Greetings

Hey guys, I've been a Turtles fan forever. I'm from Australia and have been collecting various TMNT stuff most of my life. After years of hunting in secondhand bookshops for those rare early issues, I collected the entire run of Archie Comics' TMNT Adventures comics, and have nearly every TMNT boardgame, including the super hard to get Shredder's Citadel which only came out in Russia (but is officially licensed and is a very good game).

I have been working on my own fan project, it's a remake of the Pizza Power boardgame but based on Out of the Shadows, which will be a print'n'play game for anyone to try.

Thanks for the warm welcome guys. I guess I was introduced to the Turtles through the original Fred Wolf cartoon series, but I loved them enough to seek out any comics about them I could find. I only managed to find a few Mirage issues back then as they weren't distributed here in Australia, but the Archie series was sold in newsagencies so I really got into those. Some of my best memories are playing the arcade game with three friends and finishing it, and playing the original Pizza Power boardgame with them too.

Sounds fun! I've become interested in the various international releases of TMNT board games for their unique artwork and weird concepts. Some very interesting ones out there include the Hero Turtles 3D Game from the UK and Europe.

In the USA, the "Tower of Doom" was an impressive set to behold.

I own an unlicensed Korean board game and a Japan-exclusive mini-board game too.

That Pizza Power game features at least three major variations with distinct board art I've seen for the US, UK, and Greek markets.
