5.0 out of 5 starsU.M., F.I.M.A. and Crazies, Oh My!

January 9, 2017

Verified Purchase

Quick Summary:

This is one kick-ass game! It requires a bit of skill, a lot of luck and an appreciation for politically incorrect comedy. After emerging from Big Nasty City, you must gather gear and avoid danger while traversing cleverly named landscapes -- such as Ham Radio Hill, Bust-A-Move-River and, my personal favorite, Frozen Ass Pass -- in an attempt to make it to your Super Cool Bug Out Cabin. All-in-all, this game is well-designed awesomeness that's fun for even just two people to play. LOVE IT!!!

10/10 would get arrested by F.I.M.A. again!

More Detail:

Received as a Christmas gift from my girlfriend's family, we didn't purchase this game ourselves. However, it didn't take long after we started playing it to realize that it's totally worth the buy. We had an absolute blast, and that was only with the two of us; I can only imagine the chaotic hijinks that four or more players would result in.

The artwork of the game was the first thing that caught my eye. When looking at the green tire tread-patterned box, you expect to open it up to similarly simplistic components. Instead, you're greeted with a charming three-fold game board with hand-drawn artwork and a set of well-documented instructions. Two six-sided die are included, as well as a stack of Gear Cards and the Determiner Card which is used when you land on particular spaces to hash out what happens to you. As for game pieces, it's up to the players to improvise their own so we used two mini Minecraft figurines. I appreciated this feature as well; it adds a sense of unique identity to your piece as it bounces around the map.

One thing I quickly discovered is that having the most gear and/or being the furthest piece on the board far from guarantees your success. Perils abound in The G.O.O.D. Game, from getting thumped-up by Unwanted Militants (U.M.), being the victim of Forced Incarceration by Malicious Agency (F.I.M.A.), or simply succumbing to the hardships of the road, there are a multitude of ways to lose your advantage if you fail to prepare accordingly. I made the mistake of poking fun at my girlfriend for getting arrested multiple times, and karma bit me in the ass for it as I reached the end of the board... I bounced between the same six spaces five turns in a row and watched my female counterpart casually skip past me for the win.

At the end of the day, I HIGHLY recommend this game. It's fun, engaging, and can get fairly intense at times but in a good way, regardless of how many people are playing. So do yourself a favor: Order this game, clear your Saturday schedule, call up some friends and Get Out Of Dodge!

I don't usually write reviews, but if anything is deserving it's this game. Very fun with a different outcome every time you play. My best description is to compare it to the game of LIFE with much crazier and unpredictable obstacles to overcome. Customer service is better than any I've ever seen. Quick response when I had a question about the game. The topper is today I received a post card hand written saying thanks again for the purchase and to enjoy the game. I love seeing people so passionate of their work and look forward to the next game they make.

5.0 out of 5 starsFun Game For Game Night!

October 20, 2017

I got this game for my fiance for christmas looking for a good prepper or survivalist game and he loved it. We have games nights with family pretty regularly and get tired of the same old games. This was definitely a winner in our household. The game challenges your mind between figuring out what you need to do at moment and later on in the game. Strategy is key with this game.

The company actually sent us a card almost a year later asking for a review and our opinion of the game which i feel is a pretty personal touch as well. Great company and a great game!

I love the nostalgia of board games in this day and age where everything is electronic. This game was a lot of fun, we played with 2 other couples in a cabin we rented for the weekend and we all enjoyed getting to customize our playing pieces as well as what happens on the "chance" roles!

5.0 out of 5 starsA board game I can get behind!

My bride got me this game for Christmas. And what a game it is!

Will it help you survive a SHTF EOTWAWKI event? Naaaah. It's not meant to be a survival tool.

It is a game. It's fun. And that is all it needs to be.

The rules are simple - and they hit you with the self-reliance, be ready to improvise schtick right out of the box. You have to improvise game pieces. I, of course, selected a 12 gauge training shell.

Games move fairly quickly and we had a lot of fun. It is one of those board games that will be great for fun nights, camping trips, vacations at the cabin...and - perhaps someday - a great way to pass the time in the Bunker.

Highly recommended.

Fantastic game. All pieces and materials are of excellent quality. Easy to learn, and fun to play. Everyone in my family enjoyed it. A couple curves are difficult to get past and it makes for a toss up as to who will win.

Included a handwritten postcard from the creator. Nice to see the human side.
