New Games for April 15, 2022 - I Guess This Audacious Cow Might Be A Tussie

Jason Tagmire

It's New Game Friday! David Wiley (Cardboard Clash) is here to tell us about the new games.

Here’s what is new this week:

        • Cows vs. Zombies
        • Four Against Darkness - Audacious Adversaries
        • I Guess This Is It

        Audacious Adversaries


        Audacious Adversaries is a supplement for Four Against Darkness for parties of level 5-9. It features new monsters, new retainers, special features and unique treasures. Featuring: Zombie and Silver Sigbins, Creeping Kapres, Green Genies, Sentient Floating Fireballs, Maggot Warriors, Scarred Scarecrows, Corpse Golems, Cavalier Ghouls, Werehippos, Taunting Tiyanaks, Viridian Spiders, Polychromatic Dragons, plus 6 New Trap Rooms, 6 New Special Features, 12 New Magic and Unique Items, 6 Useless Items, 10 new retainers (Veteran Bodyguard, Eye Surgeon, Treasure Expert, Decoy, Fungi Fighter, Orc Negotiator, Wizard’s Assistant, Chronicler, Curse Neutralizer and Dungeon Runner) and 8 Quick Encounters for short sessions. You need Four Against Darkness and Four Against the Abyss to use this book. While designed with expert parties in mind, Audacious Adversaries may be used for lower levels with minimal alterations.


        Not for the low-level adventuring party (although it can be flexed toward lower levels!), this supplement provides some really awesome stuff to expand your Four Against Darkness experience. If you don’t know the difference between a Silver Sigbin and a Creeping Kapres, you might want to pick this up to develop the world you’re playing in. I reckon the Quick Encounters themselves make this worth the price of admission for the supplement, as shorter sessions mean either the game can be played more often, or you can get more adventures in with less time commitment. 


        I Guess This is It


        We had such a good run. We were great together. Now we stand in front of each other, just minutes before our last goodbye. There’s so much to say. And so much we know will be left unsaid.


        If you enjoy the experience of a game - the immersion of theme, the stories it has to tell - moreso than pushing for maximizing points or slaying hordes of plastic miniatures…then you won’t want to miss this unique title. You’ll be playing cards, sure, and connecting them to try and get bonuses along the way. But those are more in the form of unlocking more fragments of a conversation, and then reflecting at the end on the things left unsaid. If you think board games are just boring euros or dungeon crawls, then I Guess This Is It will be here to challenge your expectations with something truly special.


        Cows vs Zombies


        It's the zombie apocalypse! And you are a cow!

        The farmers are hiding in the Barn, so it is up to you and your sisters to save this place and live to chew another day!

        If that doesn’t make you immediately interested in the game, then maybe you need to check your pulse. Who wouldn’t be curious about playing a cow during the zombie apocalypse? Intended as a light-hearted, easy-to-learn game for all ages, this will have you launching milk missiles or methane mist at the waves of zombies as you work together with your fellow cows to defend the farm. The grass may be greener on the other side, but now is your chance to teach these zombies that it is your pasture they are entering…

        Game of the Week: Rube


        Reuben “Rube” Goldberg was an American cartoonist, sculptor, author, engineer, and inventor, remembered today for his cartoons depicting needlessly elaborate contraptions that perform simple tasks. These intricate collections of springs, marbles, pulleys, and countless other components are at once pointless and fascinating, silly and inspiring.

        A favorite thing of mine in 2-player gaming is when you have multi-use cards and are facing the tough decision of how to use them most effectively. This somewhat has it, with a 9-card game where you take turns adding a card to the 3x3 grid. The catch? The orientation that the card is played determines who uses the action of the card and who scores the points on the card. That has to be as delightful of a decision as it sounds, with quick gameplay to rival other Button Shy 2-player greats such as Circle the Wagons for passing that small window of time together.
