IDW Games' Atari Missile Command Board Game

In early 2017 I heard about a set of Atari board games coming to market based on the arcade games of the 1980s. I had previously ordered Centipede from Amazon and decided to pick up the Missile Command game as well. It was released bu IDW in 2018.

I liked the flow of Centipede much better. Missile Command feels a bit too forced, as though it wasn't as good a fit as a board game.
