Wizkids SmurfsOur friends at ICV2 have announced a new SMURFS game by Wikzids.

Before you smurf off the handle, please know that there is no mention of this being a HeroClix game. Like all good game companies, Wizkids is clearly trying to expand their library to go beyond just one game type.

According to ICV2,
At the New York Toy Fair WizKids showed off its The Smurfs: No Smurf Left Behind Collectible Game, which will be released in the late summer in conjunction with the debut of the 3-D Smurfs Movie, a live-action/CGI hybrid film that hits theaters on August 3rd.

A WizKids spokesperson described the game to ICv2 as a “chase game” that can be enjoyed by Smurfs fans of all ages.

That being said, we at HeroClix World applaud Wizkids for trying new things. As a matter of fact, as a new parent I'm pretty excited about this game all around. Games with grid maps (or hex maps) is just smurfy as far as I'm concerned. And there's more than enough Smurfs out there to justify this as a "collectible" game. If they stick with the single-figure blind booster model (which they're pushing on HeroClix), this would be very appealing at the cash register of game stores and non-game stores alike.

The main questions are, "how are the game mechanics" and "will the movie suck?". The Jonah Hex HeroClix set wasn't exactly a super-hot seller, and that might have to do with the poor reception of the movie.

Still though, I honestly believe a game with strong game mechanics can survive a bad movie tie in, and I have faith in Wizkids to deliver the goods on this new smurfy game. And don't forget, Neil Patrick Harris is in the new movie, so it already gets two smurfs up in my book.

Will you give this game a try?

Your Comments:
I think its a good move on their part. Heroclix is somewhat complicated, and with games like these they can attract younger people. I can't see myself playing this, but I can see myself buying it for my daughter. Smurfs is a gateway clix!

What the Smurf?! This is some Smurfing garbage!

Posted by: .... on 11/12/2011 5:49:09 PM

Posted by: bp29 on 11/2/2011 9:26:15 AM

Posted by: quicksova on 7/24/2011 6:52:52 AM
why! why! why!

No sir, this is not a fake as far as I know. You are correct, that link doesn't work, but that's happened in the past.

Posted by: The Le on 4/13/2011 8:12:46 AM
THIS IS A JOKE!!! didn't you notice the "COLLECT ALL 8!"? give a break! besides the site doesn't exists

Posted by: Rex on 4/13/2011 7:36:38 AM
Thumbs down. I hate this.

Posted by: bobby on 4/8/2011 11:33:00 AM
Thank god this does NOT appear to be HC compatible. Even though... Onslaught smashing surfs would be endlessly entertaining.

Posted by: The Blue Hope on 4/8/2011 9:10:20 AM
Aw, shucks... my daughter'll love 'em...

Posted by: MEsch on 4/7/2011 11:36:30 AM
I only wish this were an April Fool's gag.

Posted by: dittobeetle on 4/7/2011 10:43:42 AM
Uh...How about more Alien, Predator, and maybe City of Heroes/Villains Heroclix?? Come on, guys...

Posted by: Owlman166 on 3/15/2011 9:47:12 AM
i would like final fantasy clix or disney kingdom hearts clix that will be cool

Posted by: michael on 3/10/2011 7:41:20 PM
i don't think the jonah hex set did very well bcuz the stats were, no offense, crap

Posted by: geminimerc on 2/27/2011 5:52:23 PM
This may be amusing... for my 5 y/o daughter... I honestly don't see me going for this in any other way.

Posted by: MEsch1974 on 2/21/2011 7:58:13 PM
Mmmmm!!! money is not everything!!! Sucks!!!

Posted by: JasonCR on 2/20/2011 2:02:01 PM
don't like the idea

Posted by: guylife on 2/19/2011 7:55:19 PM
Serious mistake all these new games and the surfs?! Come on there's soooo many better more deserved titels with a far bigger backround and potential longevity: predator(s), terminator, and captain freekin scarlet

Posted by: Why!!!! on 2/19/2011 6:45:57 PM
It seems that they are making the same mistakes that the old wizkids made. Instead of focusing on improving the quality of a few core product lines, they are tryinging to introduce as many new product lines as possible, which will be quickly abandoned in favor of other product lines. I say 20-1 that they cease support for the Smurfs line before the end of two years, if it makes it past the first.

Posted by: Kenneth. on 2/18/2011 4:41:57 PM
My daughter is already excited by both the movie & the game, I'm sure we'll end up getting it.

Posted by: Davyd on 2/18/2011 2:30:16 PM
i'm all smurfed up about it

Posted by: gene on 2/18/2011 2:11:58 PM
yes I will. Can't wait to try it with my children. My oldest really likes the Gremlins game, so I think he will like this too.

Posted by: Henk on 2/18/2011 11:48:45 AM
Not for me. Reminds me of Creepy Freaks.

Posted by: Hodak on 2/18/2011 11:34:24 AM
No thanks.

Posted by: Nightwing-fan on 2/18/2011 11:12:53 AM
No, I won't give this a try. Thumbs down.
