But Wait, There’s More! – Mini Review

Hey, Jon Spencer Here!

Today I’d like to tell you about this exciting board game called, “But Wait, There’s More!” a game that can be experienced with 3-10 players! Imagine yourself as one of those infomercial people having to sell products like a hammer or key. Not just any ol’ hammer or key though, oh no sir! Your hammer may be able to solve all your night-time worries or expand on command. Did I mention you were being timed? You have to give your spiel fast or risk those pesky viewers from changing the channel on you. Sounds exciting right? But wait, there’s more! As you pitch your idea you have to include an on-the-fly feature making for one wacky experience. So what are you waiting for?!? Grab your copy of, “But Wait, There’s More” for just… wait, this game is out of print now?

The blue cards are products, the pink cards are features

That’s pretty much an example of the game right there. it’s very similar to another game called Snake Oil but I love this one a lot more! Unfortunately, as I was writing this I learned that the game is unavailable right now. If you do manage to find a copy of this one for cheap someplace pick it up because it is one of the most fun party games I have. It’s always a huge hit!

To see the game in action and get a second opinion, check out The Dice Tower’s review of the game which I’ve posted below:

Tom recommends this too!

  1. This sounds like good fun — though obviously it’ll be fairly dependent on who you’re playing with being reasonably outgoing. I like this kind of game under the right circumstances — stuff like Dixit and Say Anything are probably the closest things I’ve played myself.

    1. Alas, the one drawback, if people don’t get Into it a bit then it isn’t much fun. That said, you’d be surprised how easy it is to get folks in the mood.

      Dixit is great but haven’t played the other. If you like Dixit I recommend Mysterium, which I’ve also reviewed 🙂

  2. Snake Oil is what I first thought of when I saw this. I’ve seen Snake Oil spotted at some bargain outlets and secondhand outlets, so it’s probably better right now until if/when But Wait, There’s More gets a reprint.
