    Did anyone else get this game? It's a really simple game, but fun. By no means is it some blockbuster (ha) like MarioKart Wii or Metroid Prime 3, but it's good for a quick play. Especially when I get frustrated by some other game, I pop in Boom Blox and blow a bunch of stuff up, and I'm happy :).

    After a few month without a Wii I picked 1 up yesterday for Mario Kart. Boom Blox is a game I was also looking to pick up. Unfortunately it was sold out everywhere I went. I've placed an order on an online gaming retailer and should have a copy in the next few days. I can't wait to play it, this game looks like a heap of fun to play with friends.

    Kind of want to, we'll see.

    Looks like a decent title.

    I was at a local EB Games at lunch time yesterday. They received some copies, so I picked 1 up. The game is great, great use of the Wiimote. Multiplayer is a blast. I guess I'll give my 2nd copy when it arrives to my niece.

    Competitive Multiplayer!

    Ok, so I admit that this game got pushed back for me. Can you blame me? MarioKart, Brawl, Wii Fit, plus other games I haven't beaten yet. Anyway, a recent Penny Arcade comic and article (http://www.penny-arcade.com/comic/2008/6/9/ and http://www.penny-arcade.com/2008/06/09/) made me pick this back up and try out multiplayer, which I hadn't done yet. As Penny Arcade mentioned, Boom Blox has an odd way of navigating through, so it's easy to miss how much fun there is in the competitive multiplayer mode.

    God. D**m. If you have this game, get a friend (or three) over and play this. It is AWESOME. I recommend skipping the hockey type games, but the first two types of it are f**king great. And Warlords is, of course, awesome.

    Penny Arcade has never clicked for me. I'm not in their humor flow I guess.

    I didn't know about the muti-player option. Thanks. Another reason to buy it.

    Hopefully there will be a price drop for this...there's just too many other titles to buy right now!
