Puzzle Strike Board Game Video Review

 

Puzzle Strike is a card game played with cardboard chips instead of cards that simulates a puzzle video game called puzzle fighter that, in-turn, simulates the fighting game street fighter that is emulated in puzzle fighter

If you don’t understand any of that, that’s ok! Puzzle Strike is a complete game in a box that has the fun of a customizable card game without the marketing scheme of selling you parts of the game in random packs. You build your deck *as* you play the game. Every game is different because the bank starts with a different set of chips each game. Also, there are 10 characters to choose from, each with different gameplay. Between all that, there are over 411 MILLION starting conditions in a 4-player game.

A built-in comeback mechanic means that when you’re on the edge of losing, you’re also able to do even more combos than usual.

Shuffling cards takes too long and is boring, so in Puzzle Strike you just put your cardboard tokens in a bag and shake them up to shuffle! Plus, it’s pretty ballin’ to play a game with chips. Play it on your yacht, impress potential mates, etc.

Though the game is fun even if you’re terrible at it, it’s also balanced for high level play by veteran asymmetric game balancer David Sirlin (Street Fighter HD Remix, Puzzle Fighter HD Remix, Kongai, Yomi, and Flash Duel.)

Puzzle Strike contains:

  • Almost 350 cardboard chips
  • 4 cloth bags
  • 8-page full color rulebook
  • Colorful box with inside designed to separate the chips by type, for storage

Upgrade your puzzle striking with several new components to enhance aesthetics, immersion and accessibility as well as new puzzle chips and rebalanced character chips.

This upgrade pack includes:

  • 4 identical playmats
  • 4 unique screens to hide your chips without holding them in your hand
  • 3 new puzzle chips x 5 copies each
  • 15 blank chips
  • A rebalanced set of the 10 characters in the base set (30 character chips)

 

The playmats help you separate your gem pile and other game zones, plus they look great! They’re made of the same high quality mouse pad material as the Yomi playmats, and you could even use them as mouse pads.

This upgrade pack is compatible with the second edition (pink boxed) version of Puzzle Strike, and not the first edition Deluxe with the wooden chips.
