Wacky Wizard Games Imprint and Three New Games Announced by @wwizardgames

Wise Wizard Games announced the launch of Wacky Wizard Games, a new brand imprint focused on family-friendly, lightweight games. Three games are planned for release in 2024 as part of this new brand imprint: Star Realms Academy, Caution Signs, and Pack the Essentials. If you are interested and attending PAX Unplugged they will have prototypes of Caution Signs and Pack the Essentials. "We are super excited to be adding this new family friendly product line to our catalog. We wanted to maintain the focus of Wise Wizard Games on strategy card and dice games with geeky themes, and have created Wacky Wizard Games as an umbrella for lightweight games with a more whimsical, cute vibe," shared Debbie Moynihan, COO of Wise Wizard Games. Star Realms Academy Forge your own star realms, overloaded with cuteness! A kid friendly but still fun for grown-ups version of the popular Star Realms deckbuilding game for 2 players. A little less math, no reading necessary, but still tons of fun! 

Star Trek #15 - Mirrored Part 1 Review

Star Trek #15 Review

The countdown to next year's Star Trek sequel continues here, in an all-new re-imagining of the classic 'Mirror Universe' story! Witness the transformation of the new Enterprise crew in part one of this blockbuster story, overseen by Star Trek writer/producer Roberto Orci!

Cover/Solicit - 3/5

- Would I pick-up the comic based on the solicit/cover alone? Are the alternate covers appealing? Does the solicit/cover portray what happens in the issue?

Art - 3/5

- Do I personally like this artist's style? Does the artist stay true to
the characters appearance?

Colors/Ink/Lettering - 4/5

- Does the work blend well with the artist? Is the coloring/inking enjoyable and easy to distinguish what's happening? Can I easily read the lettering?

Layout/Flow - 5/5

- Does the layout of the issue make it easy to read? Does the issue have a good flow of the plot and keep me engaged?

Story - 5/5

- Weighted Triple. How well did the issue further develop the current story? How well did the issue further develop the characters? Did I enjoy reading the issue?

Verdict - 4.3

- I've been watching Star Trek since my dad and I started watching TNG. I'm not Trekkie by any means but I do like the TV Series and Movies. After the relaunch with the 2009 Star Trek movie, I was interested in this series. So far IDW has been retelling the Original Series episodes with the reboot twist on them. From the sound of the solicit it makes it seem this is going to have something to do with the upcoming movie, but it most likely will not. Also I'm not really a fan of the covers, I've gotten used to the fact they are going with a common theme but I still don't care for them, and the photo variant just seems completely out of place. My second biggest gripe is the art, it's been awhile since I read Star Trek #14 - Keesner, but I don't recall it being so bad. This issue I had a hard time figuring out who some of the characters were at first (Leonard McCoy for instance), they didn't quite look like their movie counterparts. The biggest art snafu is in a panel where Spock is missing an eye, it wasn't drawn. Otherwise this was a good take on the original Mirror Universe episode with changes related to Nero's involvement in the timeline. I'm excited to see what Commander Kirk does with the Narada and how the normal universe is going to be involved.
