Woo! Saturday! Woo!
As you're reading this, I'm over at the LGS, hanging out and just taking it easy. I'm hoping you're doing much the same (or have done so and are just reading this later, as I am typing this earlier). Either way, I hope you're able to make good use out of the day.
As for reviews. Of course we have those for you.
Today we have: Anachrony, Elo Darkness, Don't Mess With Cthulhu, Dragoon, Test of Honour Samurai Warband, Wreck and Ruin, Lignum, Downforce, Go Nuts for Donuts, Age of Rivals iOS, 1846: Race for the Midwest, Train Heist, and Posthuman.
Kickstarters don't always succeed the first time around. This can be due to an almost unlimited number of factors. But if that happens, creators shouldn't be disheartened. I've seen quite a few campaigns reconfigure, regroup, and relaunch with a campaign that blows away their initial expectations. It's looking like that'll be the case for ELO Darkness. They're back up on Kickstarter and this campaign's already reached its funding goal a couple times over.
ELO Darkness is a new MOBA-style board game from Reggie Games. In it, players take control of a team of 5 heroes and look to invade their opponent's territory, destroying control towers as they go along. The game uses a unique card-driven mechanic for the gameplay. The deck consists of the various hero cards, as well as action cards to supplement your hero's attacks. Push on, get to the enemy base, and destroy it to win.
