It’s also October.
I mean, seriously, can it really get that much better than this? Oh, yeah, *puts on some Type O Negative while working on the post* There we go.
Anyway, you want ’em, so here’s your reviews for the week.
Today we have: Patchwork, Epic Roll: Eclipse, Arcadia Quest, Tutti Frutti, True Messiah, Eclipse, Trickerion: Legends of Illusion, Dodge Dice, Grifters, Codenames: Pictures, and Agamemnon.
It’s the Saturday before Gen Con. A week from now we’ll be shoulder-deep in the show.
Of course, that means this weekend is full of running around like a chicken with its head cut off, trying to get everything done before heading to Indy.
But, even with all the brouhaha, there’s time to bring you the reviews that you so desperately desire.
This week we have: Book of Nox Deluxe, Fishy Tactics, Agamemnon, Infinity Morat Rodoks, Tyrants of the Underdark, Scythe, Dungeon Busters, Dead of Winter: The Long Night, Portal: The Uncooperative Cake Acquistion Game, Vampire Hunters, Via Nebula, Antarctica, Titan Race, Agricola: Revised Edition, and Vikings on Board.
During an Ancient Greek history class, I had to read the Iliad, which tells the epic tale of the Trojan War. Helen had been taken by Paris to Troy. There he kept her while the Greeks landed on the shore, ready to reclaim her, besieging the city. People got stabbed. Armor got taken. Gods intervened whenever they wanted. Zeus forgot to yell “spoilers” before he said, “By the way, the Greeks are gonna win” at the beginning of it all (they did up winning, of course, because it’s Zeus). Soon you’ll be able to bring the conflict to your tabletops with Agamemnon, which is up on Giochistarter now.
