Cover of Hecmeck Deluxe - a crowd of excited birds stands at the barbecue where the worms are roastingHeckmeck Deluxe

This is a brilliantly simple and brilliant little game from Reiner Knizia with the entertaining theme of birds barbecuing worms. It comprises a set of chunky numbered tiles rather like Mah Jongg tiles in size and composition and a set of dice. Players roll the dice, aiming to get the score (and worms) needed to take a tile from those available or from another player.

Once all the tiles have gone, players tot up their scores (in worms!) to find the winner. It's fast, furious and fun.

The 'de luxe' edition comes in a chunky tin and contains both the original Heckmeck am Bratwurmeck game and the Extrawurm expansion (which I also stock separately).

For 2-7 players, aged 8+, playing time 30 minutes: 20.00 (16.67 outside the EU)

The German publisher's multi-lingual edition is no longer available (though the rules can be downloaded from their website: Zoch Verlag), so I now supply the German edition with English rules. I also have the expansion, Heckmeck Extrawurm, and the new Deluxe edition.

For 2-7 players, aged 8+, playing time 20 minutes: 13.00 (10.83 outside the EU)

Cover art from Heckmeck Extrawurm: the special characters argue over the wormsHeckmeck Extrawurm

There are quite a few things in this expansion. First, of course, is the extra worm. Or worms, since there are two new worm tiles, numbered 11 and 13. Then there are victory point chips. The major addition, however, is a set of worm pawns. These start on specific worm tiles and are taken with the tile (but can be lost again). Each of them provides a special power to the owning player, adding a further dimension to the game.

For 2-7 players (with base game), aged 8+, playing time 20 minutes: 13.00 (10.83 outside the EU)
