New Starcraft 2 custom maps: Raynor's Party and Roachsnake.

The other day Blizzard featured two new custom map games, Raynor's Party and Roachsnake. And yes, they are exactly what they sound like. Sadly, I don't have any screenshots to go with this post. :(

Roachsnake is a snake clone. Plain and simple. Each player controls their queen and the object is to run around collecting zerglings. Each zergling you collect adds a roach to the back of your queen that follows you like a tail. If you run into your opponent's or your own tail as well as walls you die and have to recollect the zerglings you lost. Players vote on a number at the start of the game and the first player to collect the set number of roaches wins the game.

Raynor's Party is the Starcraft 2 version of Mario Party and despite how it sounds, is actually pretty fun. Each player takes turns selecting one of 8 mini games to play. The winner of each round gets a point and the person with the most at the end wins. It features mini games such as Tassadar Teaches Typing, where Tassadar says a phrase and players are required to correctly type it out or be psionic stormed to death, Lurker Rally: EXTREME where players control lurkers and run through tracks filled with hostile enemies, and my favorite, Hungry Hungry Ultralisk, where players control stalkers and are chased by a giant Ultralisk.

Both maps are very well made, and if you're a Starcraft 2 player you should really check them out.
