On Sunday, my brother came into my room, and asked if I was busy.
I said I wasn’t, and asked why.
He said it’s because he came up with a game or sorts that will be a companion to the Tony Hawk games we play.
We basically have a bunch of cards telling us to achieve certain challenges and we get points depending on the challenge’s difficulty up to 3 points, and the first to 10 points wins.
The game works by putting the cards in a deck, and take turns to draw one. If it’s a challenge (there are other cards that award you an automatic point, lose you a point, deplete all of your points, skip a turn, etc.), that you draw, you decide whether you or another player does it.
The player that does it gets 5 tries to do it, and if they fail those 5 tries, each other player gets a shot each, and then the final player decides to either just take one point or try the challenge themself.
There is also one “Tony Hawk” challenge which awards you 4 points, a “Rodney Mullen” challenge worth 5 points and one almost-impossible challenge which, if you succeed, awards you 10 points, basically winning you the whole game.
The game is designed to work with essentially any Tony Hawk game (even Pro Skater 5!) so the challenges aren’t specific to any level or character.
We had a few games of this on Tony Hawk’s Underground on the PS2, and we had a blast! I have no doubt that we’ll do it again!
and we did have another few games of it later that night.
On Monday morning, I played a bit of Tony Hawk’s Underground, just farting around, really.
On Tuesday, I played some Tony Hawk’s Underground 2 Remix pn the PSP while I was out.
I also played around in THUG1, and ended up doing an 8 million point combo!
