			  by Brian Bell

I grew up watching monster movies every Friday night. Hundreds of happy
hours spent watching
Godzilla, Rhodan, Gamara, and others destroy Tokyo (over and over
again). [Thank you, Fritz!] Below is a
way to relive those care free days.

Rember, all this is in fun! All rules should be taken with a grain of

Special thanks to for his Blob Scenario that provided
incentive to write this.


     1.All Giant Rubber Monsters (GRM's) are size 7 (700?).
     2.Due to the toughness of GRM's they get a 2nd die for defence
against all attacks except from
       other GRM's (Die type will vary with the GRM).
     3.As normal if the attacking unit rolls higher than the GRM's
defence roll, it will draw a number of
       chits equal to the strength of the weapon. If the valid chits
total exceeds the armor rating of the
       GRM, it is a successful attack.
     4.Unlike normal DS2 units, GRM's get a number of Incentive Points
(IP). Since most GRM's are
       indestructable, IP represents the amount of incentive that a GRM
has to continue an attack.
	   4.1.On a successful hit by a DS2 unit (other than a GRM), a
GRM will loose ONE IP regardless
	      of the strength of the attack. GRM's ignore special chits.

	   4.2.When a GRM runs out of IP, it must break off the attack
and attempt to leave the board.
	   4.3.A GRM is immune to anti-personnele fire.
	   4.4.GRM attacks against GRM's do damage to incentive points
equal to the total of all chits
	      minus the armor rating of the attacked GRM.
     5.GRM's physical attacks use a d12. If a GRM has a ranged weapon,
the attack die will vary.
     6.GRM's are generally immune to biochem attacks except from other
