What are your thoughts on thishttp://www.boardgamegeek.com/boardgame/87141/scrumbrawl
Look interesting, but no sold on the cardboard cutouts for "miniatures". Wish I had $40 to throw at it and see, but not willing to take that gamble right now when there are so many good minis out there I want to buy and not enough people around me to play the games I already play.
Looks to be more of a card game than a board game. No doubt it's lots of fun, but I tend to agree with you in that there are other things I would rather chance my dollars on...
