CMON Tinker Around With Contraptions In Gizmos

April 6, 2018 by brennon

CMON have another rather strange looking game for you to add to the mix. Here we have Gizmos which has some awesome mechanical elements to it AND it comes with oodles of marbles!

Gizmos - Box

Here’s what the game is all about…

“In Gizmos, you want to build engines — engines within the game to get things done faster. Using the four types of energy marbles, plucked from the 3D marble dispenser, you purchase and construct new additions to your works. As you build, new attachments can trigger chain reactions, letting you do even more on your turn. Whoever builds the greatest machine and collects the most victory points wins!”

…and if you’re wondering what the marble dispenser looks like; check out this wild piece of board gaming cardboard!

Gizmos - Marbel Dispenser

I really like the idea of this game, using neat actual ‘mechanics’ to get the marbles down onto the tabletop and then working on perfect combos in order for your contraptions to come to life.

Gizmos - Marbles & Holders

It reminds me a lot of Potion Explosion which is another of the neat CMON games which includes marbles as a component. Are you going to be keeping an eye on this one?
