|Gaze upon it and know the joy of growing up in the 80s.|
Yes, we all know the franchise, although many often just refer to it simply as He-Man. And sure, why not? He is the star of it all, being the musclebound hero in his furry trunks off to foil the schemes of his horribly scarred uncle, Skeletor. Yeah, they're related. Keldor (his name before he became the lovable lord of drakness) and King Randor (He-Man's pop) are actually brothers. Holidays in the royal palace have to be awkward.
|Skeletor never ate moist delicious stuffing ever again.|
|It's actually quite a large set-up too.|
When you beat an enemy you get their sword, allowing you to face off against Skeletor another time if you lose in battle with him, which would normally result in you going back to the last spot labeled "Safe" on the board. Bearing this in mind, you will really want to land on the squares enemies are facing so you can get their swords. And when you use the sword, an enemy goes back on the field, meaning more battles. But wait, remember the traps? Oh yes, don't forget about the traps. Well, it's more like "trap" as I only saw just the one, so we had to move it when we got further down the board. The way they work is, if you land on a space bearing the unholy visage of Hordak, you have to take a risk on the trap going off. The device has a wheel that you must quickly spin, then press a button. If the button results in nothing, you're good to go. But if it works, you (and anyone in your vicinity) get crushed under the forces of Hordak and are sent back to the last "Safe" spot(s).
|Trust me, you don't want to mess with Hordak. He's basically a less lovable Skeletor.|
|Well, maybe his is a little bigger...|
We made our way down the line, weaving through battles. Stephie got to claim first blood as she defeated Spikor in epic combat, taking his word for her own. This was an especially proud moment, as he had defeated me so I felt she had avenged me. Continuing on, everything seemed to be going fine until...I landed on a Hordak face. I spun the wheel, hit the button, and...got Cody and I both flattened under the forces of evil. Oh, the shame!
|Mantenna teabagged poor Orko while Snout Spout got fondled by Modulok. It was a dark day for Eternia.|
|He's got the power of something Mattel's lawyers said I couldn't say!|
|Skeletor's ranks are a bit thin.|
|He-Man shall never escape my inescapable net of doom! Nyahhhh!|
|BEAST MAN, YOU BOOB!!!|
