But Wait There’s More expansion needs your help!

butwaitboxWe’re getting ready to launch our next expansion for But Wait, There’s More! Next expansion? Well we do have a few expansion available from the Toy Vault website! You can get a 6th player expansion that allows you to play 6 players – with each player on their own, or up to 12 players as partners. You can also get a Geek expansion that has 30 more cards that are themed around superheroes, video games and fantasy. We also have That’s the Best Part – an expansion that adds different rules and cards to the mix. I always laugh whenever this expansion is played!

But now we have a new expansion in the works and we need your help. Well – we need your help if you’re ok with things getting a bit raunchy…or a lot raunchy. The tentative title of the expansion is Sex Sells – and, as you can guess, the content is very adult oriented!

If you are interested in testing then please contact us (jay@bamboozlebrothers.com) and we can supply a pdf so you can print out the few pages of cards to play it.

We only ask that if you sign up – that you do test it – and you do provide us with your thoughts and feedback!

But wait there’s more…But Wait There’s More!

BWTM-bestpartThat’s right – you might not even have the base game yet (but if you do – yay! Let us know your thoughts!) – but we’ve already got some expansions coming your way. The first is called That’s The Best Part, and I have to say, it really is the best part! It’s one of my favourite things about the game!

Here’s how it works: After someone pitches a product with their two features (one that came in halfway through after stating But Wait There’s More!) – it’s opened to questions from the audience. The player to your right then asks you a question from one of their That’s The Best Part cards. The question could be something like “What if it gives me a rash” or “What if I accidentally flush it down the toilet?” and the person pitching has to respond with “Oh…that’s the best part…” and go one to explain why this product giving you a rash is the BEST part! I laugh every time I hear it!

Check out the Toy Vault website for more info on this $4.99 expansion. It should be available in a month or so!! Awesome!

Belfort: The Expansion Expansion Review

Bex-coverThis review was posted awhile ago – but he has tweaked it so much and added so many more photos that I thought I’d share it again. His enthusiasm for the expansion is fantastic! I’m really proud of that expansion because it really feels like we added something new to the game – without bogging it down or making it more complicated. Great review Mark!

-Jay Cormier

Reviews of all of our games keep coming in!

Reviews seem to be popping up all the time for one of our games so we thought we’d share wheat people are saying about all the Bamboozle Brother games recently. Check out these great comments! Really makes me happy to see so many people enjoying the game we’re making! Thanks for the kind words everyone!

ThisTown-logoThis Town Ain’t Big Enough for the 2-4 of Us

  • Recommendation: Yes! Games won’t take longer than 15 minutes, max, if that. For what it is, it is an excellent little game. If you were panning for gold, this game would be a real gem. – Kevin Garnica
  • A really fun tile laying microgame. Plays fast and has interesting moments. I really liked how you score points based on how many symbols your OPPONENTS have in the same town. Very creative. Worth checking out. – Andrew Bellavie
  • This is an EXTREMELY good/fun game for the price. Impressed with the “bones” of this one.- Xenothon Stelnicki
  • Great lunch time game and filler. Simple rules and plays well at all player numbers. Can add multiples of the game to make the game longer. – Pat Gagnon

butwaitboxBut Wait There’s More

  • Once you’ve had a taste of “But Wait, There’s More!” you’ll never want to go back to the relatively lacklustre fun of games like Apples to Apples and Snake Oil again. The genius of this game lies in the fun of the pitch – you have a little bit to go on from your hand of attributes & some randomness when you draw from the deck, and it’s all 100% hilarious and fun. Best of all, everyone gets a pitch for the item each round and then everyone votes on what they thought was the best pitch – a nice touch to make sure everyone’s participating and having fun. Highly recommended! – Nicole Hoye
  • One of the very few party games I enjoy – at all. And it’s freaking hilarious. – Sean Ross
  • Can’t wait! I love this game!!! I laugh until I cry every single time I play…- Tim Sowers
  • Played this Saturday night at Gen Con with a full table of 10. One of the best gaming experiences we had all weekend. We fit in two complete games in under an hour (and that included the time it took to learn the rules) and everyone had a great time. This was an easy buy and I’d have bought the game on the spot were it ready. – gescott01

Tortuga-BoxTortuga

  • Tried this at GenCon 2014 and really enjoyed it. – Arthur Rutyna
  • This one was a very fun time for us. Sure, there’s not a lot of strategy going on here but, the mechanics make for an enjoyable game. I like how the treasures move from the island to Tortuga throughout the game depending on how many crew members or boats you have available to you. We were a little confused at first but, really got into the swing of things and enjoyed ourselves. The best part to me were that the scores were super close, with the winner only winning by one point and the loser only losing by three. As I said, this is a very fun game! – Joseph Peterson

The new cover will now feature the Game of the Year stamp from Dice Hate Me!

Belfort

  • Had low expectations due to its fantasy setting, but it is surprising fun game to play. Another one where I feel every game I have played was time well spent. It has become a staple in my top 10. Expansion(s) have only enhanced it. – Bob Nash
  • Belfort is a very good worker placement game. I like how the points are score in this game. The guilds available being different each game adds a lot of replay value. The production of this game is one of the best that I have seen. The rules, the boards, the player aid, the cards and ressources (each with a different shape) are all great. – Dominic Morier
  • The theme and mechanics combine for a really good game. – James Hatfield
  • What a wonderful worker placement. It has lot going on, but it all seems to blend together seamlessly. The card drafting and area control are not to be overlooked. Overall, one of the best WP games I have ever played. – Brian Thomson

Bex-coverBelfort: The Expansion Expansion

  • This is my all time favorite so its a Always Wanna Play List for me – Adrian C
  • Great expansion for Belfort. When I buy this, I don’t see myself playing without the expansion anymore. – Miguel García

 

 

Train of Thought box artTrain of Thought 

  • This is such a great idea, having players guess a word but by only being able to speak 3 words and with having to incorporate the previous answer to explain the next. We loved this and for any fans of party word games, this is a winner. – Joseph Peterson

First video review of Belfort: The Expansion Expansion!

Let’s Level Up has done the first video review of Belfort: The Expansion Expansion! He goes through all the assistants,expansions and new guilds with close ups of each. In short – he really liked the expansion! Yay! Check it out:

And here’s Let’s Level Up’s review of the base game of Belfort – which he also liked!

Belfort: The Expansion Expansion – first mini review

A user by the name of Mark O’Reilly on boardgamegeek.com has written up the first comments I’ve seen for Belfort: The Expansion Expansion – and they’re glowing with praise! Yay! Here’s what he had to say:

Not only adds loads of goodiness to an already great game, it elevates the game to top shelf stuff.
Tons of variety now, extra guilds, the personnel are simply awesome – and compensate player order ( last pick first) , expansions to the base game buildings of Belfort city are simply genius!, adds a plethora of things to do.
Your cup will runneth over :-).

Ask yourself these two questions:

1) You own Belfort?
2) You enjoy Belfort?
If you answer Yes to above…
You simply have to buy this little box of tricks…
Best expansion I have ever purchased to date, adds to game in such a good way.
Thank you designers, artist and TMG.

 

Thanks so much for the kind words Mark! Really cool to read that you liked it.
