Owlman is a game of unequal forces. Doc and twelve helpers are trying to infiltrate Owlman's lair. Doc needs at least one helper to set up his cryptozoolgical camera to gather photographic evidence of his existence! Owlman is trying to thwart Doc by scaring off all of his helpers. And whatever you do, don't let Owlman make it to the church bell tower. From there he can fly anywhere!

abdekker 2 Great fun, especially fun to play as Owlman. Gets sticky for Owlman if Doc manages to spread his helpers quickly throughout the board. Gets sticky for Doc if Owlman can peg him back and scare his helpers away from a distance! Excellent.

Draw5PlayAll 1 Interesting unequal forces game. Doc requires a lot of strategy and planning, whereas Owl-man needs some tactics and speed.

nycavri 1 Not sure how balanced this is, but I'm enjoying finding out!
Zotmeister 1 A decent "Ogre Effect" game with a surprising depth of study.
goulo 0 OK idea but didn't grab me. It was still under development as I played, and the current form where there is a (long) time limit # of turns is aesthetically unpleasing to me.
