Flick Your Way to World Domination in Mars Attacks: Ten-Minute Takedown

ten minute take down If you were around in 1996, you probably remember a little movie named Mars Attacks.  Directed by Tim Burton and based on a trading card game of the same name (the first movie-based-on-a-trading-card-game I know of...), the movie featured an all-star cast and tells the story of a failed Martian invasion of earth.  As we approach the 20th anniversary of the movie, we are seeing this intellectual property spawn a number of new board games.  Recently released Mars Attacks: The Dice Game, from Steve Jackson Games, is going to be joined by Mars Attacks: Ten-Minute Takedown in April next year.  According to the forthcoming announcement:
Mars Attacks: Ten Minute Takedown is a fast-playing dexterity game of Martian aggression and global destruction.  Flick the custom die from your flying saucer at the earthling cities, and claim their points as you destroy them.  It's easy to learn, and the evocative art is sure to grab attention.
If you like flicking dice, or perhaps identified with those poor, unsuccessful Martians from the movie, this is going to be a game to watch for.  Be on the lookout for an official announcement next week.
