Waddle Around Downtown as a Sightseeing Penguin in Waddle
WizKids has announced the upcoming release of Waddle, an adorable pattern movement game for 2-4 players!
In this fun, friendly, and accessible game from legendary video game designer Raph Koster 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 advanced 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!
The game features phenomenal art from Jackie Li, Waddle is the perfect combination of cute and strategic.
Out in February 2021, the game is for 2-4 players ages 10+. Game time is about 30 mintues. Retailing for $29.99 the game includes
- 32 Penguins (16 yellow and 16 red)
