Are you sick of the traditional roll and move games? In 1989 Milton Bradley tried to revolutionize the roll and move genre with This Game is Bonkers. In This Game is Bonkers players play cards on the board which alter how players move around the gameboard. This Game is Bonkers tried to be innovative, but its’ new ideas for the most part fall flat.
Are you ready for an adventure? Do you want to explore a spider infested cave in order to uncover riches? In the 1989 TSR game Web of Gold you get to do just that. While the box’s artwork screams cheesy, Web of Gold is a surprisingly good strategic game.
Roll and move games in general are not very good. They lack having any strategy and rely entirely on luck. With Roller Coaster’s unique theme I was hoping that would be different. While Roller Coaster actually succeeds at being better than most roll and move games, it is still far from a good game.
