Game Review: Pompeii

Today we will review The Downfall of Pompeii.
The Downfall of Pompeii is a very fun game that includes lava, escaping, and throwing people into a volcano. The COOLEST part of this game is the 3-D volcano on the board that you throw your opponent's pieces into.

This game has two halves. First you put people into the city, then the volcano erupts - BOOM - and you try to get your people OUT.

The rules in the first half of the game are a little more complicated than necessary and it is not that great, but the second half of the game is a lot more fun. You get to throw people into the volcano, and of course, you are required to scream when your guys burn up. A little violent, maybe, but fun.

Matias gives it: 9.5/10
Helen gives it: 7/10
Game Results: Matias beats Helen 18 to 16. Yea Matias!!!


  1. This is Daniel's favorite game! We bought it for him to take back to Germany! I think you should video review! ;)

  2. Did we introduce this game to you? Because we have the same house rule - give the volcano victim a death rattle!
