The city of Icarus is at the height of its power. In their revelry, they've decided to create a towering edifice to their magnificence. Ever-growing, the tower continues. But all is not well in the city, and eventually, the structure will come tumbling down. But what happens, exactly? That's up for you to decide in Icarus, the new storytelling game from Renegade Game Studios. The game comes out in September, but you can put your name on the list now to get it.
Many great civilizations have risen only to fall again. Greece, Rome, Imperial China, the Aztecs, and on and on. In Icarus, a new storytelling game up on Kickstarter, players will work together to create and tell the tale of their own great civilization at the height of its power... and then watch it all come tumbling down right in front of them.
You know, that really does only work with Monday. So be it.
Today, however, is not a Monday. It's a Saturday. And for that, we can all rejoice. Saturday means a Review Roundup! (ok, so you're probably not looking forward to Saturday just because of the Review Roundup, but I can dream that it's a major part of your life).
Today we have reviews of: Kromlech Basing Sands and Static Grasses, Pathfinder Battles: Gargantuan Red Dragon, The Assault Group WW2 Infantry, Halfling Feast, Takenoko Chibis Expansion, Fluxx Dice, Elysium, Sun Tzu, Animal Upon Animal, and Icarus.
