GOOFBALLS!: A Guidebook to Sillies and Stooges
Publisher: Wicked Basement
by Justin L. [Verified Purchaser]

The Good
The Artwork is the really the best part of this product, even in spite of some of the more? immature references. There?s actually some useful stuff in here like a few of the Prestige Classes and one or two of the magic items. It?s up to individual readers and DMs to find and select which ones are best.

A lot of the writing is very cute. Too cute.

The Bad
Those of you expecting Munchkin Redux won?t find it. Goofballs! Is very geared towards a more mainstream crowd of gamer, those who grew up watching Sesame Street and reading the Cat in the Hat, but now watch movies like ?Dumb and Dumberer? and ?American Pie? looking for campaign ideas, instead of ?Monty Python? and reading ?Discworld.?

For me, the Sophomoric Toilet Humor is a big turn off. The rest of the public can probably revel in the number of ass-related jokes throughout the product for all I care.

Otherwise, there?s too much stuff that you can?t use in a balanced game, even a humorous game like Munchkin. It?s for jokes, really. And then the jokes aren?t always funny.

The Ugly
The Diva art. The knock-knock joke. The Lyrical Gangsta?s example flow. The muppets are very scary, but somehow funny. The puppy. Okay, so I lied. The muppets are just frightening.

Final Notes:
That about sums it up, really. It?s fun. It?s somewhat funny. There?s nothing really outlandish here that isn?t a build off of pre-existing ideas and such.

Once you wade past about 10 pages of fecal jokes and toilet humor, there's actually a half-decent silly game supplement buried within.

Final Verdict: All in all? 7/10, or a 3 out of 5. I can say it?s a strong and solid effort.
