So I saved the best for last! Or rather I screwed up and forgot to write about three games. So they get a special edition bonus round! But I glad I did discover these games because they are good and theres another number one priority among them, which will it be? uhh exciting. Now how is it I do this again?:
I won’t write much on what the game is about, just my thoughts, you can read about the games themselves on the webpage, I’ll link to each game.
When we sign up for Fastaval, we have to give the games we want to play a priority from one (I really, really, really wanna play this game) to four (if there’s nothing else, I want to play this game) or just nothing.
In this write up I’ll give each game a “Do I want to play this?” priority from 1 (a lot) to 5 (ah properly not, not that it’s a bad game, it’s just not for me.)
This game sounds epic! eighties action movie but with storks! I can’t begin to describe how absolutely silly that sound and how cool they manage to make it sound on such little space. Really go read it.
And it has some board game mechanics, but in such a way that fits the game, you have to throw dice, but they have to land at certain marks, and: “you are equipped with the most lethal weapon of any eighties action hero: Your wit, and your famous catchphrase!”
I think this could be very fun.
Only concern is: it’s only two hours including explaining rules, I hope that is enough.
I’m definitely putting it down as one of those light hearted fun games to put in between two hard ones.

If I have the time for it yes, I think with the grim games on my list, this will be a nice break.
Bioshock meets the Stanford Prison Experiment… waow, it’s sounds really cool game and kind of scary. And it’s an idea I have played around with once upon a time: That the memories of the characters move around during the game.
As interesting as it sounds it doesn’t feel like a game for me though. I don’t feel like this: “You like extreme characters, and are ready to challenge any system, be it society or role-playing game. That is why you want to play the Prisoner.”
Or this: “You have always thought that mad scientists are cool, so you want to control the experiment and take the role of the Manager.”
I don’t feel like being mind fucked or mind fcuking some one else.
But other than that I think the premise is very cool.
You are not only losing your self you are getting mixed up with the other players.

No but some will have a really good experience with this.
I love the sound of this game, it’s very black boxy, I would actually love to see it in a black box some day. It’s physical, it’s childish but still horribly tragic and a love that kind of games.
And I just love the flavor text you kind of get into the mood of the game already then. I hope it’s as symbolic as it sounds, were like in the text the horrible reality is kind of hinted to through this childish narration.
I would normally never play a game with the theme like this, but because of the way it’s done it jumps straight to a priority number one. I can’t wait to play characters like: Table, Plant, and Carpet with the brown spot.

Yes you guessed it, this is the bonus game that became an instant number one.
Next time I will show you what games I did sign up for in the end.
