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:
- Expedition to Skull Island
- Waffle Hassle
- Waffle Hassle: Gourmet Edition
This week's new games are all available at https://www.pnparcade.com/collections/new-games
Waffle Hassle Standard & Gourmet Edition
In Waffle Hassle you’ll try to make the perfect waffle with your favorite toppings! But be careful because you're sharing it so apply the recipe as best as you can. And, of course, the whipped cream is is the most important thing in a waffle! In Waffle Hassle players will choose simultaneously a card and switching hands until all the cards has been played. At the end of the game they will score points based on the toppings they added to the waffle on the middle of the table! This version also adds the brand new Expansion Set the table! and a succulent printable box!
The premise here is really simple: overlap cards onto the central waffle in order to maximize your score based on a unique recipe card for each player. Also, there’s control over the whipped cream, scoring bonus points to the player with the most on their side of the waffle at the end. If you enjoy quick-playing games for 1-2 players that can easily be enjoyed with kids at the breakfast table, but also has enough to keep adults engaged, this one is worth printing out. Just make sure you don’t mistake one of the delicious cards for a real waffle - no matter how tasty it looks, it probably is going to be a disappointing bite. Fans of the standard game? The Gourmet Edition adds an expansion into the mix with a few more cards, and a box you can print to store the game. Don’t miss this one!
Expedition to Skull Island
“That’s worth far more than six pieces of eight,” the old sailor growled across the table. You thought his estimation of the parchment a bit high, but your hand was strong, and in the end, you won the pot and the “treasure map” the poor old sod had put up. It wasn’t until three ruffians jumped you in the alley and tried to steal it that you decided there might be something to this map. And if nothing else, if someone were gunning for your gizzard to get the map back, you might as well take your leave of Tortuga. So you decided to gather your crew, provision the ship, and head out for this ”Skull Island”.
Sail the high seas. Explore uncharted islands and discover new encounters and adventures along the way. Bring along a crew, and choose to be a pirate, an adventurer, or a privateer to determine your scoring and winning conditions at the end of the game. There’s a lot of narrative adventure in this solitaire experience, but there’s also room to let your artistic and writing talents flow, drawing a colorful map of your experience or choose to keep a narrative journal as the captain of your adventures. Play a scene per day for a long-term paced experience, or blast through it all like the pirate you are.
This unique little game is sure to frustrate and delight in equal measures. For a greater challenge, print on standard printer paper. You see, the premise here is simple: flip the card into the air and use your fingers to “land” the skateboard on the table. You’ll need a little luck, a little bad luck from your opponents, and a lot of dexterity to land time and time again, as the game changes the angle of the card as you flip it into the air. Honestly, this unique little game deserves to be considered by almost anyone, as it is sure to get some laughs at the table - and it even can be played solo

Game of the Week: Cloud Dungeon - on sale for $5
The Cloud Dungeon is a Papercraft RPG that you cut apart as you play – it's a book that transforms into a tabletop game.
You and your fellow dungeon greedy friends are headed to a Cloud Dungeon to seek your fortune – mostly the piles of gold and jewels, as seen on the Cloud Dungeon informercials.
As you progress through the book, learning the rules as you go, creating your characters, coloring them, customizing them – you have a shared creative experience. You work together to make challenging choices, you team up against huge beasts, and you end up telling your own unique story as a team, or as a family.
Another one to grab for fans of the long, narrative, book-length print and play experiences. This one is kid-friendly as an experience, making it a perfect one to use as a family together with an experience that is fun and engaging. The really cool part is you cut and craft things as you go, making it a fully interactive endeavor that will be replayable because, well, you can change things up the next time - but with the downside of needing to reprint at least some things. This is for the updated 2.0 edition, and includes an expansion in the mix as well. If you want a fun experience, whether for yourself, to play with friends, or to enjoy as a family, then you will want to give this one a look.
