Saturday has come back around and it means games night at Matakishi's.
"And here they are!
The most daredevil group of daffy drivers to ever whirl their wheels in The Wacky Races.
Completing for the title of world's wackiest racer.
The cars are approaching the start line..."
The first game of the night was 'Wacky Races' a recreation of the legendary Hanna-Barbera cartoon from the 1960's (Oh God, that's over 50 years ago, half a century...).
Wacky Races is a light game by the standards of the games normally reported in this blog. Given that nostalgia and name-recognition will be selling points for Wacky Races, it's probably a wise decision to keep the game as instantly accessible as possible.
What's in a game?
How's it play?
We begin with set up.
The first car across the finish line, wins.
There are 3 things the rules do really well.
Wacky Races is a quick, light little diversion. Take it as that and it's fine.
I play, I paint.
