Wold love to know what would be the best rules to use, to play out all those "B" Rated Monster Movies. fighting giant ants, tarantulas, grasshoppers even giant killer rabbits.

Ganesha Games Mighty Monsters (PDF $8.00 USD)


It comes with a fairly comprehensive list of pre-built "B" monsters including human military forces.

It also comes with a detailed monster building system.

To give you an idea of the size of monsters they deal with battleships are listed as "puny". grin

Depends what you mean by "best"?

Personally, I'd use 7TV or 7th Voyage. YMMV

How do you determine best---most rules options---most or fewest dice??!

Check out 7TV or Pulp Alley with the Island expansion

I think part of the evaluation is whether you want to play it from the POV of the monsters or the humans!

SRBR is good for the monsters, giving them detail while the humans are many and less detailed (platoon of infantry or tanks).

Something like the pulp games above are good for focusing on the humans, with the monsters being the target.

Okay maybe "best" is not the greatest use of words. Maybe it should have been most preferred.

Something like the pulp games above are good for focusing on the humans, with the monsters being the target.

Yup that is what I'm after something where the humans are the main characters and the monsters are the bullet stoppers.

Thanks for all the suggestions I'll have to check them out.

Could "Pulp Alley" support such a gaming?

Mighty Monsters is a really fun set of rules. We played it quite a bit last summer.

That Mighty Monsters looks good, and viable. Thank you for posting that.

SPI's "Creature That Ate Sheboygan" if you can find one.
One player builds a monster such as in the Godzilla movies and the other player has cops, civilians to protect, soldiers and such. Monster player wins by destroying stuff, human player wins by keeping monster from destroying enough.

Hint to monster players: take giant size, you get victory points by falling on buildings and crushing them when you die.
