Army Of Zero, from
Point Zero Games, is two games in one. Firstly, it's a card and dice game
in which two players pit their team of warriors against each other. Players
use their judgement to pick the right character to use at the right time,
and second-guess their opponent to choose when to attack and when to
defend. The game is designed to be quick and easy to both learn and play,
encouraging children and their parents to play together. You can learn the
game in five minutes, and play it in fifteen, so parents can get into the
game easily and play it with their children.
But Army of Zero
also holds a secret. The deck of eighty-four character cards hides a series
of puzzles and the person who submits the best solution before the closing
date will win a cash prize. The puzzles are aimed at older children and
adults, so the game can be enjoyed by older and younger generations alike.

available at pointzerogames for
an introductory price of £10.00. It's also available on

A new game to play for both adults and children. The game is
for 2 players but we were able to work it to a tournament so everyone
got a turn at playing. The children picked up the rules fairly
easily although we did have to keep referring to them. I
personally would have preferred the rules to have been on a piece of
paper rather than on cards but that was a personal preference and
doesn't harm game play at all. The box comes complete with the
cards and dice. Each card has 4 components speed, combat,
weapon and armour. Using the dice to add to these scores is great
because it becomes so much more random and you cant really plan your
army. Once we picked the game up the games flowed better and we
were able to get a match going quite easily. My children love
clans and army style computer games so it was exciting playing for them
to be doing a pokemon style card game instead.
The second part of this game is the
puzzle. We didn't really get very far with this for the review but
no doubt my husband and sons will attempt this further as I am sure
curiosity will get the better of them.
This is a calm
game to play and doesn't take up too much space either boxed nor when
playing which is a bonus.
I believe this makes a lovely
present for any young man. young or old!!! Perhaps even a
Fathers Day present as I am sure they would get caught up in playing
with their children and trying to solve the puzzles within the cards.
