World of Warcraft Miniatures
I get the occasional email from readers and yesterday I received one from someone called Ben telling me to check out a video on YouTube about the World of Warcraft minis game. I’m assuming he was Ben Gonyo, the creator of the movie, but he didn’t tell me his surname so I can’t be sure. The YouTube video had a link to Gamers Film, a website promoting a “humorous documentary film exploring the obsessed fan base of MMORPG games like World of Warcraft”. I watched the trailer on the site and it’s looks pretty interesting and funny.
Until I got the email I had no idea that a WoW minis game even existed although I wasn’t surprised to find out considering it’s got it’s own CCG too. Curiously enough though, my wife also mentioned the game to me today completely out of the blue as she’d seen the game being sold in a big craft shop and thought it was funny how it was being marketed to adults (she has absolutely no understanding of why grown men like computer games and toys – bless). I’m not sure if the game just had a big release or something – although I loved CCGs when I was younger and was hugely into them a few years ago, I’ve never had any interest in miniature games, part of the reason being that I think the paint jobs on them look rubbish.
Anyway, enough of my yacking, here’s that WoW minis video:
If you’ve played the minis game, let me know what it’s like. I’m curious to hear more about it.
