watched Tony Blair or President Bush fumbling their way through
a press briefing and thought to yourself "I could do
their job"? Well now you can thanks to Abel Games. The
Earth is in danger (it could be nuclear war, alien invasion

gives you the chance to find out whether or not you have the
guts to succeed when it counts. We have been playing this
in the office for a week now (I still can't believe we get

one slight complaint is that, to begin with, the instructions
are a little on the complicated side and I felt like we needed
a member of MENSA in the room just to get started. Luckily
our Editor was at hand to sort everyone out. Mind you it wasn't
long before we realised he hadn't actually read the instructions
properly and was actually just pretending he knew what was
going on (like any good politician).
we cracked it we had a great time (mainly because several
people were banished from the room for openly cheating) and
we eventually rid our planet from a swarm of invading aliens.
presentation of this game is wonderful, with a huge hardback
map of the earth as your arena (see below) and a collection
of plastic planes as your counters.
