Today I will be quickly covering two of the games I have knocked off of my unplayed games list. I played a few others, but for ease I will be putting them in smaller groups. For those of you just tuning in you can refer to my last post titled Unplayed Games. I must also note that despite my urgency in playing all of these games before purchasing more… I may have slipped up. I encountered several games at a neat little store called Bargain Hunt. I got a load of games for a total of like $40. Feel free to judge me now.
2+ Players, 1-2 Minutes
This game consists of six different characters that all have their own decks and you have a real-time “Brawl”. I’ll include the rules and a video for ease. Each deck has multiple card types ranging from attacks to blocks and even cards that clear the board so to speak. It’s a really fast paced and simple game. I have only played a two player game so the game may very well get more complicated with additional players. The art reminds me a great deal of Street Fighter and it was really cool playing a fighting game with cards. There have been three expansions, but I’ve looked and they are hard to find at a reasonable price, they are Brawl: Catfight, Brawl: Club Foglio, and Brawl: Ting Ting. There was also a recent Kickstarter for Brawl: Senior Year. The general Brawl page on Cheapass has information regarding all Brawl games and characters and even cool coloring pages for Brawl: Senior Year character. All and all I think it’s a great little game with the potential for growth. Different characters definitely make the replayability great.
2-6 Players, 15-25 Minutes
This is the card game version of Kill Doctor Lucky, which is a huge hit with my gaming groups. Each players gets to be a character that has been scorned by Doctor Lucky for some reason or another and it is hilarious. I’ll include rules and a video for ease. The art work is phenomenal and the writing is even better. Spite cards are what you use to stop other players from winning. The spite cards and character cards both have funny bits of writing on them that really make the game giggle worthy despite the fact that your entire purpose is to kill Doctor Lucky. I really preferred the card game to the board game, but literally everyone else I played with felt the board game was better. The board game definitely has a charming feel, but the card game takes up less space. The both have different rules and still feel very similar. This is a great game with great replayability and will be a part of our collection for years to come.
Both of these games were from Cheapass games, so I thought I’d mention that they have this great Free Games sections that you should check out. Also feel free to look at their contact page to subscribe to their newsletter, Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.
