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!

Press Release

In Dog Park: New Tricks, business is booming! There are more dogs to walk - including rescues - more places in the park to explore, and new specialist trainers. Players are still trying to become the most accomplished walkers by earning the best reputation, but now they have more layers of strategy to explore. This expansion also adds a fifth player, which can be played with or without New Tricks.

"We’re so excited to be expanding the world of Dog Park with not only more dogs, but more strategic choices for players," said Lead Designer and Birdwood Games co-founder, Lottie Hazell. "This expansion adds some gloriously crunchy decision-making processes for the more experienced gamer, without losing Dog Park's intuitive play-style that has encouraged so many new players to the table."

"New Tricks will be designed and printed to the same high quality that Dog Park players have come to expect from us at Birdwood Games," said Jack Hazell, designer and co-founder. "Holly Exley has done a superb job at illustrating the new multi-breed dogs and the team at Quillsilver Studio have added their usual sparkle with their sophisticated graphic design, product design, and development."
