This is a game of pushing and shoving where you attempt to shove opposing pieces off the board and into your treasure stash. The game allows for 2-4 players (though only 2-player games are rated) and supports the Overloaded variant, where pieces exert a force equal to their strength.

goulo 2 Nice simple rules, and the board situation becomes more complex and interesting as the game progresses.

Lexicon 2
nycavri 2 Simple rules mask an abstract with some depth and great visual appeal.
RocketMan 2 What makes this game great is its "whomp" factor and just enough strategic depth.

Cerulean 1 In 2P, this is a resource management game. Much more chaotic in multiplayer (which makes it fun!) Notable use of the board edge.
Dandolo 1

Draw5PlayAll 1 Good strategy, though I prefer 2P, and I did not catch the fine print the first time

megamau 1 I don't know why I like this game.....it doesn't seem to be fun, but nevertheless I go back to it again and again
neilb 1 Fun and intriguing so far, though wondering how often it gets into repetitive cycles.

Hedge_o_Matic 0 There's something about this game that makes me think that, with a bit of analysis, it'd be proven broken. Still, it's fun in a group.
Laurie_Menke 0 Though the second-player advantage is fairly strong, this is still an enjoyable game, in my book. The movement mechanism is fun, and made even more so by the title. I can't seem to play without saying, "Blam!" out loud. ;oD
molnar 0 Didn't dislike it, but didn't have anything that would bring me back for more either.
Orl 0 cool mechanics, interesting choices, yet too repetitive.
Personman 0
unic 0 I can't quite get a grasp of this game... need to play it more.

Zotmeister -1 A game presumably about aggression but is actually almost entirely defense-based. That never makes for a good game, and this is no exception. The Overloaded variant makes things a bit more tenable.
