Episode 26 - Gen Con 2019

PLAYING HOOKY 26.jpg

In this episode we review some of the new games we purchased at Gen Con, discuss the rules, ease of play, and some of the crap decisions we may have made in the process.

GWAR vs. Time is a deck-building game. Players will build decks featuring their favorite GWAR characters, items, and locations, as well as their enemies, from throughout the band’s decades-long history. This includes characters like Berserker Blothar, Pustulus Maximus, Balsac the Jaws of Death, Beefcake the Mighty, Jizmak da Gusha, Oderus Urungus, and Sleazy P. Martini, as well a villains like Techno and Sawborg Destructo, Cardinal Syn, the Ultimate Bohab, and Boss Glom. The game goes deep into the GWARchives to find things from way back as well, like Cornelius Carnage.

Tortuga 1667 is all about the interactions you have with the other players. In some cases, such as when you and your shipmates are attacking the Spanish Galleon, you need to rely on your enemies in order to succeed. In the very next turn, however, your shipmates might stab you in the back with a mutiny in order to keep all the treasure for themselves.
