For Your Consideration: Game of the Year
Drone Home (PlayMonster)
Race to launch your aliens down the ramps and land inside the drone! Watch out — there’s a delay once you make it in, so others can knock you out. If you stay in and your alien escapes when the drone lifts off, you’re one step closer to winning! Get rid of all your aliens first to win. It’s fast-paced fun for the whole family, and it’s the first game to include a real, flying drone.
