Table Top Tuesdays: Moongha Invaders & Monsters Menace America
As our collection is now over 1400 board games we felt the need to create another day during the week that we are able to teach games from our collection. This allows us to learn more about what we have on our shelf as well as add another day for teaching.

About the event
As our collection is now over 1400 board games we felt the need to create another day during the week that we are able to teach games from our collection.
This allows us to learn more about what we have on our shelf as well as add another day for teaching.
Moongha Invaders: 6.6
It's just another day, get up, wash, go to work. What's different is that today the Earth has been invaded by aliens – it's just that nobody knows it yet. Deep underground mad scientists are raising monsters from the planet Moongha. Once fully formed they will emerge to spread terror and destruction. Cities will be laid waste to, and the human race will be hunted to extinction.
Through the sewers oozes the Bloob, quietly growing in size. The Drakoor, alien vampires, stalk the night, feeding off the unwary. Meanwhile, the strongest of the Moongha invaders, Mechoor, sucks in energy from the earth. Once sated it will rise to destroy whole cities with its heat ray. These are just a few of the monsters that will terrorize the people of Earth.
It can only be hoped that just as in the movies there's a hero around who can thwart their evil plans; otherwise, there will be no more "just another day" for anybody! But who's behind those evil plans? You! You are one of those sadistic, power-thirsty, psycho nerds, eager for revenge after a whole life of study, disregarded by everyone. All of you have received a visit from a mysterious flying saucer, carrying strange alien machinery – an engine that finally brought you POWER! And now you are ready to fight your insane struggle to be the first to destroy the human race. This time no "Klaatu barada nikto!" will stop you...
Monsters Menace America: 6.0
As a giant monster, stomping cities is what you do. But now, other giant monsters are moving in on your turf - and you have to put a stop to that. Through a bizarre twist of fate, a branch of the military has decided to focus all its firepower on the other monsters. While your rivals are busy trampling tanks and swatting fighter jets, you'll be out there growing in power and infamy - getting ready for the Monster Challenge. In the end, when the dust settles and the radiation fades, the last creature standing will be crowned King of the Giant Monsters!
Each player is one of six Giant Monsters, stomping across a map of the USA in search of cities to destroy. The monsters run the gamut from the classic (enormous lizards and gargantuan apes) to the slightly more unconventional (giant walking eyeball), and each has its own set of attributes and powers.
Ingeniously, everyone also controls an arm of the military, which can be used to attack and weaken the other monsters on the board. It's a losing battle for the militia -- monsters can wipe out military bases and reduce the total number of forces available to each player -- but you can get a few good licks in early in the game. The battle escalates until the 20th city is reduced to rubble. At that time, all the monsters duke it out in a free-for-all, mano-a-claw Monster Challenge; when the dust settles, the last monster standing is declared the winner.
This game is a reworking of Monsters Ravage America.
Join us as we dive into the deep end of our Board Game Collection on Table Top Tuesdays this Tuesday at 6 p.m.
