We really shouldn't be traveling right now, what with the pandemic and all. So, many people's vacations have been cancelled. Well, chin up, because you can still visit a bustling city vicariously in Waddle, the new board game about penguins with adorable bow ties that's available now from WizKids.
From the website:
WizKids is thrilled to announce that Waddle, an adorable pattern movement game for 2-4 players, is available now in North American Game Stores!
In this fun, friendly, and accessible game from legendary video game designer Raph Koster (Ultima Online, Star Wars Galaxies) and tabletop guru Isaac Shalev, players will take an adorable group of curious penguins sightseeing around the city trying to match the patterns on their cards with the locations the penguins travel to. The game board is a set of 5-10 places (depending on the player count) each with room for 5 penguins, and an adorable illustration of said penguins wreaking havoc at restaurants, libraries, or even the opera! The Penguins are screen-printed custom wooden meeples, divided into yellow and red groups, with matching bow ties!
Players share the same group of penguins, but each person scores based on their carefully chosen cards. Waddle requires a mix of advance planning and thinking on your feet in order to succeed. After a set number of rounds, the player with the most points did the best job of corralling the penguins and wins the game!
