I’m probably the only person left alive who remembers this, but there used to be a line of rubbery action figures called Food Fighters. Each figure was a common piece of food (chicken leg, taco, hamburger) but personified as a soldier. Cryptozoic, makers of the Walking Dead board game, may have had those action figures battling around their subconscious when they created their newest card game, Food Fight. Within the game, players draft tasty combatants to enact war in battlefields like Watermelonloo and Spaghettis-Burg. Two to six players can build their armies and lay down powerful combo attacks on all their flavorful foes.
Mr. Scott…please beam down…all…the..Redshirts. If you’re, in any way, familiar with the classic sci-fi series such a line might emanate from, then you’re also well aware those crew persons are not coming back. The new Redshirts card game capitalizes on that very notion by providing a game where two to seven players command a ship with the main intention of murdering every last redshirt aboard. Looney, Munchkin-like fun and mayhem applied to Star Trek, peoples.
Haggis, not just a delious dish made of sheep’s intestines any more. Thanks to Indie Boards & Cards, Haggis is also an addictive card game. Taking form and function from classic card games like Tichu and Big Two, Haggis would be falls into the category of climbing card games where players fit to be the first with an empty hand. Best part, though: you can wear a kilt while you play.
Anyone up for seconds?
Planechase has returned! This casual format began the cycle that recently ended with the Commander decks that were released last year. As Planechase is a casual format, you can actually play your Commander deck in the format as well as any other deck you would like to play. Up to four players choose decks then play against each other while being effected by the Planechase and Phenomena cards. These cards get placed based on dice rolls and come with damaging or rewarded effects. Four different decks come with ten Planechase cards as well as a regular 60 card deck.
