    Description

    Review and rated by Kai Bettzieche (schattentanz)

    First of all I have to say:
    I love BoardGames: You click a link .. then you click another link .. and another .. and all of a sudden you've found a gem .. a gem like Mission Patrol.

    So, let's see what we've got:
    6 pages, DIN A4 (letter format)
    Those 6 pages include:
    4 pages containing the modular game board
    1 page of counters
    1 pocketmod rulebook

    All the tiles are squares or at least rectangles. 6 counters have rouded corners - that's not much .. (I still have nightmares from Nocturno)

    I used a little cutting machine, so the assembly time including firing up the PC, printing, gluing and cutting took less than an hour.

    The rulebook is small, but it covers everything needed to understand the game.

    I had a first run of this game and I already like it.
    You know .. playing mission patrol requires you to roll dice .. and again .. and again .. dice .. dice .. more dice .. and .. dicedicedicedicedicedicedicedice

    So .. what is Mission Patrol about?

    You play Lieutenant Gimp, a Veteran soldier that has been deployed on a monster infested island.
    You have to find three different things: A Charger, a Detonater and - after finding those two items - the Helicopter that will take you away.
    Sounds easy?
    HA!
    Read again: The island is MONSTER INFESTED! More often than every 2nd tile you run into a monster .. And while most of the time you may attack first, some of them will catch you flat footed and strike before you may shoot at them. And those buggers will bring you down quite a lot of times.
    The problem is: you only have three lives - and if you die, you'll have to start all over again. Well .. at least you know, where to go to and where not.

    My first run was a tough one.
    It took me two lives until I found the first mission objective: the charger. Then however I found 5 ammunition tiles consecutively .. I think, next time I will need to shuffle better
    With 5 ammunition tiles on my hand, the rest of the mission was a piece of cake: No longer did I play "Lieutenant Gimp", but rather "Rambo"!
    A monster that wants to fight back? BOOM! You've got Stallowned!

    Résumée:
    Mission Patrol is quick to craft and quick to play.
    The artwork is cartoony, contributing that way to the fun of the game.
    Highly recommended!

    There is a two player coop variant, too .. Let's see when I can find someone to pin down for a game
