Much Ado About Eruption

"[Eruption is] as good as it gets, people! Stratus Games has got a hit on their hands and I simply cannot wait to get this game to the table when it’s finally released in all of its professionally published and produced glory!" - Father Geek

This is what one reviewer had to say after playing a print-and-play version of Stratus Games' newest title, Eruption. The do-it-yourself print-and-play version was also provided to several other interested reviewers, and they have had similar things to say:

"Eruption has all the elements of a great family game. Easy to understand rules, bright colors, an interesting theme, and simple game play with just enough luck and strategy to keep players of all ages interested...most gamers young, old, novice, and experienced will find it to be an enjoyable experience." - Games and Grub

"It’s fast and fun, it looks’s simple to learn and teach but it allows for tactical and strategic decisions to be made by players." - Unboxed

"Eruption is a fun game that while easy to learn and on the lighter end of the spectrum, has a good amount of depth and replay value to it – thus making it a good intro game to the hobby but also one that I imagine will become a favorite at my game table." - BGG Reviewer

Eruption will be hitting the shelves at hobby game stores worldwide during the second half of October. It will debut at the largest game convention in the world, SPIEL 2011 in Essen, Germany, during October 20 to 23. Those attending the show can find it at booth number 12-86.
