It’s another beautiful day here in Atlanta. The clouds are out. It’s raining. There was dense fog this morning.
What? You don’t think that’s beautiful weather?
You know what they call a place that has nothing but “beautiful, sunny days”? The desert. Relatively few things live there.
You know what they call a place that has rain all the time? The rain forest, some of the most bio-diverse and bio-dense areas of the planet! So there!
Ok… that got weirdly antagonistic for no reason. Maybe I should just go check out some game reviews. Yeah. That’s a good idea.
Today we have: Everzone, Portal, The Captain Is Dead, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Inquisitor Greyfax, Triumvirate of the Imperium – Belisarius Cawl, Raise Your Goblets, The Three Little Pigs, Concordia, Adrenaline, Hands in the Sea, Neuroshima Hex iPad Edition, 7 Wonders: Duel, Klask, Rise of Mafia, and Cavern Tavern.
Pardon the editorial for a moment, but I just have to gush a bit about this game.
I. Love. Raise Your Goblets. If you’re a fan of bluffing party games, you’ll want to check this one out. Players are nobles at a party thrown by the King. Thing is, everyone’s out to do in someone at the event. Poison is favorite murder weapon and with all the toasts that can be expected to be given, it seems a great time to go through with your plan. It will be available on the 20th of this month.
I already have my copy.
Of all the games we saw at the CMON Media Event yesterday here at Gen Con, the only one we got to play a full game of was Raise Your Goblets, and we’re all happy we did. This is a great and fun bluffing and deception game where the object is to simply live through a toast during a royal banquet. That’s not nearly as easy as it sounds.
