Eat Hitler!

Eat Hitler!

Postby dadlamassu » 06 Apr 2015

Just had a great game with our three grandsons - EAT HITLER. Pure escapism and the kids loved it. Only Callum (age 7) had a vague understanding of the plot. Aiden (almost 5) and Nathan (4) were happy to have dinos eat baddies. A rummage in the lead pile found a model Hitler and a pack of Nazi females. The toy box yielded lots of dinosaurs and 4 were not painted or were garish and so I repainted them. Saturday evening, some of Sunday afternoon and all of Sunday evening produced a game setting and enough time for a bit of painting in Brown!

Children's version of the scenario: The Baddies (Nazis) are getting beaten by the Goodies (Allies) and they have escaped in a flying saucer. The Flying saucer was hit by a solar flare and went back in time to Jurassic times (yes I know the dinos are from the Cretaceous but blame Hollywood). The Goody Dinosaurs see the Baddies as a snack and try to eat them.

These models were painted just for this game and the colour scheme selected for this speed build!

We certainly did. Lots of laughter and cheering as each baddy got eaten.

What the mummies did not know (until later) was that there were chocolate mini eggs in little nests of 3 hidden in the undergrowth to share when they were found. And a small chocolate bunny for the dino that ate a baddy! And a few more left over to share so that everyone got the same!

Great idea and looks like lots of fun especially with the added chocolate incentive!

There's a great episode of Danger 5 featuring Nazi Dinosaurs.

I'm going to borrow this idea.

Thanks for the inspiration.
