Escape from Monster Island heads to printer

The sequel to Firefly Games’ Monster Island is headed for the printer, and should be available by late November. The new book, Escape from Monster Island, will supplement the main game with 32 pages of info on “fighting military units and crushing cities.” The expanded rules will allow players to control military forces battling the monsters, so be sure to work on your badly-dubbed Japanese accent. Monsters will have new powers to choose from, since now they’ll be dealing with tanks and planes. As with the first book, color cardstock counters will be included, though the plastic toys you’ve collected over the years will work even better. All this for just $9.95? Get Gamera and Mothra out of the garage; it’s time to throw down.
