Toy Fair previews from Griddly Games included Wise Alec expansions, an update to the Wise Alec base game, and Mosaic 4.
Wise Alec is a combination trivia and activity game. The updated base game adds more trivia questions, as well as board spaces where a player’s opponent gets to choose the question card but the player earns double points for a correct answer. Wise Alec Travel Game & Expansion Sets include Nature Nuts, Sports Buffs, and Civilize This. They can work as either expansions to the original or as standalone games and include a die, a set of topic cards, and new Wise Alec cards customized to the theme of the set.
Mosaic 4 is an abstract strategy game where players simply try to get four pieces of their color in a row. The twist is that every other row and column can shift, making this a game that requires a bit of focus but one that still held my attention on the busy show floor.
As the designer and developer we are thrilled that Purple Pawn loved our game! This is a picture of our prototype. Once the final copy is ready -(in May) it will showcase a matt finish and thicker playing pieces.
This is seriously one game that I never get tired playing or watching. In all the play testing we did, the comments were consistant that people really enjoyed the game. With the added dimension of shifting, this abstract game was a huge hit.
Thanks Purple Pawn for taking the time to play and enjoy Mosaic 4.
