Starting this summer, you’ll be able to guide your favorite Scott Pilgrim characters in Scott Pilgrim’s Precious Little Card Game! I love the double-sided cards that allow you to choose between solving your problems with hard work/empathy or violence. [click to continue…]


Starting this September, you’ll have the chance to fight the Battle Of Hogwarts with a new cooperative deck-building game called Harry Potter Hogwarts Battle (how convenient!).

Two to four players can play either Harry, Ron, Hermione or Neville and use their own personal deck to fight to build more powerful decks that feature Wizarding World characters, spells, and items in an attempt to take down Voldemort.

There are a lot of companies putting out tabletop games at the moment, which is wonderful, but no one is knocking it out of the park as frequently and consistently as Cryptozoic Games. Now their success has been rewarded with a pretty awesome license – they’ve unveiled a new title called the Cartoon Network Crossover Crisis Deck-Building Game.

Yeah, that sounds pretty amazing.

Tall Card was featured in the fourth episode of Firefly, but despite being shown on-screen, it never had any actual rules. Undaunted, Toy Vault is releasing a version of the game this coming February. It will have 45 cards including the round ones with the plum that made Simon lose the game on the show. There will also be an extra 50 cards that will let you create your own Firefly-themed games to pass those long nights cruising through the Black.

See a picture of the actual game after the break.

If you have one party game in your game cupboard, it should be Cards Against Humanity (CAH). The irreverent game is easy to play and laugh out loud moments are practically guaranteed within just a few minutes of opening the box. One of many cool things about the game is that it’s published under Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-ShareAlike. That ridiculously long string of words means anyone can make their own cards for the game, they just can’t sell them. The license leaves the door wide open for parodies and Conventional Improv, a comedy group, has made a deck based on Doctor Who.

Cards Against Gallifrey came about because the comedy group performs a game show based on CAH and they made a Who version in honor of the 50th anniversary. The 72+ card deck features a ton of quips with names, creatures, and a lot of inappropriate references. In other words, it’s perfect. You can download the entire deck for free at Drop Canvas. I can’t wait to see the card combos from this version pop up on Instagram.

Apparently Star Trek’s redshirts have proven to be so inept that their obligatory deaths have become the focus of this card game from ThinkGeek. The goal is pretty much what you’d expect – kill all of your redshirts as quickly as possible and win:

“Just look at the mission at hand . . . and then pick the people with the worst chance of succeeding! Only when all your redshirts have been eliminated will you be a happy captain. Kill ’em all first and you win! The Redshirts Card Game – ‘To boldly eliminate your crew like no captain has done before!'”

The game is tailored for 2-7 players with a typical game lasting 30-90 minutes. Check out an additional photo after the break.

Only a geek could design a card game that pits computer processors against each other.

CPU Wars, created by Harry Mylonadis, is a simple card game that lists the specifications for processors from the past 40 years—the card with the best specs trumps the competing card. You can help make this game a reality by donating to the Kickstarter fund.

Watch a video explaining how the game works after the break.

We first heard that about an Angry Birds board game titled Knock on Wood back in January, and the good news is that it is now available for purchase. If you still aren’t sick of Angry Birds, there’s also a new card game as well.

I can’t believe it took this long to make a board game based on The Princess Bride—but here you have it. Storming the Castle: The Princess Bride Card Game.

Playing as Westley, Buttercup, Inigo, or Fezzik, you’ll race your adversaries traversing your Path Tiles to get to the castle. But you’ll have to make sure you have the proper Tactic Cards to get you onto each tile. Maybe you’ll even play a card that will add Path Tiles to your opponent’s path. Inconceivable? Not in the least! Storm the castle, save the princess (even if you are the princess), and win the game. Add your own favorite quotes as you play, and Storming the Castle: The Princess Bride Game is some of the best fun you’ll ever have. Ever.
