Dinosaurs = Fun!

I am considering adding them as a dice-driven AI opponent for my Army Men rules, if I re-publish them. They should be easy to run by a few simple dice rolls, attacking Army Men figures controlled by a solo player. Victim's screams optional, but highly recommended, for dramatic effect. ;-) Cheers!

Reminds me of the old "Bob & Tom" Japanese tourist and Godzilla bit. 🙂

I don't play games with dinosaurs. They are deadly animals and must be treated with the utmost caution.

I don't play with Hussars, Wehrmacht, or modern frigates.

Are you sure each of the above are in the games of more than a quarter of the members?

I suggest a comment of 'you don't play…' might well be answered with 'get a rope.'

Oh, hell, I did play some German WWII recently…

23% is certainly more than I would have guessed.

I don't play with dinosaurs… their arms are too short to reach the middle of the table.

Now, GG5, advances in orthopedic gaming appliances have made great strides!

Even T Rex can be found at conventions around the world.

I'm plying a dinosaur game this weekend. .

If you play with dinosaurs do they eat you if they win?
