"Has anybody noticed a horrific lack of martial arts in the board game world?" Game creator Andy Mahoney poses the question, promising that Bodega Brawl, a new tabletop game developed and produced locally, will "fill that gaping hole."
Other Worlds Games & Comics will host a release party for Bodega Brawl from 2-4pm on Saturday, November 20. The free event will feature tournament play for ages 5 and up and copies of the game for purchase.
Bodega Brawl is a martial arts-based tabletop game for two players literally dreamed up by Multnomah Village resident Mahoney. Mahoney, pastor at Riversgate Church and life-long fan of all things martial arts (ranging from video games to movies to Kung Fu pajamas), says the concept came to him in a dream one night about five years ago.
In production since 2019, the game was well-received at this year's Comic Con, where 100 advance copies quickly sold out.
