One movie that has been collectively watched over 250 times between all of the Gadgets 4 Guys staff is the movie Goonies. It was the definition of what made a movie great in the 80’s and defined a genre that was near and dear to any kid that was born before 1985. Goonies had everything that encompassed a kids imagination from pirates and adventure to random “booby” traps and scoring a treasure to save an entire town. Who can forget the classic scenes with Mouth walking Rosalita through the house and “interpreting” everything Ms. Walsh was saying? Who can forget Mama Fratelli running through the caves and grunting while slapping her two bumbling sons in the back of the head? Who can forget the way that Chunk was able to do the Truffle Shuffle and make every kid in America laugh while watching?
We loved this movie because it really was one that represented the 80’s and sparked every kids imagination to go up and see what kind of treasures their parents attic might hold. We also love card games so when we heard that there was a KickStarter campaign to create Goonies playing cards (which got funded) and now gives us the ability to relive each character while playing Circle of Death, we had to feature them. When you get a deck of cards that offer a design or look to them that can also generate good conversation during the game, it can make the game much more fun and entertaining. The backing of each card also has designs from the movie including One Eyed Willy himself (just don’t take his gold). If you play cards on the regular and want to see everybody get a smile on their face, get a deck or two of these cards. Click here to purchase the Goonies Playing Cards.
