Twistybug is card number 17. Twistybug was just a regular insect until she discovered the once-popular dance craze the twist. Dancing to this, along with the mashed potato, the monkey and the funky chicken caused her to form her unusual exoskeleton (bugs, of course, have no spine with which to shake their buggy booties, so she had to make do without one).
When Twistybug does her special ability Chubby Chigger after attacking, she twists away, moving to any spot in the Squirmish.
Twistybug is just a little bug (with only 8 hitpoints)… but she has a nasty bite. Her bendybite does three damage, plus one damage for each card in the attacked opponent’s victory pile.
Did you know mosquitoes, with their filthy, potty mouths, kill more people annually than sharks, alligators and bears combined? Well, Twistybug is not a mosquito, but she eats mosquitoes for breakfast, and has amassed quite the collection of mosquito-borne diseases in the process. Sure, she her bite carries the obvious ones, like malaria and west nile… but have you even heard of such rarities as the Saskatchewan Stomach Spewer and Leg-grow-from-your-head-itis? She carries them, and many, many more. And she never, ever brushes her teeth.
Squirmish is now on Kickstarter here. This is a series of posts designed to help you learn a bit about some of the cards before you play the game.
