Waldo's Weekly - Finally!


Recommended Posts

For those who are wondering: there won't be miniatures in the Bayou Bash board game (but the Malifaux Bayou Starter Box models can be used for anyone who wants to bring the game to that level).

Bayou Bash is a fast-paced board game where most races take about an hour - just enough time to rebuild the track however you want and start again.

We decided to go with custom meeples for Bayou Bash so that players of all types can enjoy the experience of the rapid and chaotic gameplay without having to pay for the extra cost of miniatures.

We'll have more details soon!

Humpf i had hoped for a wacky game with some crazy rider/"horse" miniatures. But looking at this, it seems even conversions or existing kits (e.g. warwabbit) wont fit on the board.

I am disappointed. Pretty Cover art, but otherwise boring and generic asthetics with the board an meeple shown :(

yeah, i can see being disappointed by its visual style, especially with how... unfortunate the animals their riding look, maybe the boards a bit bright?

but i wouldn't say im necessarily disappointed , gameplay is the most important thing to me so until i see how that goes im holding out on opinions

but one question for kyle/"someone in the know", does it still use dice like its age old previews?

The re-playability with different track layouts is a key selling point. Makes the game different every time you play. Lowering the price point and have the models as an upgrade was a good call.

Agreed, but I don't see how you can fit 40mm base models on this track...

Cannot found the pics now, but I believe I had seen some pics of extra racer models that were not shown in the cover art. There were a Silurid rider, a Whiskey Gamin rider, and a Gremlin with jetpack iirc. Are they still inside the game?

Am I correct in thinking that the picture of the components is really underselling the size of the race track?

Because I thought that the figures that we had seen previewed at previous Gen Cons for this game were on 50mm bases...

Going off the art and previewed models, those models are now likely to make up the Bayou Starter Set.  We'll obviously find out more when that officially gets previewed.

So we just need now the pandemic to go away so @Clousseau can run a Bayou Bash wild night the Friday before the UK Nationals... man, do I miss tournaments! 

I guess it's been confirmed elsewhere, but can we set up the track the way we want it or is it fixed to be always an oval? Two boards joined together, twice the fun!

Yep, you can build the track however you want. The game will come with a bunch of track pieces (straight pieces and curves) that are double-sided with different obstacles on each side. The loop track in the image above is just an example of what you can build.

Now that's a brilliant idea. Non Malifaux Friday games with Bayou Bash, Puppet Wars & EBO
