A Goofy Movie Game Review


Players can collect Scrapbook cards as they travel to a Powerline concert in this board game inspired by Disney’s “A Goofy Movie.”

Funko Games just released A wacky movie gamea family board game inspired by the 1995 Disney movie A wacky movie.

We had the chance to try A wacky movie game.

What is this game about?

A wacky movie game is inspired by the road trip across the country that Goofy and his son Max take in the film A wacky movie. Players will be challenged to collect as many points as possible as they head west across the United States, with the game ending at the Powerline concert in Los Angeles.

A wacky movie game is for 2-4 players with a recommended age of 7+. Each game has an expected play time of 30 minutes.

How do you play this game?

A wacky movie game is played in rounds. To start each round, all players will simultaneously play one of their character cards associated with the character figure they chose before the game started (Max, Roxanne, PJ, or Bobby). Each character card has a number in the corner and a colored background (pink, orange, blue, or green) that corresponds to a color-coded spot on the game board that contains a “scrapbook card”. Scrapbook cards are worth points at the end of the game. A Goofy figure will move through these color-coded locations throughout the game, which we’ll discuss in more detail in a moment.

After the character cards have been played, the group will compare the colors and numbers on the cards. If two or more players have played a card of the same color, the numbers on these cards are compared and the player who played the card with the highest number collects the Scrapbook card from the place corresponding to the color code on the board . If only one player has played a card of a certain color, no comparison is necessary and the player can retrieve the Scrapbook card from the associated color-coded location on the board. Once a Scrapbook card is removed from the board, a new card is drawn from the draw pile to replace it.

Each Scrapbook card has a symbol, such as a camera or a fishing rod, and these symbols are worth a varying number of points at the end of the game. Some cards are worth points on their own, while others are only worth points if collected in pairs or groups.

For example, each card with a “cactus” symbol is worth one point, while a group of three cards with a “car” symbol is worth six points. Some symbols are also associated with bonus points at the end of the game. For example, the player who has collected the most Scrapbook cards with a “microphone” symbol will receive five bonus points at the end of the game.

This point system adds a light strategy to the experience, as players can choose which card symbol(s) they wish to collect as they attempt to gain more points than their opponents.

Once the Character Cards have been played and the associated Scrapbook Cards have been collected, players can move their figures around the map of the United States on the game board. Rather than rolling dice to move, the Players can move one or two spaces each turn, this number being determined by the character card they played at the start of the turn. Specifically, each character card contains text relating to the number of spaces the player can move if they play that card.

Depending on where players land on the map, they may be able to collect an additional Scrapbook card, collect a bonus token, or roll the game dice. Bonus tokens can be used to earn bonus points at the game. end of the game, or they can allow players to instantly collect a Scrapbook card of their choice from one of the color-coded slots on the board.

The dice, meanwhile, has symbols representing Goofy and Powerline. If players roll the Goofy symbol, they collect the Scrapbook card from the color-coded spot next to the Goofy figure, then move the Goofy figure to the next color-coded spot on the board. If players roll the Powerline symbol, they will move the Powerline figure on its path to the bottom of the board (this path is separate from the paths players use). Some faces of the die have more than one symbol, so it is possible for both actions to take place in a single turn.

The game will end when the Powerline figure reaches Los Angeles or when the Scrapbook deck of cards runs out. If players reach the Powerline concert in Los Angeles before the end of the game, they will receive bonus points (the first player to arrive receives 20 bonus points, the second player receives 15 bonus points, and so on). The player with the most points at the end of the game wins.

Is this game fun to play?

A wacky movie game is a decent tabletop game. The gameplay is simple and it’s easy enough to teach new players, but we weren’t blown away by the experience.

At the same time, whether or not a group likes A wacky movie game will likely be heavily influenced by whether or not they have seen and enjoyed the film that inspired them. The game features artwork, symbols, and text from the movie, and if players haven’t seen the movie, they probably won’t appreciate these references.

In fairness, I think it’s important to point out that I had never seen A wacky movie before watching it so I could play that game, so I didn’t go into the experience with nostalgia for the movie. I also admit that I was really not impressed by the film. All in all, this means that I’m probably not the target audience for this game, and players who like the movie more may enjoy the game more.

What is the final verdict?

A wacky movie game is a straightforward experience that will likely appeal to fans of the film more than anyone else. If your family has never watched the movie that inspired the game, there’s nothing special here to make it a must-watch.

A wacky movie game is available now for $23.99.
