Space Invaders

I noticed Space Invader Dice! is coming out soon. I couldn’t help but be interested even as I feel I am being manipulated with nostalgia.

When I was a kid, arcade games were at their height. You could go almost anywhere and they would have at least one box of flashing lights. In fact some places still had pinball machines.

Space invaders was one of the best. Even today I would probably enjoy it because something about the game play is timelessly fun. It’s really satisfying to kill that last enemy in the wave.

I could see buying this board game, admiring all the pieces, but then putting it away on the shelf. Really, I should just buy a Space Invaders poster or something, but what if it’s actually fun? It would be nice to see Space Invaders  revitalized.
