What is Terror in Meeple City about?
Terror in Meeple City is a 2-4 player game where you arrive in Meeple City as a gigantic, famished, scaly-skinned monster! Your goal: Dig your claws and dirty paws into the asphalt, destroy buildings, and devour innocent meeples – in short: sow terror while having fun. The monster who has caused the most damage after the carnage finally ends wins the game.
On a turn, players take two actions from four possibilities, with the ability to repeat an action if desired. These consist of:
Move: Pick up your monster body, flick the paws disc, then place the body back on the disc.
Demolish: If your paws are on the sidewalk surrounding a building, you can pick up your monster body, drop it onto a building, then collect any floors that have no meeples on them.
Toss a vehicle: If you’re in a neighborhood with a vehicle, you can pick up the vehicle, place it on your body, then flick the vehicle at a building or another monster.
Breathe: Even while away from sidewalks with no vehicles, you can cause destruction by placing your chin on your monster’s body and blowing across the board.
The game is nearly over when a player gobbles the final Floor or knocks it off the City; this player finishes his turn, then each other player takes one last turn. The game then ends, and players tally their points.
