Whacky Roll & Whacky Wit Review

whacky roll whacky wit pac man board game review
Possibly the first video game I ever played was a game called Snapper, a Pac-Man clone on the Acorn Electron. Telling you this not only points out my ever increasing age but lest you know that even in the early 80’s Pac-Man was a big deal and is one of the classic video games. Whacky Wit and Whacky Roll are board games that allow you to replicate this classic arcade nonsense in boardgame form.

Kickstarter Collision April 2014

Kickstarter Collision April 2014 Aetherium Mercs Recon Tracker Coup Reformation Heavy Steam
April is here, daffodils are in flower and lambs are bouncing around and the fields, mint sauce anyone? But we don’t care what’s happening outside, we’re vitamin D deficient gamers and we want to know what exciting projects Kickstarter is bringing to our gaming table this month. As per normal let’s check how last month’s games faired:
  • Game Developerz, the tongue in cheek card game of video game development, gained a very respectable £27,700.
  • Airlock, unfortunately failed to fund, raising around 20% of its goal. A real shame because I do think this is a good game.
  • Hoyuk, hit home and managed to raise nearly $34,000 of a $15,000 goal proving that you can breathe life into print and play projects.
  • Guild Ball showed us yet again that miniatures games are always popular raising over £93000.
  • Dungeon Scroll did very well raising $15,000, which isn’t bad considering the battering Game Salute is taking for late deliveries.

I took part in my first Warmachine Competition, this is what happened.

Warmachine Vengeance tournament

Last week I took part in my first Warmachine tournament. Warmachine Vengeance was being held at Titan Games in Stourbridge and a friend dragged me into the competitive environment. I’ve been playing games in one form or another for over 20 years but this was my first experience of a competitive event and in every sense of the word it was a learning experience.

The first thing I have to say is a big thank you to the staff at Titan Games, the Press Gangers running the event and all the players who took part. Everyone was extremely welcoming and very understanding of a player like me who doesn’t quite know all the rules off by heart.
