TableTop Fun: The Manhattan Project

That's right... We're mining minerals and building explosives! Wooo!

From BoardGameGeek:
The Manhattan Project makes you the leader of a great nation's atomic weapons program in a deadly race to build bigger and better bombs. You must assign your workers to multiple projects: building your bomb-making infrastructure, expending your military to protect it, or sending your spies to steal your rival's hard work!
I love this game! Yes, the theme is... controversial? But it's presented really well. I don't usually post pictures of components but this game is really nice.

I'm a sucker for nice components and The Manhattan Project is fantastic. Extremely thick cardboard pieces representing your workers. Awesome graphics that put a softer edge to the topic of building bombs. I don't think I've mastered the game play yet but I've had a ton of fun playing it. There's air strikes, espionage, bomb tests... LOVE it! 

Sadly, this was played around the time that Emma had the bed falling incident.. her nose is a little rough. :P
