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:
- Two Minute Warning
- Apropos of Board Games
- Dungeon Pages: Eli, Fledgling Thief in Briarton
Two Minute Warning
The clock is ticking down… Two-minute warning. No time-outs left. It’s the grand finale of the Global Football League Championship. The odds may be stacked against you, but the game is far from over. Will you rise to the challenge? Will you seize the opportunity and lead your team to a legendary victory? You’ve got two minutes to turn the tide, two minutes to carve your name in the annals of history. Brace yourself for an epic showdown on the field!
A game driven by a deck of playing cards, keywords, and your ability to construct an evolving narrative of the plays based on how the cards flip. A slick, smooth system based in parts around matching suits, and at other times about having the higher card than the opposing side in order to make the desired progress. There’s also a virtual way to play, which removes the need to have a deck of playing cards if that happens to be something you don’t have lying around. The game promises tense, exciting gameplay that will certainly pull through provided you enjoy crafting the experiences in your mind based upon the results you see. This is a perfect time to get into a game like this, pulling it out on the weekends to run your own end-of-game heroics while watching your favorite teams play.
Apropos of Board Games
It’s game night! You and your friends have gotten together to play a game, but how can you decide which to play?
We’ve all done it: played the picking a board game ungame. It is the most popular pick during some game nights, with crowds of people milling around refusing to choose a game. Well, this will not only give you a challenge to test your game knowledge, but can also lead to playing a game! Over the course of 5 rounds, you’ll increasingly narrow down the possibilities as you name games that have certain traits but not others, adding a new word (such as Dice) each round. As a bonus, you can all play the last game chosen regardless of whether you make it to the end or not - at the very least, you’ll have narrowed it down to 1-5 games that, if available to play, could be pulled out once you wrap up this fun little session.
Dungeon Pages: Eli, Fledgling Thief in Briarton
When his guild was arrested, Eli was the only one approached by the Elders. His skill combined with instinct stood out as a valuable addition to the school. The fact that Eli picked the counselor’s pocket during his ‘interview’ only confirmed his promise.
A fun little hero and dungeon to play through. I love his ability, letting you change a 1 to a 6 or a 6 to a 1 when using a coin to modify the roll. This is precisely what you want in an ability: something that you can use and have some sense of control over the eventual outcome. And you’ll need every bit of his trickery to face down the challenges this week, including a boss that damages you when marking his row or column, and minions that boost evil dice if you’ve damaged any of them without killing them off. Another excellent installment of Dungeon Pages to fuel your weekly addiction.https://www.pnparcade.com/collections/new-games
