Retro Diary #74 – Tony Hawk: The Board(ish) game!

Sunday, July 9th, 2017

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!

On Sunday, I set the PS2 back up for my brother, who decided to play through Tony Hawk’s Underground multiple times to unlock all of the decks. He isn’t too happy about having to do it, but he’s doing it anyway, he’s dedicated, I’ll give him that!


On Monday, my brother started to create his story on Tony Hawk’s Underground and I played some Shaun Palmer’s Pro Snowboarder… which is kind of meh…


On Tuesday, A tried my hand at modding THUG Pro and adding my own models, A tried adding the Klonoa model, I followed this tutorial on how to rig models.

It turned into a disaster. I got the model imported in the game, but the rigging (meaning how the character moves in animation) was way off, and was very glitchy, and I couldn’t to save my life fix it.

I gave up and just imported my created Klonoa skater from THUG2 into THUG Pro, and that worked.

A few people have recognised the character, surprisingly, I didn’t expect anyone to, the Klonoa games are pretty rare, and kind of came and went, so that’s cool!

My Brother came in telling me his plans for the THUG story, and plans to create braching storylines, some of which rely on which sponsor you pick in the story, that souinds really cool. That’s something the actuial story mode doesn’t have


So on Wednesday, I’ve been playing around in THUG Pro online matches, and people have started to notice, and point out that my combos are reptitive, something I didn’t even realise.

It made me so embarassed that I haven’t played an online game since…


On Saturday, my brother, my sister and I played a Catchphrase card game my sister bought a day or so prior.

It’s a 3+ player game, one player is the host and the rest play against each-other.

My sister was the host so it was me vs my brother.

It was fun, though we struggled a lot with a couple of the catchphrases.
