Royal Wedding Card Game
Royal Wedding (Four Goblins and a Wedding) is an interesting and fun board and card game hybrid to consider. This game has the players taking the role of scared goblin servants that serve the terrifying goblin princess who is preparing for a wedding.
The game takes place on a board that is divided into tiles. On these tiles are several elements namely your goblin, the terrifying princess, a dog, and other elements. Players take turns drawing cards each turn and play them. These cards movement cards with colors on them matching the colors of the walls.
Drawing a card with specific colors allows you to move towards the wall with the same color. There are also cards that allow you to move the princess and dog around. Thus, the objective of the game is to just keep away from all the terrifying elements.
The game is all about manipulating the board and the elements within it. It is made even more interesting when penalty cards come into play. These penalties introduce real-live elements that are sure to get a laugh out of the players. One example of a penalty is that the person who has it needs to keep their tongue out all the time while talking.
The game ends if all players are out for accumulating six penalty cards, with the victor being the person with the most treasure points or least penalty cards.
Cyber Wedding Board Game
For the geek wedding, we have Cyber Wedding. This game is all about a wedding that is held in the future and in space. As people from different time periods gather to perform a wedding, inevitably, the Cybermen invade through time and threaten to much everything up.
There are several objectives to the game which lend to various paths to winning. Players can either escape the Cybermen (and leave the other players at their wrath), defeat the Cybermen, or convert all players to Cybermen.
The game is played out in phases per player. These include reveal, attack, redraw, movement, Cybermen, Cybermen special abilities, and end phase. The player with the most victory points at the end of the game is the winner.
