Superfight

Superfight_Core_grandeSUPERFIGHT is a game where you argue with your friends over ridiculous fights. The game is very simple. It’s fun for all levels and kinds of players.

The main deck consists of 500 cards, split between character cards (white cards), and powers and weaknesses (black cards). These cards are used to create fights like this:

A KINDERGARTEN CLASS THAT BREATHES FIRE AND IS WEARING JETPACKS vs. A PIRATE SWINGING A SHARK ON A CHAIN AND RIDING A SEGWAY.

As you can imagine, the arguments over who would win the fight are epic and hilarious.

Seriously, seriously fun. I played this last night with the two boys and the arguments were flying fast and furious. In fact, my phone rang and we didn’t quit playing, we just added in another person to the madness...

Let’s Play Friday! : Super Mario Galaxy

I’m really kind of excited to share this week’s video with you. Just last night, Scott was mentioning that he was trying to help an 8 year old with this game and he’d never even heard of the game before. Well, that sounded like the perfect reason for me to find a fun Let’s Play video to share with all of you! I’m curious though… are there certain games that you’d like to see video for? If so, please don’t hesitate to email us or to leave a comment on any of the Let’s Play Friday videos!

Cypher System

I have a confession to make. When I’m playing an RPG, any RPG, I sometimes wonder what it would be like to run that game in a totally different setting and genre.

From the Introduction to the Cypher System Rulebook:
“A cypher is a secret. It’s something that not everyone understands. It holds potential. Promise.
The Cypher System Rulebook came about because we published a game called Numenera, and then another called The Strange. These were quite popular, both for their settings and for their rules. They shared the same basic game engine: the Cypher System...

Unexploded Cow

 

I have a confession to make.  I like exploding things.  Fireworks, kittens (no really, I’ll review that game when it gets delivered), and yes cows.

From the Cheapass Games Website:

“Europe. Summer. 1997.
You have discovered two problems with a common solution: mad cows in England, and unexploded bombs in France.
In Unexploded Cow, you play a savvy entrepreneur who wants to help solve the world’s problems, by blowing up lots of cows. You’ll round up a herd of mad cows, give them a stirring pep talk, and march them through the French countryside. In doing so, you will clear fields of leftover ordnance from long-forgotten wars. And you’ll make a few bucks doing it.”

This is the brilliant concept first arrived in stores in 2001, and has since become one of Cheapass Games most popu...

Hanabi Deluxe

I have a confession to make. I love fireworks. The bright lights. The big bangs.

You may be asking yourself, “self, what do fireworks have to do with board games?”

The answer is Hanabi Deluxe, a unique, cooperative tile game. In Hanabi Deluxe you are trying to set off a Grand Fireworks Finale by playing tiles in the correct order. The trick to the game is that you can only see other players tiles, not your own.

You have the ability to tell other players if they have specific numbered tiles, or specific colored tiles, but not both, and nothing else. While you can give hints, your group only had a finite number of hints that may be given. If you are out of hints you can play a the next tile in order (again, you can’t see your own tiles) or you can discard a tile to regain a hint.
