Game: New The Princess Bride Games

Check out these new The Princess Bride party games from ThinkGeek.

Prepare to Die! 2e:



He’d followed the man with six fingers for almost all his life. Finally, when the chance presented itself, he was met with a knife in the stomach and wounds in both shoulders. But he had a mantra; a phrase he had practiced as long as he’d practiced revenge. He repeated it over and over, and it gave him strength. And now, even though we were warned not to once, we’re going to mock his pain in The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die! 2e party game.

Game play is very simple. The judge of the round (this position rotates) lays down a “My name is…” card. It could be Vladimir Putin, Star-Lord, The Rock, or a number of other famous and/or beloved people. Everyone then selects the “Prepare to die!” card from their hand which they think is the funniest combination. There are so many reasons your adversaries should prepare (from exploding your kittens to trolling your YouTube), that you’ll be peeing yourself with glee with each and every round. The judge picks a winner, points are awarded, a new judge is decreed, and the next round of The Princess Bride: Prepare to Die! Again!! party game begins. Just be careful if you play this with Sicilians (especially if death’s on the line).

But ThinkGeek! Didn’t you sell this game before? Yes and no. What we sold was the original. This version has 240 new cards. It can be played on its own or in combination with the original.

I Hate to Kill You:



Sometimes in movies two good guys find themselves facing off in battle. We don’t know it at the time, but it’s no different in The Princess Bride when the Man in Black duels Inigo Montoya. One is a decent fellow who hates to kill and the other is a decent fellow who hates to die.

With The Princess Bride: I Hate to Kill You board game, choose from your favorite sword-wielding characters: Man in Black, Inigo Montoya, Count Rugen, or Prince Humperdinck. Each player starts with six dice and 10 cards. Each turn, both players roll their dice to reveal a number of Swords, and play a card which may modify the outcome. The player with the highest total of Swords scores a hit and must remove a die from their active pool. As players lose more dice and more cards, the first player to score five hits wins! En garde!

 A Battle of Wits:



“The battle of wits has begun,” said the man in black. “It ends when you decide and we drink and find out who is right and who is dead.”
– William Goldman, The Princess Bride

In truly one of the most classic scenes from The Princess Bride, Vizzini and the Man in Black sit down and face off in a battle of wits. Who will drink the poison? Who will survive? Don’t just sit idly by like Princess Buttercup. Dive in and join the battle.

A Battle of Wits, a Princess Bride game, is an exciting game of bluff and double bluff for between two and ten players. A row of goblets sit in the middle of the table, ready to be filled with either wine or poison. Players each take the role of one character but it is only at the very end of a game that they will drink, one from each goblet. During the game, they must play their cards, one each turn, either into the top of a goblet (adding poison or wine to a goblet) or to the bottom of a goblet (bidding on the goblet). Who will fall prey to their enemies and who will eliminate themselves? Only the most intelligent will survive!

The Hungry Gamer Reviews Tzolk’in

One of the more highly anticipated games from 2020 was Pendulum, a game that had a core conceit of time, the longer the worker stays out on the board the more powerful it is. Whether or not that game worked is a different article, but the concept of time being part of the mechanic for the worker placement game had been done previously, and if popular opinion can be believed, had been done very well in Tzolk'in, a game which has been around since 2012.
