Buffy board game resources

A page devoted to collecting information about Milton Bradley's Buffy the
Vampire Slayer board game. As far as I know it's out of print, so go to eBay.
(Although I'm told it's also at stores like "KB Toys".)
"I think games often *sound* complicated, but aren't really. Imagine
trying to describe Monopoly to somebody who had no clue what you were
talking about. You could say, "Well, you move around the board and buy
stuff, then you make the other players go bankrupt." Well, with Buffy,
you move around the board and pick up stuff to help you fight the bad
(or good) guys, then you kill them." -- (post had no name, just an e-mail)
The Old FAQ
Q: Is the game interesting to people who aren't fans of the show?
A: Yes. A large corpus of Usenet testimony, and the experience of my own
roommate, testify to the game being interesting both to gamer non-fans and to
fans who aren't usual gamers. Also note that there are two Buffy games, the
other one being British, and the word on that seems to be as negative as the
opinions on the US version are positive. So fans can tell when some spinoff
sucks, despite being fans.
