as the centerpiece of the box.

Opening it up, the instruction book is a full-color book, with the cover montage rearranged from the dimensions of the box art to the dimensions of the book's cover.

The premise of the game is supposed to be a rough representation of the first four seasons of Buffy the Vampire Slayer, with one player playing the forces of Evil and the remainder of the players dividing up Buffy, Xander, Oz and Willow.

THE BOARD

The gameboard is a nice, if simplified, Sunnydale, featuring such landmarks as the Graveyard, Spike's Mausoleum, the Buried Church, The Mayor's Office, The Bronze, Giles' home, Buffy's home, Xander's home, the Majik shop, a warehouse, a factory, a hunting store, the University library, Stevenson Hall, Lowell House, The Initiative HQ, a museum and Sunnydale High School complete with Hellmouth. The starting spots of all the characters is indicated on the board, such as Buffy and Faith starting in the graveyward and Oz in The Bronze.

Several of the spaces inside the buildings have colored dots on them, corresponding with the red Weapon cards, yellow Research cards, grey Help cards and black Evil cards. When good guys land on the first three, they can draw from the appropriate deck, and when Evil lands on a black space, they can attempt the same.

Each of the four corners of Sunnydale holds an artifact, which are randomly determined before the game. The middle of the board holds areas for the Weapon, Research, Help and Evil cards, as well as a nice Moon Phase tracker which affects game play depending on the phase of the moon or whether the sun is out. A cardboard standup of the Moon Phase tracker is meant to be set up over it on the board, which allows enough room for the cards to be slid partially underneath it. The problem with this, is that the plastic holders are a bit too small, while the cardboard tabs for the Tracker are a tad too big, meaning that after only a few games, my tabs are already showing some bad wear. The upshot is that there's enough room on the board to lay the cards sideways instead of longways, if the cardboard piece gets too frayed to fit properly.

The Moon Phase tracker is a neat concept, as a pewter Buffy symbol traces the phase of the moon with the following effects: On a New Moon, villains get to draw two Evil cards instead of just one when they land on the appropriate spaces. The Full Moon means Oz (and Veruka, if she's in play) transforms into a Werewolf for the duration of the Full Moon, which - like the New Moon - occupies three spaces on the track. Sunlight only gets one phase, but if the piece even passes over Sunlight, all vampires immediately have to enter the closest availible building, and take damage for every space they had to move in order to get there. In addition, they can't go outside until sunlight ends.

Being an anonymous internet message board...

by blender_full_o_REs

...I try to leave personal details out of everything. That's why I don't go after people, but rather their ideas, UNLESS they were stupid enough to spew their crap all over the board. Then it is fair game.
If you've noticed, I tend to leave tbone and mrgoobers alone most of the time, except for a few humorous ribbings--like the whole Merced undead thing. The only time I really went after tbone was when he was spewing bullshit about his RE office. Personal. Otherwise, it's just ideas and news and the occasional humor.
You, on the other hand, don't seem to have anything to say except about us. Stop it. Grow up.
As for me, I don't need to validate myself or my choices by laying my life out before you all. Whatever little detail I have given was necessary for my to...

I really don't care about the argument you guys

by clfriend

...are having but proud_landlord, you behave abrasively in the settings of the message board, in this thread and others. Whether that's just what you do on the internet or you also do it in real life I don't know. Since you bring alot of insight to the board, I don't mind, but I don't think you can play the abrasive game and get upset when people point it out or react negatively to it. Of course you are by no means the only who acts this way on the message board, but of the people who actually seem to know something, who are here for more than just BH/HH flame wars, you stand out. So ironically because you are smart its a little more noticeable.
