Pick-Omino

Never thought I'd see a week of cute animals and creatures here on the site, but here we are. So let's close out the week with this old favorite, push-your-luck game by Reiner Knizia : Pick-Omino (also known as HeckMeck if you have the German version). 

 

 

Also, did you know Barnes once interviewed Reiner Kniza? You can listen to it here: Interview with Reiner Knizia

 

So what do you think of Pick-Omino/HeckMeck? Do you love it or hate it? Do you still play it?

A couple of years ago Repoman pulled out a "mini" version of this while we were guzzling beers at the local club. It has become one of my favorites and follows me to parties, bars, and even to work. Easy to lean and fun to play!

Fantastic game. I can't imagine a Trashfest without.

Great little dice game and the worm dominos have that satisfying clink and heft to them.

Those little dice are evil though. As soon as you pass up a worm for a couple of 5s, the dice will straight fuck you and give you worms no longer.

If you don’t like Pick-omino then you’re a monster.

I like Pick-Omino a lot (I have the tiny mint-tin edition), but I refuse to play it with more than four players.

LOL. I recommend buying HeckMeck. It's only $14.99 and it comes in a smaller box. Also there is a new expansion for it called Extrawurm.

Small plug - if you buy it from Amazon using the links at the bottom of the article (link to article in the top of this thread) the site gets 4% of the purchase price.

Gotta grab that Safety Worm when it shows up.

I've never heard of this game which makes me a terrible person, but that Amazon price is a bit of a deterrent.

4% of $129,999 = $5,199.96.

Love this game. Love the normal version I have. Love the tiny chewing tobacco travel version.

Yah, Pickomino goes for retarded prices per Amazon algorithms because it is technically out of print but get a box with Heckmeck. It's the exact same game. Best $15 you'll ever spend on a game.


Stealing somebody's tile is so satisfying.

I've never played it. I've only seen it played once during a Call of Cthulhu LCG tourney at FFG event center 5 years ago.

Based on comments here, I am missing out.

I've got the Heckmeck edition. It's great - probably play it at least once a month as it's an excellent filler.
