Someone mentioned in one of the panels that they want to do that. I snagged one just for pax. Is there anyone who wants to have the hippos in tabletop?

What do you guys think?

    I always got the one with the broken hand piece with electrical tape wrapped around it so it didn't gash hands. I think every set had a broken hippo.

    :(

    Congrats on your 1337 postcount.

    I still have my set buried in a closet somewhere in pristine condition, aside from missing a few stickers and 3 marbles.

    The problem with America is stupidity. I'm not saying there should be a capital punishment for stupidity, but why don't we just take the safety labels off of everything and let the problem solve itself?

    I will ride my Orange into the victory circle!!

    Sounds like theres a ton of interest. I currently have all my marbles +1

    16 is what came with mine, 15 was standard i believe.

    We will have to wait until the venue is selected and floor space allocated for us to have a chance at setting this up in the table top room.

    Good to hear im not in the minority here.

    Perhaps every genre of video games should be represented in board game form.

    Hungry, Hungry Hippos is a fine representation of a MMORG level-grinder.
    Rock 'em Sock 'em is an admirable fighter.
    How about an FPS (click for game review)?

    Yes. Most definitly yes. I always wish that game had more add-ons to it. Pinball/crossfire. Hell it would make a neat online game if they get the physics down enough. I digress..

    A+ idea there slactron. You win an INTERNET! I remeber playing this with my younger brother, There wouldn't be enough steel marbles for the both of us so we would try and run the other out of marbles to win it.

    You really want me to bring it?

    Mouse Trap. Someone bring Mouse Trap.

    Or Fireball Island.


    I used to have this superrad old Ghostbusters 3D board game that a skull you would drop into a slot and depending if your piece was standing in the wrong place, an axe would drop on you, or you'd get knocked down the stairs or something.

    It was a bitch and a half to get set up, but damned if it wasn't worth it.

    So I was Toys R Us today and decided to scout the board games.

    Here's games that I'd like to play at PAX:

    -I mean, Just look at it:
    bgame1.jpg

    -Not only is it super geeky by using angles and whatnot, but you can give each other cancer, too:
    bgame2.jpg

    -It's motherfucking spiderman in a motherfucking game:
    bgame3.jpg

    -Pokemans! And it looks interesting, it's the opposite of hungry hungry hippos; you use pinball flippers to keep the balls AWAY from your area. The person with the least at the end wins.
    bgame4.jpg

    -Had fun with this game before.
    bgame6.jpg

    -Don't really want to pay for them, but took pics because you guys mentioned it:

    oh man.. crossfire. And its at a semi-reasonable price. If only fireball mountain was still in production. I never got to play that one but it sounded good. Shit.. I may have to make a stop for crossfire.

    Heroscape is fun. It's miniatures for cheap people. Worst Case Scenario is also fun. I'm kinda bad at it cause I don't get out much, but sitting down with a group of people trying to guess whether to swim away from a shark or punch it in the nose is always fun. I played a different version of the laser game and it was fun. Not as fun as the others, but kinda fun.

    Oh shit yes fireball island. I had that!

    I think the board got broken a few years ago, though. Man, that would be fucking awesome.

    If no one makes any suggestions (other than suggesting all of them :D ) I'll just pick up pokemans.

    1-I'm Pikapuff.
    2-It's the cheapest.
    3-It's the smallest.

    Pika, I've got Carcassone with a buttload of expansions, so don't bother with that. You're welcome to play with me all you want.

    LaserBattle is a good gimick game, but not great for repeated play.

    Worst Case Scenario is fucking hilarious, and is great for situations where you are just playing with friends, so it would be my recommendation. The game itself is pretty much crap, but the jokes and fun come from the cards and answers rather than the game itself.

    The Spider-Man game I have no experience with, but it doesn't look too promising.

    Crossfire is fucking rad, but is only a two-person game, and those little metal balls will get lost with a quickness.

    Heroscape is okay, but I'll be bringing mine, too, so again don't bother if you don't really want to.

    Pokemon game looks a little interesting, but again it looks to be one of those gimicky games that aren't super fun and were just sold as a licensing deal to move a game that didn't have it's own merit in the first place.

    So yes. Worst Case Scenario is my vote.
