Hairy T Reviews: Gaming – Hipster Dice


Hairy T Reviews Hipster Dice Version


Hipster Dice

“So, have you guys listened to the insane beats of Mystery Skulls? Have you heard about Donut Head being the non-mainstream fashion? What about the espresso-exclusive cafe that serves their shots in Animal Pelvises?”


Calvin Ung Author Profile Finished SmallerHipster Dice is one of the most intriguing bluffing games that you haven’t heard of – which makes it hip, unless you’re totally basic.  Your main objective is to convince a group of friends about something that is non-mainstream or is unheard of – in a category you roll on the Hipster die (Music, Literature, Films, Food, Drinks or Fashion). You score points for making believable claims (“I’m getting a pet frog that “croaks” by waving his rear legs like an air-traffic controller”) and the chance to score more for challenges on “false” claims.  Players then prove their claims by searching the internet and showing proof or spoof.  If your claim is true you get an extra point, but if it’s false, then your turn ends.  The hippest among you will be the first to 5 points – lie, bluff and bluster your friends until you’ve won the title of Ultimate Hipster!  Overall, I’d describe Hipster Dice as a great little party game – for an even littler investment.

Everyone knows that comics aren’t just for kids anymore but sometimes finding the right “grown-up” comic can be difficult – take a wrong turn down the Vertigo isle and you can find yourself reading books so gritty they should come with a pack of loose gravel. Thankfully however, there are still books like Marvel’s Daredevil on the shelf to provide just the right mix of mature plots, character development and classic comic action. Whether it’s rising star Mark Waid, or veteran comics god Brian Michael Bendis, the adventures of Matt Murdock: The Man Without Fear are guaranteed to help you learn to love “mature” comics again:
