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! 

Spider-Man and Friends Come to Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes


I so far have resisted the urge to get Disney Infinity. For those who don't know what it is, its a action figure collection style game ala Skylander where you buy your favorite Disney characters and playsets and then transport them into the virtual world on your Wii, Xbox, and Playstation. The reason I've resisted isn't due to the subject matter but the fact that if I start collecting something it's like Pokemon "Gotta Catch 'em All". Well lets just say the announcement last April made it harder, and the recent unveil by Marvel doesn't help either. Disney and Marvel have unveiled that phase 2 of the Disney Infinity will crossover into their Marvel properties (I see their Lucas Arts properties coming soon too... Star Wars droooool).


Back in April we discovered that “Disney Infinity 2.0” would be trading the princesses and pirates of its predecessor for an epic cast of core Avengers. Officially dubbed “Disney Infinity: Marvel Super Heroes,” the sequel to the popular toy-meets-videogame mash-up will launch with Captain America, Hulk, Hawkeye, Iron Man, Thor, and Black Widow, the latter three of which will be bundled with the game’s starter back.

As we recently learned at this year’s Electronic Entertainment Expo—E3—however, these six super heroes won’t be busting bad guys by themselves. Spider-Man, along with Nick Fury, Iron Fist, Nova, and Venom, will also get their own collectible figures which, of course, can be brought to life in the game’s virtual, interactive world.



More than just acting as spandex-clad sidekicks to the previously announced cast, though, these additional characters will get their own standalone Play Set, complete with an original story penned by Brian Michael Bendis. During a behind-closed-door demo of the “Disney Infinity” follow-up, Avalanche Software’s head honcho, John Blackburn, teased an exclusive look at the Spidey-starring content.

The Spider-Man Play Set comes packaged with the web-head and Nova; Nick Fury, Iron Fist, and Venom can also be unleashed in the game, but must be purchased separately. According to Blackburn, the Play Set’s storyline pits Spider-Man against some iconic villains who’ve hatched an expectedly evil plan: “Green Goblin and Mysterio have teamed up and kidnapped Venom. They’ve taken some of his symbiote, cloned it, and are trying to wipe out S.H.I.E.L.D once and for all.”
