Review: Last Night on Earth – A great intro to Ameritrash.

Prologue

My first experience with Flying Frog games came after picking up A Touch of Evil (AToE) over a year ago. I was looking for something in the horror realm, but simple enough to be able able to play with my, then, girlfriend. Unfortunately after a few solo plays and a couple plays with my other gaming partner, I realized that it just wasn’t the experience I was looking for.

At this point you might be asking yourself “Then why did you pick up Last Night on Earth?” OK, maybe you’re not asking yourself that, but it would be a valid question if you were! During one of our game nights, the subject of Last Night on Earth (LNoE) type games came up and I mentioned that I really didn’t enjoy AToE, although maybe I was just missing something or needed to play more of the advanced scenarios. To my surprise I was told that they are two very different games and I should get LNoE a try.

Luckily the game was available on Borders.com, so I was able to use a coupon and my rewards plus discount to get it for pretty much nothing! That already made it a winner in my book.

The majority of games I get to play with Lisa are of the lighter fare, with the exception of a few “multiplayer solitaire” games such as At the Gates of Loyang, Dominion and San Juan (yes, Dominion and San Juan can probably be played much more interactively, but we tend to just do our own thing). Because of this, if we are playing a game that presents us with option of screwage, we tend to take the high road and be friendly to the other player. Unfortunately this limits the types of games that hit the table. Here’s where Summoner Wars comes into play…
