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.
- 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.
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.
