Most games listed as “2-4 players” tend to be better experiences with four people, in much the same way cars drive better with four wheels. Consider me pleased, then, that a game which allows four players is actually a solid two player game that doesn’t need the additional bodies to make it work well. Super Fantasy Rumble by Passion Project is not a vibrator, as you might expect, but rather a strategy card game played out on a grid style board. In essence, there are two teams containing two leader cards and four warrior cards, each with their own special attacks, defense, and range. The range is perhaps the key differentiating element of the game, and what adds to its unique appeal.
On a site like this one (Nintendorks), chances are me, you, and every other person visiting is a fan of Nintendo. Not just Nintendo, but classic Nintendo and vintage video games in general. In fact, I don’t even own a current generation console, and like Magic Johnson’s dick, I would be afraid of putting a modern video game in my mouth for fear of getting AIDS. However, my heart will forever hold a place for 1980s video games, at least until the dementia destroys so much of my brain that I can only remember the Vietnam War…which I never fought in. Yet, while I welcome companies, big and small, to prey upon my memories of my childhood, I will still cast a discerning eye on any nostalgic molestation. Thus, we turn my eyeballs towards Boss Monster, the newest deck management card game on the market.
