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:
- Pumpkin Problem
- Shades of Ink
Trick-or-treating is in grave danger. You can feel it in your bones: someone in the neighborhood is a monster! Can you save Halloween and find the missing candy?
This might be a new type of print-and-play game to feature here. Sure, it’s all festive and whatnot with the timing of Halloween, but let’s face it: you’re intrigued by the concept of an 18-card escape room game that you can pick up and print. I don’t want to spoil anything here, but I can tell you that things have been laid out on the files so that you can, hopefully, avoid spoiling things for yourself. Grab that coworker who has no interest in these and have them cut and assemble the deck for you if you really want to keep it intact. Just remember, above all, to have fun.
Build your own Mecha and battle it out with another player.
If you enjoy head-to-head dueling games, then this is going to be right up your alley. You’ll be playing cards onto your Mecha, granting it arm and leg abilities to help you defend or, hopefully, to attack and damage your opponent for points. Destroy a part and you get it into your VP pile. Do enough damage and you’ll win! It is simple, fast-flowing, and a whole lot of fun - especially since you can save back arms to defend and, if the right type of arm defends the attack, it could possibly reduce that damage. But you also need a leg to defend, so don’t forget about leg day…
Shades of Ink
You weren't supposed to see them, the weathered cards with strange inkblots. You didn't know the ink would curl and writhe as you looked at them. You tell yourself it's a nightmare, but the Shades you see are real... and they can see you too.
An interesting premise as a solo RPG told with only a few cards. When playing, you’ll get the chance to define the particular Shade you are encountering. This happens by a unique pair of prompts as well as an image, and it is up to you how to interpret these, as well as how to play out the encounter. Let your imagination run wild, telling of adventures that bring the storylines to life. Or just think of things in a practical way, coming up with a solution that is grounded in sensibility. The choice is yours, and only you can determine the right or wrong way to go about this unique encounter.
Game of the Week: Mindburners - on sale for $5!
Mindburners is a cyber-occult dungeon runner game for 1-4 players. As void runners, players must push their luck and enter the void to gather resources, thwart their opponents, battle horrific foes, and seal the breach, closing the void forever.
Forget running in the Net, you want to run in the Void. In this competitive game there’s a deck of cards that all players will need to overcome, and there are things you can do to help your player prepare for it. Survive better than the others and you’ll score more points, allowing you to achieve victory first. Yet every choice has some degree of risk tied to it, and the more you risk the harder you might fall. A fun, fast press-your-luck game of head-to-head competition that also comes with a really interesting solo mode to play.
