Board Game Rank: Not Ranked


Tie-in game for the first Spider-Man movie. Players roll a die to move around board collecting power tokens. If they land on a battle square, they draw a battle card and follow the instructions--most, if not all, cards call for one or more power tokens to be discarded. Once a player has a set of all five tokens they may attempt to enter the central track to fight the Green Goblin. This is accomplished by using a special piece of apparatus: the Battle Wall. This consists of a 3-D office building with a spinner attached to the base. The spinner is spun and a button in the center is pressed whenever the player wishes. The button causes either Spider-Man or the Green Goblin to pop out of one side or the other of the building. If Spider-Man comes out, the game is over and that player wins. If the Green Goblin comes out, the player must make one more circuit of the board before they may try again. Youngest player moves first, according to the rules, so perhaps there's a very slight German influence here?

For a kid's game this is actually pretty decent. I would prefer playing this with my six-year-old over most of his other games! I certainly wouldn't recommend it for adults though.

5 year old boys loves this game (they'd rate it a 10). One has worn out his copy and wants another. Basically a light roll-and-move game with a little screwage in stealing cards from the other players.

This is a terrible game. Roll dice move, roll dice move. It is the somewhat similar to something like chutes and ladders only it is harder to get to the end. Random cards/dice rolling keep preventing anyone from winning for a long time. About zero strategy and decision making.

My 6 yr old really enjoys this one, and it's quick and painless for me too.

I may still own it somewhere, haven't touched it since I was a kid.
