- No Good Gremlins
This week's new games are all available at https://www.pnparcade.com/collections/new-games
Chunky Fighters MX: Mega Chunky Expansion
In Chunky Fighters, humorous characters fight it out in an all-or-nothing brawl. Players choose their fighters, then roll them to determine hit points and weapons. Each fighter is composed of four dice — head, body, legs, and weapon — along with a unique special ability card. Combat involves rolling damage and hit location dice. As fighters take damage, you rotate their body parts to show the remaining hit points until they're finally destroyed.
In addition to the standard attack, players can choose to change weapons, perform first aid, disarm an opponent, or make called shots for increased damage. Be the last fighter standing to win the game!
Chunky Fighters MX features four outrageous new fighters to add to your army:
- Slime Tower
- Space Ranger
Who doesn’t like more of a good thing? This expansion contains everything you need to add four more fighters to your collection, along with a tuck box to store those fighters. The werewolf can shift between a “harmless” girl and a dangerous werewolf. The skeleton gains HP every time another fighter takes damage. The space ranger can protect another fighter at the cost of being unable to attack. And the slime tower is frustratingly difficult to kill, as all three of its parts need to be destroyed. Add these unique fighters to your collection!
Movie Plotz: Cult Films
Movie Plotz is a wild game that allows your group to create hilarious fake movie story lines, then pitch them out loud for maximum laughs. It is designed to be the ultimate social game, party game and ice-breaker game. Sessions can last anywhere from 10 minutes to an hour, depending on your group's needs. If you have gaming group, a group of family and friends, or some co-workers looking for fun during their free time, the game is a hilarious stress reliever and conversation starter. Try Movie Plotz with hardcore gamers, improv comedians or children of any age and be amazed by the results.
If sitting at a table coming up with increasingly-embellished stories sounds like an ideal way to spend time, then this game is perfect for you. Also, this might just be the perfect thing to add to any writer’s toolbox to help break through the nasty writer’s block, or to help spice up your stories. The concept here is simple: begin with a basic sentence containing a subject, verb, and object. Then, you’ll add to the scene by adding what your card directs, such as adding a talking animal, eliminating a character in a creative way, or to make the movie worse. Fully compatible with the other Movie Plotz entries, this also contains a Last Man Screenwriting variant for 6+ players to allow large groups to get in on the fun - and the other players can vote you out if your pitch isn’t up to par, adding some pressure to perform in a creative way.
No Good Gremlins
It's Rocket Festival in Junktown! This is the time of year when the mayor awards medals to everyday folks for building and launching rockets using the abundant scrap lying around town. Everyone loves Rocket Festival, but no one loves it more than those hungry little gremlins. That's because there are tons of tasty rockets to munch! As soon as you think you have a prize-winning rocket, a horde of ravenous gremlins just might sweep through and leave you with nothing! So launch those rockets fast, because when the festival ends, whoever has the best medal collection wins!
No Good Gremlins is a family card game for two to five players. Use your turn to start construction on new rockets or build up the ones you already have. Completed rockets can be launched for points, but the bigger the rocket, the more points it will earn. Be careful though! The longer you wait to launch a rocket, the greater the chance it will be eaten by gremlins.
I mean, who doesn’t automatically think of Rockets when they hear the word “Gremlin”? This unique game is all about building the most valuable rockets you can while avoiding catastrophe. A Wandering Gremlin will eat your highest-value material on your rocket if it is in front of you, but you can also trade with it or bribe it for actions. Each round gremlins are likely to come out, and once there’s a matching set of gremlins they’ll remove all of a material type from the game and, if it happens to be what you are using to build one of your three rockets you are out of luck. With simple gameplay mechanics and plenty of press-your-luck element prevalent, this game for 2-5 will offer some fast and furious family fun.

Game of the Week: Paper Pinball: Wolf Hackers
Paper Pinball is a dice game that tries to capture the feeling of playing pinball. All you will need is a pencil, three dice, and about five minutes.
I know that feeling. That sheer excitement bubbling up to the surface as you see another entry in the Paper Pinball series featured here. I’m with you, friend: this is way more fun than a 5 minute roll-and-write should be. This game system is the perfect way to pass a few spare moments, and the fun theme of Wolf Hackers is sure to delight. If you haven’t tried a Paper Pinball entry yet, there is no better time than now.
