Starting my own War of the Worlds game

I can't exactly remember why I decided to try and make a War of the Worlds board game. I've scoured my memory to no avail.

Holiday Fever A Family Tradition

Thank you for your help!

What do you think about the Art for the board?
After reading the rules does the game make sense to you?

I have taken the advice of some of the regulars here, recovered from some bruises and updated the game, hired a pro Graphic Designer and cut everything unnecessary. Please take the time to read the rules and give me any advice and feedback that comes to mind.

Thank You.

We added a Sword to our Board Game Pieces Shop! This is made of acrylic and is only available in grey at this time. The sword is just a little too big for the 17mm Meeple, but it gives you an idea of the scale. :)
