Yup, I know what you're thinking. "Where has this game been all my life". Well fret no longer, besides being able to buy this on amazon or ebay at incredibly inflated prices you can listen to our experiences with it. How it touched us, moved us and inspired us....... with a chair! To the back of the head!! OOOOOOHHHHH! That's gotta hurt!
G.I. Jooooooeeee! A real American hero, and a real bad board game! Take a boat out to an island! Smash it to pieces so you can't use it again! While you're at it throw some mines at your fellow Joes! That makes sense right?
This is the game that would break lesser men. But NO! gentle reader. This game did not break us! We excelled! We took a journey into each others minds to pick whether Chris had a secret crush on Johnny, Captain of the football team or whether Prof. Barter was eyeing Rex that shy emo kid. If you are gamer enough, you too will take on the game known as Heartthrob!!
We took on Halo the interactive strategy game. The punishment here was the interactive-ness we were forced to deal with. We love the video games, the comics and the books. And we wait with great anticipation for Halo 4, but this game is set worlds apart.
Yup, in this game you are trying to rescue Pauline from the clutches of the Kong of Donkeys. This card game recreates the scurrying along girders and scampering up ladders. Along with your friendly fireballs and barrels of course!
Are you looking for a way to combine your two greatest loves (Pac Man and Math) together? Well, look no further my friend. Pac Man gobbles up Math and fun in this delightful romp of a card game. Tell your friends, or don't.
Do you remember Turtles the Konami smash hit of a game from the 80's? Yeah, no we didn't either. But thanks to Youtube and this boardgame you can relive the game you had the fortunate opportunity to miss. Turtles and Bugs battling it out!
Here it is! And what a game it wasn't! What do you get when you take a cyborg cop a copy of Excel from the 80's and videotape recording machine? This game! Some much potential and so much failsauce. If you see this one at the local flea market PUT DOWN THE GAME - YOU HAVE 30 SECONDS TO COMPLY!!
This game was an interesting experience. We all expected to be bored to tears with this one, but it proved to be an intense experience in the end. We were tested, our alliances with each other were strained and it also almost tricked us into learning about history (FAIL!!). Epicness abounded with this baby!
What do you get when you take Candy Land and inject it with awesome until it pukes? Well, maybe not this game but its close!! Its got Ewoks, its got Phlogs and this rant is making me think I've lost my mind! But wait, a 3D pop-up board? Get out!! This one was an emotional roller coaster for us.
You've got those chunky cutesy looking figures at each others throats! But wait!! Throw them into an arena, NO, THREE ARENAS! Never thought death in space could be adorable. This was almost a fun waste of time, but not quite. Ironically the Ewoks saved us from the doldrums the day we reviewed this baby.
Yup, this was a game alright. Well not really a game, pretty much a VHS tape with a couple of dudes on it that introduce you an onslaught of finches, terns and the occasional owl. It was an experience like no other. Crazy bird watchin' kids!!
Its Dexter! Everyones favorite serial killer! Recreate the wacky hijinks in this non-climatic board game!! Complete with body bags and your own membership the Dexter cell phone network dive on in and slay your opponents!! Or not. Probably not, you really have better things to do.
It was an adventure and not really an adventure at the same time! If there is one thing you can count on from stinking rich people is that they will inevitably hide their millions somewhere in their house after they die. We searched, we seeked and we talked to each other until we just gave up (out of frustration). And remember its an action house, not a doll house!
Jessica Fletcher alongside Jessica Fletcher alongside Jessica Fletcher! And guess who the murderer is posing as? Jessica Fletcher!! What are we going to do? Someone is murdering people at the small spa resort island you are on and you need to find them!! Interesting possible co/op cylon action going on here but nonetheless this baby just was painful.
Its got a VHS tape! Its got Star Trek! Its got a frakkin' Klingon on the bridge and you are the only ones who can stop him! Experience this game and feel the Bij!!! Or chicken out and run screaming from the ship!
Judge Wapner smiling at you at every turn! What more do you need? No, its not Night Court, Judge Judy or Divorce Court. It is the granddaddy of them all, The Peoples Court. If you like randomness with your justice, then this game is for you!!
Mad Magazine the board game. The famous magazine is now a game! We played this game with our pal Rich Sommer of amc's Mad Men! Switching chairs, acting like a chicken and trying to lose all of your cash is what you will experience. And if you want to pimp out your version all it takes is a rock!
All my Children! Enter the peaceful town of Pine Valley and take on the role of one of the characters as you roll and move **surprise!!** around the board and play cards on each other. Yup, that pretty much sums it up. Worth a laugh or two to see what kind of cards you can play on each other. Will you get busted for selling drugs? Framed for murder? Or will someone try to sabotage your hairstyle? Only one way to find out!!
Check out some Totally Tubular video clips of the gnarly-ist grinds, ollies and fender benders (not so sure on that last one). We jump into our time machine and transport back to 1988 and take on one of the most incredible VCR games ever made, California games! WARNING: Use of this board will result in you driving into the Gulf of Mexico or worse. Do not use it for piloting vehicles.
Its Batman! It goes on forever! Its Batman Forever the audio tape game!! Luckily this game does not go on forever, it is limited to 30 minutes. And you don't feel like playing a game? No problem! This game pretty much literally plays itself for you!! You are just the tool used to shift cards around and shout "BATMAN AND ROBIN RULE!!"
