Nothing says family fun like marshmallows on a campfire. Can you toast your marshmallows to a beautiful golden brown, or will your opponents cause you to roast them, leaving you with nothing but a blackened crisp?
We went camping this past weekend, and what better way to celebrate camping than to play camping themed board games? This week we take a look at CAMP: The Game that Grows With You, the Dr. Toy award winning game from Education Outdoors. CAMP has a lot of features that are really appealing, but do they come together to make a compelling experience, or does the mix of mechanics create a natural disaster? Let’s take a look and find out.
As we mentioned last week, we’ve been camping! We talk about several camping-themed games from Education Outdoors.
A s’more traditionally consists of two graham crackers, one marshmallow, and one piece of chocolate. S’mores: The Card Game tries to re-create the fun of assembling a s’more in a card game. Can you craft a s’more from your cards before the deck runs out?
Jeff Johnston designs games as a hobby. He is the mind behind Pair of Jacks Games, and Anitra sat down with him at Granite Game Summit 2017 to talk about 3 of his published games: MoonQuake Escape , Flashlights & Fireflies, and Toasted or Roasted.
MoonQuake Escape is published by Breaking Games. Plot your escape from an alien prison. Bluff your fellow players and use special powers to uncover their character card, but beware! If your character card is uncovered, you’ll be stuck back with the rest of the prisoners, too!
Flashlights & Fireflies, published by Gamewright, has a similar bluffing mechanic, in a much simpler game for children. You and your fellow players are playing flashlight freeze-tag and racing to get to home base first.
Toasted or Roasted is published by Education Outdoors. Toast your marshmallows and get your fellow players to “roast” (burn) theirs.
