Architectural Games

I notced these miniature resin buildngs selling on eBay and had no idea what they were for. Turns out, they are for a game called Monsterpocalypse - a fast-moving team strategy game played with collectible miniatures portraying “the most fearsome giant monsters on Earth.” Structures are figures that provide obstacles and objectives for your monsters. 
The most common structures are buildings. Each battle takes place in a city that you and your opponent construct by placing buildings on a city map. Players choose their forces from their respective collections of figures and then battle one another with giant monsters and supporting units such as tanks, flying vehicles, and all manner of creatures. Charge your monster into the city to fight for supremacy and be the last monster standing. In the photo on the right, players compete at Comic Carnival south in Indianapolis where gaming tournaments are held. Other strategic board games using miniature buildings as game pieces include: Cathedral World and Monumental MovesThese games use 32 monuments depicting buildings, statues, temples and historical sites from around the world. By using strategy and well-structured moves, players try to position their 14 monuments on the playing area bordered by The Great Wall of China, the West Wailing Wall, the Wall of Marrakesh, and the Zimbabwe Ruins. With a combination of precise planning skills, a 'People Piece', and beautifully detailed playing pieces to enjoy, players are intrigued from beginning to the end.
