It’s an all-out war for meal supremacy. General Donut, General Cheeseburger, and General Chicken lead their troops into battle. In this highly thematic card game, Food Fight is a good take on the classic game of war which would have been great except for one rule.
Just like many other classic board games that have been turned into simple card games, Sorry the Card Game tries to simulate the game of Sorry in a quick card game. Sorry the Card Game is actually better than the original game in some aspects but it still relies too heavily on luck and ends too quickly.
Tic-Tac-Toe is a classic game enjoyed by many people. Unfortunately the game is not very strategic and has actually been solved where if neither player makes a mistake the game will always end in a tie. Tic-Tac Two tries to fix the problems with Tic-Tac-Toe by allowing players to move around the grid that the game is played on. While it is better that Tic-Tac-Toe, Tic-Tac Two has plenty of its’ own issues.
Take a well regarded publisher like Avalon Hill and add in some wacky inventions and you would assume that you would get at least a pretty good game. Unfortunately with The Game of Inventions, that is far from the case.
The biggest problem with the game War was its’ high reliance on luck. Over the years many games have tried to eliminate some of the luck with some succeeding while others have failed miserably. Slapshot slaps a hockey theme on the game of War and does a decent job of fixing some of its’ problems.
In the 1930’s through the 1950’s a radio show by the name of Fibber McGee and Molly ruled the airwaves. In 1940 Milton Bradley tried to make a board game based on the comedy. While the “Mad Lib” story mechanic can provide some laughs, the game is otherwise sorely lacking.
A while ago I played a game called Wits and Wagers. Although not being a particularly deep game, Wits and Wagers was a lot of fun. Guesstimation tries to follow in the footsteps of Wits and Wagers. Unfortunately it fails to stand out in any way and in many ways is inferior to Wits and Wagers.
Do you remember from school when you had to make those poems where you took a word and then had to come up with a word that started with each letter of the original word? Well as it turns out those are called acrostics and they just so happen to the basis behind the game Across Ticklers. Across Ticklers has an interesting gameplay mechanic but there is little else to the game.
