Elizalily says:

Hi I'm elizalily I'm nine years old I've never actually played the game but does it actually blow up the house and take you to space and that sort of stuff ?!!!!!!!
Karen says:

Not very detailed instructions to play! My son and I and his friend got it all set up to play and ended up putting it away cuz it didn't thoroughly explain. Please come up with better instructions. One thing we have questions about is how to "defend" when it says on the card. Please respond quickly so we can play this game.
