When Polar Bears Attack...

I dreamt of designing a board game last night which was about Polar Bears invading and running rampant in London destroying cars. They wore armour and carried machine guns and were basically fighting to stop mankinds attempts to boost global warming by creating ever more pollution.

One player played the military/police whilst the other the Polar Bear hordes.

It seemed quite fun :)

Sounds like a great idea.

Of course in some campaign worlds it would be Killer Penguins.
Communist Killer Penguins.
Communist Psychic Killer Penguins.
Communist Psychic Hive Mind Killer Penguins.
Communist Psychic Hive Mind Killer Penguins with Machine Guns.

I did love Technomancer.

I seem to recall Killer Penguins from Greg Costikyan's games Swords & Sorcerery from the seventies. They were damn scary.

Yes, the game with the two forested areas called the "Evelyn Wood" and the "Natalie Wood" with the "Stream of Consciousness".

There was a board game published in White Wolf magazine a few years ago about demonic seals taking over the world and having to be stopped by seal hunters.

Sort of the inverse of that game, yah.

Why? Did they have polar bears with guns?

(Haven't seen it - although Delphine did mention she was going to buy me Season 1 for a Christmas or Birthday present at somepoint)

Not ones with guns. But a polar bear on an island, supposedly in the pacific is quite some feat.

[Apologies for crashing the thread]

I thought they just put that in 'cos someone had heard the old gag "What do you call a polar bear in the jungle?"

Phillip Pullman would sue you back to the Stone Age.

Yeah, it struck me a bit too close to the armoured bears in HDM :p

So instead use Badgers as shock troops and foxes as skirmish/scouts. You could turn it in to a miniatures game and make squillions.

I think you should rig it up like the GW rip off of Car Wars from '88 (EGADS! I'M OLD!!!) What was that, Dark Future?

Anyway, you've got the bears, and the army of cars, there's no reason not to drill a couple of ports in the back of each fig and kit them out with weapons of choice.

A polar bear packing twin-linked autofire grenade launchers would be a hoot.

Pah!

Already done it, only when WE did it we had chainsaw wielding racoons against baseball bat wielding polarbears.
