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:
- Twin Raiders
- Pim Pam
- Dungeon Pages: Sygrid, Banished Hunter
In Twin raiders you will have to explore and find the best path to reach the idols hidden in the lost temple. In this strategy game you will compete with another player to be the first to find all the idols. You will have to be quick to take advantage of all the opportunities that arise during the game.
A game where you are racing to try and be the first to grab all 6 idols from the map, and to accomplish this you’ll be either moving pawns or sliding map cards to adjust the available paths. The twist here is that each idol also requires a matching switch/button to be pressed to access it, so you (or your opponent) needs to have someone on that switch in order for another pawn to access the idol. Those idols can be used to trigger powerful effects, such as extra actions for yourself or lowering the number of actions your opponent will take on the next turn. There’s bound to be a lot of interfering with each others’ plans in this one, which makes it perfect for those who really enjoy high player interaction in a game.
Pim Pam is a ping pong themed card game that's quick to learn and quick to play. It's perfect for when you only have a few minutes but want to have some fun. The 18 cards fit easily into your pocket or purse so you can take it anywhere!
Two players are matched up against each other and compete in a fast game of ping pong. Players take turns playing a card from their hand. You can only play a card if it is one less, the same, or one more than the card in play. If you're unable to play a card your opponent scores a point. First to 5 points wins!
A simple game of timing with your play of a card. The concept is easy: you play a card that is the same number, or one higher or lower, than the current card on the Play deck. If you cannot do so, your opponent scores a point. First to earn five points will win. If you enjoy fast-moving games with an easy ruleset to learn so that you can dive right into the gameplay, you won’t want to miss out on this little card game.
Dungeon Pages: Sygrid, Banished Hunter
When her temper took things too far, Sygrid found herself sent away from the tribe. She now searches for redemption by offering her axe in service of the Elders. In exchange they promise to teach her meditation. So far, she’s only smashed two desks. Ok, three.
What a wonderful new addition here, especially for those who enjoy snakes (destroying them is so satisfying!) as you get to take down a Snake God in this one. Explore these areas within the desert locale of Lariss. The Sliding Wall trap in this one will create a fun puzzle for navigating effectively through each map, as no one will want to take extra damage along the way. Plus this character is just going to be fun to play, with an interesting ability and some cool items to unlock along the way. Like many of you, I’m ready to rejoice in having the next weekly installment available!
Game of the Week: Deck 52: Space Wrecked
A spaceship wrecked (darn pirates!) and the only location your escape pod can reach is a huge derelict hulk. Try to survive and find your way to a rescue shuttle.
A clever little game, where you can play either one floor, or make it a campaign to reach floor 52 - with each successful clearing moving you up 1-7 floors while failure moves you down one. Cards are multiuse and help form your map as you explore, trigger events, and more along the way. Survive to find success, but if you fail you’re going to run out of air rather quickly while stranded in the big black of space. A solo exploration adventure that is sure to keep you playing time and time again, and can even be played using a standard deck of playing cards.
