Can you build the best battle goblin? If you're a keen gamer you'll have a chance to find out at the Cape Town launch of a new South African card based tabletop game.

News: You're Invited To The Worst Warriors Launch

The first copy of Worst Warriors, a new card based tabletop game developed by South African game developer Megan Hughes, has reached South Africa and so Hughes is organising a launch party to celebrate the official physical manifestation of a game that required a lot of hard work to develop over five years.

News: You're Invited To The Worst Warriors Launch

In April I reported that Worst Warriors is now available through The Game Crafter, an international web site that allows developers to publish their games and then sell them via the print-on-demand model. This first copy to reach South Africa, which is the one that will be showcased at the launch, is the developer's personal copy that was printed and shipped via the web site's store a few weeks ago.

I got an early look at Worst Warriors last week as I watched part of a four player game in action at a Make Games SA meetup. In the game, which supports two to four players, gamers have to grab and assign pieces of kit to different body parts of their battle goblin and then calculate attack and defence points as they battle other players around the table to become the last goblin standing.

The game takes a little bit of time to grasp and requires some maths effort to calculate the points (which are based on both what's on the player's cards and what comes up during dice rolls) as well as strategic thinking as players decide who to attack and how to defend.

However it becomes easier once everyone has had a chance to experience the attack and defence roles and then the humour, which manifests in the oddball collection of battle objects and is infused in the art style (by illustrator and video-game developer Dorianne Dutrieux, assisted by Dawid Strauss), comes to the fore.

The launch will be taking place on Saturday, 15 July 2017 from 18:00 at The Big Box Café at its new premises at 18 Roeland Street, Cape Town (under City Varsity and across the road from The Book Lounge). You can find more information at the Facebook event page.

You'll be able to meet Megan Hughes and try out Worst Warriors, as well as other games that The Big Box Café showcases.
