It’s Saturday! Woo! What cannot be accomplished on such a day as today!?
I know what I’ll be doing. I’ll be here at CMON Expo, hobnobbing with gaming media. Some of them I will now feature here on today’s Review Roundup.
Today we have: Hard City, Destiny Aurora: Renegades, Castle Von Loghan, Meeple Circus, Karuba: The Card Game, Hardback, Yummy World: Party at Picnic Palace, Lucidity: Six Sided Nightmares, Rising Sun, Darwin’s Choice, Feudum, and AW Miniatures 28mm Samurai.
Many Kickstarter campaigns are for games based on another property. But you usually just get the game. Well, the Destiny Aurora Kickstarter isn’t just for the Renegades board game. It’s also looking to fund a comic and novel for the setting. So you can get yourself a new game, a comic to check out, and book to read in your spare time. It’s kind of an all-in-one shop for the setting.
I’m a “crunch” guy. I don’t have anything particularly against fluff, but I usually skip over it to get to the rules. That extends out to just novels in general. So I’d never heard of the Destiny Aurora series of books before I saw this Kickstarter to bring it to your tabletops in board game form. Anyone seen them? Give them a read? Any good?
But as I say, that’s the book series. You don’t have to have read them to enjoy the board game based on it.
