I've played the first mission 2 times so far with 2 different friends. We had a really fun time. I'm fairly new to board games, but my friends have been playing them heavily for years. This was a game that I thought I could finally relate to them with, and it's working. The art in the cards and miniatures is beautiful. I sometimes get distracted just looking at a card or playing with a figure.

To help me understand the rules, I watched youtube videos of a guy playing through the first mission. I'm a visual learner, so this helped immensely.

I bought a cheap plastic tackle box to put the pieces in, and it helps when looking for tokens or figures when playing.

I picked up some card sleeves and I'm glad I did, because one on my friends already spilled soda on some cards, but they were protected so all is well.

If you like the Gears of War video games, then you will appreciate this take on the series. To start off, this game is set in the time frame of Gears 1&2. This is a 1-4 player game that "could" take from 1-3+ hours to complete depending on the mission selected. In the box you will find: instruction manual, mission reference sheet, plastic figures, attack and defense dice, 17 double-sided map tiles, a large deck of cards, and a small deck of cards.

Setup can be a little time consuming but oh well. Players start by choosing a soldier from Delta squad (Marcus Fenix, Dominic Santiago, Damon Baird, Augustus Cole). Each soldier has his own starting weapons and ammo as shown on the character card. Each soldier also has his own special ability. For example Baird can carry 5 weapons instead of 4. Next we shuffle the Order cards and Random weapon cards and place them on the reference sheet. The reference sheet is just a nice way to organize all the cards throughout the game. Now we choose from one of the seven missions. On each mission card, it will list up to three different enemy types that will appear on the map. We grab the corresponding enemy character cards and AI cards. Also listed on the mission card are the general AI cards. AI cards control enemy movement and attacks. Flipping the mission card over reveals the location cards used in this mission. These cards tell us which map tiles we are going to use and, after shuffling them together, what order they will be placed. There can be up to 3 levels in a mission but normally only one level is set up at a time. On the bottom of the location cards, it says what enemies are going to spawn based on how many people are playing. And finally, we place our plastic COG characters on the map entrance and draw our order cards.

Let me say off the bat, I am not a fan of Gears of War the Video Game. I have nothing against it, I am just not a fan of First/Third Person shooters. I have played it a few times to understand it is basically your Aliens/HALO/40K type humans vs. the alien Horde romp. What I do like is the quality of Fantasy Flight's board games and I'm a sucker for Dungeon crawls (esp. Sci Fi themed) like Space Hulk, Warhammer Quest and Castle Ravenloft, to name a few. Gears of War was on my watch list and I picked it up when I saw it on deep discount here on Amazon ... Getting a $70+ FFG game for less than 40 was too good to pass up.

My quick review of the game:

It's a slightly different spin on the crawler boardgame ... you are more or less compelled to take bold actions every turn, else you will get crushed in the unending wave of aliens, who are not anywhere near as squishy as you are. The basic mechanic is that your hand of cards is your bank of actions and your life. You can discard a card and take a basic action like move or perform a basic attack. or you can do what is on the card (in order, with little or no modifications) and hopefully have a big turn, but you must keep enough cards in your hand to soak damage, react to attacks and help your allies out when they need a hand. This game is divided into areas as opposed to the common grid, so movement, range and line of sight are a bit atypical (kudos for a line of sight ruler for determining LOS, instead of counting squares).

Love this game, the game boards or levels look amaxing, the miniatures look amazing, and very high production, the only problem I have is I wish Fantasy Flight would release more mission packs, or allow another company to pick up this license to this franchise. The game play is great, and the enemy A.I is brilliant, theres never a turn where the enemy does nothing, there constantly either moving and attacking or spawning new enemy's on the board. Great game, but needs new material or publisher

GM-less co-op? Constantly dynamic maps? Detailed figures and quick turns? Solitaire mode? Sure, you've heard it all before, but this time, you've actually FOUND it! CoreyK & FFG's 'Gears Of War: The Board Game' has instantly risen to be one of my most favourite games, purely on the *delivered* promise of real co-op. A bit more direct and far less lengthy° than 'Arkham Asylum', this has become an instant hit amongst my gaming friends and family because truly, everyone can play: everyone can help set up the map without getting an advantage over any other player; everyone can resolve combat phases by rolling for the enemy Locust Horde while still taking action and rolling for their own characters on their own turns; the shuffled cards leave everyone wondering what will happen next. By the second round of turns, everyone had figured out the flow of their hand and gameplay was speeding up.

'Gears' or not, this is a superbly crafted war game simulator, something that isn't 'Warhammer 40K' long but never dull, either! The AI system in particular is just brilliant, offering simple mechanics that result in massive overall effect, making it easy to implement, but complex enough to surprise and thrill you, too! The closest games that comes to mind: this combines the randomly-generated map-building of 'Betrayal At House On The Hill' with an almost 'D20 Modern'-esque combat rule system, creating a game that is a perfect hour-long roflstomp for a gaming group. It's even fun on your own, as I read the 1P notes so much, I had to try it! It's also very modular, meaning you can play to a certain point, then "save game" for another time, because each mission is nicely split up in setup and objectives (as is the map-generation, as a result).
