Any mini-Shrine of the Silver Monkey, and if so, did it take forever to put together? :D

They're three of the cards in the larger deck. (I haven't taken them out of the shrink wrap yet.)

Bothered my local Target for a game, and wrote up a quick overview of what's in the box and how the game works. Tomorrow I'll try to play it.

Thanks to the efforts of Mike Klauss, we can now verify that pretty much every Target has these. (Entering your ZIP Code will unlock the door to the King's Storeroom.)

Not every store has them out on the shelves though. Some are still keeping them in the stockroom.

There's a new wave of Target-exclusive games coming out starting on the 31st, so most of them are probably waiting til then.

I have been to three Targets at this point with no luck. However, half the games on their shelves have been on clearance, pretty much confirming that they're renovating their board game section. If your Target doesn't have it on the shelves yet, the least you can do is clean up on highly discounted board games (some as much as 75% off)
Fact To Make You Feel Old: Just about every contestant who appears in a Price is Right Teen Week episode from here on out has only known a world where Drew Carey has been the host.

Apparently I've been told if you show a Target associate the photos I took of the box, particularly the bar code, they'll go in the back and get it for you.

Sonar is probably the one people will want to get if they care about games.

So what did they do to change up Captain Sonar?

The short version:

1) Lower the number of hits required.
2) Eliminate the first mate and engineer roles.
3) Include turn-based rules only, and not real time.

They've got a Bob Ross-themed game coming out in October that looks interesting...

(and I wonder that if this does well, they might consider reprinting the original Double Dare game- it's the same company in Pressman, and there's bound to be a lot more nostalgia buyers for that than this)
