Analogue gaming in a digital world - that is the slogan of Polyhedron Collider. And so they reviewed Whacky Roll and come to this conclusion:
... as a game for kids Whacky Roll really hits the mark, while true that the roll and move aspect makes the game very random there are lots of tactical possibilities in both trying to block Whacky into a corner with the ghosts and taking advantage of power pills and knowing when to utilise a high dice roll to cheese it out of there.
Lorna has written a short review about Whacky Wit® at the Opinionated Gamers homepage. She rated it with four Points wich is the highest rating. We are very happy to see, that Whacky Wit® also is played and reviewed in the United Staates and we are also very proud that Joe Huber from BGG.com also rated it high and loves Whacky Wit®. In december 2013 he auctioned a Whacky Wit board at the Jack Vasel Memorial Fund auction on BoardGameGeek.com. Lorna also has modified the Whacky figures a bit to give them more femininity - and that's (for the history books) how "Madame Whacky" was created 🙂
We are working on an international edition of Whacky Wit® which has no german text on the board and also has a multilanguaged rulebook. We already have the rules translated and printed in english, german, spanish and french - but for building a new board, doing the new layouts and trying to get the international version cheaper than before we need some pre-orders to buy higher amounts of raw materials. So what we need is about €9800 to get everything done. If we don't reach the goal it doesn't mean, that we can not produce, but it will be a little bit more difficult and delivery times will be as long as nowadays 🙂 Check out our Indiegogo-campaign and support us!
Whacky Wit in a 45 minute game teaching video session in the U.S.. BoardGameGeek TV with his Game Night! broadcast shows how to play Whacky Wit® and also shows up the small Whacky Roll at the end of the video. We are very excited about this video, it is almost perfect in describing the rules and of course the conclusion of the game from the 36th minute pleases us tremendously.
