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! 

Skull Canyon: Ski Fest by Pandasaurus Games Coming Soon

Pandasaurus Games announced Skull Canyon: Ski Fest - a set collection and slope-hitting game by designer duo Jason Klinke and Kip Noschese is coming April 2022.

"Skull Canyon Ski Resort is finally celebrating their grand re-opening with a huge festival, after being closed for many snowy seasons in a row. Hopefully by now skiers have forgotten the rumors of yeti sightings on the mountains...

Hit the slopes and brave the terrain, competing against other skiers for points and fame. Play sets of cards to complete a run, but remember do it with style to wow the onlookers! Take the lift to reach different parts of the mountain and claim the most difficult runs!

Once the sun sets, Après-Ski begins and tired skiers can spend their evenings at different hangouts, recouping and planning for the next busy day of skiing. Out-ski your opponents to become the new legend of Skull Canyon!"

Pre-orders of Skull Canyon: Ski Fest will include a FREE pack of 3 promo Gear cards ($8 value), Pandasaurus Earmuffs, Fanny Pack, and Hot Chocolate!

About

Prove you're the ultimate skier by skiing the most difficult runs, collecting the best gear, and earning the highest score!

To get your ski on, you need to collect and turn in matching sets of slope cards. Each set you turn in lets you ski a run on the mountain, earning victory points, fame, and a spot on the run scoreboard that tracks who performed best on each run. The higher a run's difficulty rating, the more cards you'll need to collect to complete it - but you'll also score more points and earn more fame!

At the end of each day of skiing, you'll take a break at the Ski Village, where you can take bonus actions and acquire gear to prepare for the next day of skiing. at the end of the 3rd day, whoever has the most victory points wins!

  • 2-4 players
  • 45-60 min
  • Ages 14+
  • $40 MSRP
  • Designers: Jason Klinke and Kip Noschese
  • Illustrator: Gica Tam (Gods Love Dinosaurs, Wayfinders)

Approachable mechanics, interesting decisions, and a fun theme appeal to many types of players!

Play sets of cards (à la Ticket to Ride) to ski down a slope - the harder the run, the more cards you'll need in your set!

Players jockey for control of the slopes and will be awarded points for the number of easy, advanced, and experts runs they control at the end of the game!

At the end of each day, take turns visiting cabins (à la Tokaido) with powerful actions to set yourself up for the next day.

Diverse set of characters, from race to gender to equipment!
