Squirmish just received its first Czech review at DeskoveHry.com!

“Squirmish je elegantní karetní řežba, při které všichni bojují se všemi a při tom mohou využívat řadu bláznivých schopností. Právě humor a lehkost je tím nejvýraznějším, čím dokáže novinka bodovat a to opravdu úspěšně.”

Google translate claims this means:

“Squirmish is an elegant card game where everyone struggles with everyone and can use a variety of crazy skills. It is the humor and lightness that is the most striking, so the new one can score and it is really successful.”

Elegantní!

Then there is:

“Po řadě partií můžeme svědomitě prohlásit, že je pro nás tahle hra ohromným překvapením. Ze všech stran z ní totiž čiší hratelnost, kterou vlastně nelze vysvětlit jednotlivými částmi. Povedlo se je totiž poskládat tak dobře, že si prostě budete partie jednoduše užívat. A nevadí vůbec, jestli je hra náhodná nebo chaotická. To se děje především zásluhou řady schopností.”

Which google translate claims means:

“After a number of games, we can make a conscious statement that this game is a great surprise for us. From all sides, it’s a gameplay that can not be explained by individual parts. It has been so easy to put together that you simply enjoy the game. And it does not matter if the game is accidental or chaotic. This is mainly due to a number of capabilities.”

Ohromným překvapením!

And don’t miss:

“Squirmish je nádherně bláznivou karetní hrou, kterou se vám chce hrát pořád dokola. To proto, že je od začátku do konce plná akce a hráči jsou do bitvy neustále zapojení. K tomu ještě přidejte vynikající grafické provedení a dostanete lahůdku, která se stane oblíbencem všech. Squirmish by se rozhodně měla stát adeptem pro lokalizaci, protože nám svojí bláznivostí připomíná extrémně úspěšného Munchkina. Tak snad její přijetí u hráčů bude podobně výtečné.”

Which google translate interprets as:

“Squirmish is a gorgeously crazy card game you want to play around all the time. This is because there is full action from start to finish and players are constantly involved in the battle. Add a great graphic design and get a treat that will become the favorite of all. Squirmish should definitely become an adept for localization because of our crazy reminders of an extremely successful Munchkin. So her admission to the players will be similarly excellent.”

Squirmish Reviewed at Sahm Reviews

Read the full review here!

“We’ve played a lot of card battle games over the years. While the theme generally varies from one to the next, the mechanics of these games are very similar… Seldom do I open a card battle game box and go, “Hmmm. That’s a cool component.” But that’s what happened when I opened Squirmish from Gamewright.” – Sahm Reviews

Squirmish Makes The Noise on Toys’ “Best New Games and Puzzles in 2018” List

Squirmish was one of 16 games picked as one of “The Best New Puzzles and Games in 2018” by The Noise on Toys!

You can read The Noise on Toys full review of Squirmish here (including the opinions of both a 12-year-old and an adult).

“A cute introduction to card battling games. In this version, game play is appropriately simplified – no complex drafting of your deck before the game, just random hands to play. We love the googly eye hit counters and the fun sense of humour, especially the quirky commentary that so aptly suits the off-the-wall characters and their odd-ball abilities.” – The Noise on Toys

Squirmish is #58!

Squirmish made #58 on Benjamin’s Board Game Blog’s top 100 list of games!

“This is a fun, crazy, card battle game that exceeded my expectations. There are so many abilities on the various beasts on the board, especially in a 3-4 player game, it can get really crazy. I usually am not a big fan of games making you say things aloud, but I actually like the added flair of the battle cry bonus, only because I feel it fits the tone of this game 100%. You know, it is kinda funny and hard to explain, because there are aspects of the game that are normally potential detractions for me: cards are text-heavy, gameplay is luck-heavy, and saying a phrase or word aloud as an actual mechanic. However, for what it sets out to be, the formula comes together in an appealing way to equal FUN.”

More Squirmish Reviews!

The new Gamewright edition of Squirmish has received a couple more reviews:

“It’s really fun to play, really funny cards, and really fun to see all the different types of abilities and how you can try to utilize those during each game.” – Landon Squire at How Lou Sees It

“Squirmish is a fun, family-friendly game which surprised me a bit with the depth of play. When I read the rules, I thought that it would be too kiddy-like. While the artistic style and the humorous text on the cards makes it appropriate for kids, the actions on the cards does give the gamer something to work with! … If you’re looking for a game to introduce the concepts of individual card actions and combat, this would be a good choice. It also will be a good filler for gamers looking for a few laughs mixed in with their gaming.” – Dale Yu at opinionatedgamers.com

Squirmish Reviewed at Hexagamers… and they are giving away a copy! (winner to be announced July 6th)

Squirmish was just reviewed at Hexagamers:

“While there is a lot of reading and there are a lot of details, it’s a neat battle game where players are constantly engaged. We found we were never bored because we were either watching battles and screaming at the dice for specific rolls, or we were fighting against other players (and screaming at the dice for specific rolls). There’s continual movement and moving in Squirmish, and we loved how interactive it is.” – Whitney at Hexagamers

Squirmish from Gamewright in Stores Now! Read the latest review!

The new edition of Squirmish from Gamewright is in stores now! It has many improvements over the old edition… including the frequently-requested improvement of square cards! Other improvements include increased game speed, a revised order of play, new card-back art, and googly-eye hit counters! You can see the updated rules here.

The updated edition received its first review at geeksvsgeeks.com the other day. Here is a short excerpt:

“Due to the quick setup, short game length (20-30min avg) and easy gameplay it is easy for everyone to jump in quick. We soon had a lively table of giggles, fist pumps and exciting shouting. The victory shout was especially deafening, especially because it involved stealing a card away from dear old dad.”

You can order directly from Gamewright here, and also see what local stores in your area have ordered copies.

You can order off of Amazon here (where you can also leave a review if you want to really help us out).

“There is a ton of replay ability here… All of the boys, including Dad, are fans of Pokémon and Squirmish has provided a fresh and simple take on card battling games. The variety that is found within the game is really amazing.” – 8 0f 10 Stars at The Dice Have It.

“Overall, I’ve had fun with Squirmish both with my kids and with adult players. I think it’s a lot of fun for families. The dice-based abilities mean that there’s still a good amount of chance involved, which gives less-experienced players a chance to take on more-experienced players, so gamers who want something with pure strategy may not like it quite as much. And don’t forget to shout your battle cries as you enter the fray!” – Jonathan H. Liu at Geekdad.

“It’s a simple card game, but it has a lot of meat to it… If you’re looking for a battling card game that you can introduce to people to maybe even get them into bigger and deeper games, this is a great introduction to do so.” – David at Sit Down Standard.

“It’s pretty straightforward and it’s quick to learn, but there’s a lot of different beasts and abilities.” – Alyssa at Sit Down Standard.

“I get several requests for Kickstarter previews every week. Recently, I was sent a request for coverage for a game called Squirmish that was designed by a gentleman named Steven Stwalley. My heart sunk a little bit when I saw the words “card” and “combat” in his elevator pitch, but that all went away when I looked over the art assets he gave me. Squirmish’s art is juvenile, obnoxious, and maybe even a little gross. In other words? I loved it.” – Stephen Duetzmann at Engaged Family Gaming.

“This game is made in direct response to collectible card games aimed at the pre-teen age group, such as Pokemon. There are battling monsters in this game, but unlike a collectible game, everything you need to play is included in one box. I’m a Pokemon Professor and Judge for the card game, so I was really very interested to try this out. It did not disappoint and actually exceeded expectations.” – Chandra Reyer at TSR’s Multiverse.

“I don’t know what to say other than you might like it and maybe others won’t. I am one of those who like it. I don’t think it will replace Pokemon for me, but it is much easier to carry around around than all my Pokemon equipment! It is not cute. However , there are some cute Squirmish monsters. Cawfeather, Opossrat, Killgor the Conquerer, Cupcake, and a few more. I say anyone 2nd grade to 9th might like it. The Battle Cries are really funny! But don’t attempt to make a Donald Duck voice for Pompaduck. Oh, and be sure to add Googly eyes. 😉 Heheheheheheheheh 🙂 (^._.^)/ Keep on Gaming! Meow!” – Chandra Reyer’s Daughter at TSR’s Multiverse.

“It’s a really good game! I like the fighting.” – Ty (age 9) at Board Gaming at Home.

“Ty’s age, absolutely brilliant game. If there’s one downside, it’s the sheer variety.” – Russell at Board Gaming at Home.

“I like all the little characters that have been made up… they’re great fun.” – Kelly at Board Gaming at Home.
