July 21, 2011: Card Of The Week: Blade Gun
It's time to sneak a peek at another card from Munchkin Axe Cop! This week, we look at one of my favorite weapons: Blade Gun.
Weapons with a +4 bonus are nice, and the "2 Hands" limitation isn't particularly restricting, considering I usually end up with an item that grants extra hands. What tickles my funny bone every time I look at this card is the sheer insanity of the action depicted. You shoot the gun and leap onto the projectile -- that alone trips the Absurd-o-Meter. But then you surf the blade through the Bad Guy's body. The mind boggles, but that's pure Axe Cop. (Remember: It's written by a 5 year old. That's how we . . . er, they think.)
Oh, and the pseudo-onomatopoeia of "Wound!" is the cherry on the top. Of course that's the sound a giant blade makes when surfing through a body.
Blade Gun is one of the 168 cards in Munchkin Axe Cop, shipping this October.
